3rd Grade Classes Discuss Their Families

The third grade guidance classes discuss how important their families are.  Part of the class is making a Family Coat of Arms where they choose symbols and colors to represent what they think their family represents.  When they are all completed they also write a short paper on describing their family.  The students then can read their work to the others in class.  I always hear some very positive things, and it is a good lesson for the students to think about around the holiday season.  I wish the best to everyone during the holidays and the new year ahead!

Making the Correct Choice

The Kindergarden classes visit about making the right choice during a conflict or disagreement.  "Kelso's Choices" is a conflict resolution way of handling difficult situations.  Kelso the Frog helps by giving choices such as "wait and cool off, talk it out, or ignoring the situation" for small problems.  If they continue to have a problem, and know it is too difficult to handle by themselves, they can get an adult to help. The students listen to stories, and also have a packet they color and take home.

Awesome Attitude

We are off to a great start this 2015-2016 school year!  Looking ahead to the continuation of a successful year, our counseling theme for the start of the year is having an "Awesome Attitude".  The third and fourth grade students watched a short video, discussed ways of being positive, and some things they can do to change negative thinking into a more productive and positive way to think.

The past few weeks we have been discussing cooperation in our 3rd and 4th grade classes.  Cooperation sometimes takes work and being patient with one another.  Students find out we cooperate with just about everything we do every day.
As we were learning about cooperation, we decided to take our guidance classrooms outside and pick up the rocks and gravel that were moved off the parking lot and into the grass during the winter snow removal.  First we discussed how we could all cooperate while doing this, and thinking about safety was one of our main concerns during this activity.  It worked out great and everyone enjoyed helping and cooperating to accomplish this task.  The post discussion then led to how long it would have taken one person to do the same thing, and how cooperating with one another is more efficient.  The cooperation activity led the 4th grade class discussion, as we have been doing a unit on careers.
