What Every Student Needs-10 Weeks of “Quick Guidance” using “Quick Writes”$25.00Add to cartView Cart
This resource will assist facilitators who implement social skills groups with no more than 12 students. Each interactive lesson is designed to support a 45 minute session focusing on pro-social "common sense" behaviors. The resource will also assist new counselors who are seeking ways to jumpstart their school guidance program by having a ready to use session guide.
An added feature is that each lesson allows students an opportunity to incorporate writing during every small group session. Writing is a critical component that is quickly being lost due to texting, Instagram, tweeting, etc. As such it is important that students have varied opportunities to communicate in written form as this necessary skill is an important component that will continue to be important in the workplace and other areas of life.
Sample session topics:
-Being polite "saying please and thank you"
-Making healthy choices in friends
-Embracing my uniqueness
This resource includes 10 ready to use 45 minute guidance lessons.
DICE – Introduce Randomness In Your Classroom!$17.00Add to cartView Cart
Instruction Manual with dice ideas for your classroom included.
We can often be our own worst enemy when it comes to keeping our students attention. As an example, we often use the Round Robin technique to ensure students participates equally. The problem with this approach is it signals students that when done participating (e.g. answered the question), it is time to relax, tune out, and ignore the rest of that lesson. What to do? Adding an element of chance and randomness (DICE) into your flow of lessons can greatly increase student participation and attention. You can have students roll to do certain tasks, assign specific tasks you want them to do, or a combination thereof. Remember, the idea is that they will not know when they may be called on and that when their number comes up, the expectation is there for them to participate. Keeping it random prevents your students from getting lax in their attention and sends the very powerful signal that at any time, they are responsible for the information and learning within your classroom. This Polyhedral 7-Die Set with velveteen bag allows you to roll any number at any time!
