TpT “School Counselor” Blog Hop

Posted on

TPT School Counselor Blog HopI’m excited to join Heather today for the Teachers pay Teachers School Counselor Blog Hop.  Heather, author of The Helpful Counselor blog, came up with the idea for participants to create posts highlighting their favorite paid and free TpT resources.

The first resource I am highlighting is one of my FREE products.  Tattling Vs. Reporting is my most popular freebie.  I created it for school counselors and teachers to help their students understand the differences between the two words.  Doing this activity helps students learn that tattling is used to get a person into trouble, but reporting is used to get a person out of trouble.  To complete the activity, students cut out ten statements children could make to their teacher or another adult.  They decide which five are necessary to “report” to the teacher.  We report situations to an adult when someone is being hurt mentally or physically or if property is being damaged on purpose.  The remaining five statements are examples of tattling.  Tattling occurs when children tell an adult what another child is doing in hopes of getting him or her into trouble.  The statements are usually problems that could be ignored.  With kids being kids, I don’t see the need for the this type of lesson ever going away. :)

The paid resource I chose to highlight is Good Character is Popping Up Everywhere.  This product has a popcorn theme and sells for $3.75.  It includes 8 character trait display cards and  a character trait paper folding activity similar to the one I wrote about in THIS POST. Each trait and a picture is printed on the outside of each flap.  Under the character flap, students write about what the trait means and give an example of how one would demonstrate the trait.  My Favorite Character Trait is another activity for students to write about their favorite trait, tell how they show the trait and draw a self-portrait. A word search and answer key is also included. There is a Brainstorm and Write sheet which can be used when teaching character traits or many other subjects.  Be sure to check out the preview link for this product on TpT to see what’s included.

My bulletin board display ties in well too!  Eight pieces of the popcorn have a character trait on them.  This board is located in the main hallway of my school.  Pictures of students showing good character can be added throughout the school year.

Character Trait Superpower Poster Freebie

Posted on

I am in the process of creating my “Superpower” character trait theme to use in my school counseling program for the coming school year.  I’ve decided to retire my ice cream cones and scoops for now.  In preparation, I started by making a set of eight posters to go along with the character traits adopted by my school district.  Each trait will have it’s own “Super Hero.”  I will use these super heroes to introduce the traits during my classroom counseling lessons each month.

Throughout the school year, students will meet Responsibility Reggie, Respect Renee, Courage Carlos, and Kindness Keisha.  They will also meet Self-Discipline Steve, Integrity Isabel, Perseverance Pam, and Good Judgment George.

Each poster has a picture of the super hero.  The hero introduces himself or herself and says what his or her superpower is.  That hero will then be the face of that trait for the month.  Students will earn a small image of the super hero of the month each time I visit.  I will make super hero shields for each classroom to display their super heroes on throughout the school year.  This will be done similarly to the ice cream scoops I’ve used for so many years.

I am giving Respect Renee to my readers as a freebie.  You can download it by clicking HERE or by clicking the picture above.  Visit my TpT store to purchase the entire set of eight posters for only $3.00.  You can also find activity sheets to go along with each trait and hero in my store as well.  Additionally, both are sold together in a COMBO pack. Click the pictures below to check them out!

My School Counselor- Freebie Download

Posted on

FREE TpT Download- My School Counselor ActivityIf you are already thinking about your Meet the School Counselor lessons, let this FREEBIE be one activity on your list.  It’s a simple activity sheet for school counselors to use with students as they discuss their role within the school.  It can be used like a note taking sheet or a review activity to be completed after meeting the counselor.

The sheet offers a space for students to list reasons to see the counselor.  You may have them brainstorm and share, or you may give them reasons to list on their sheets for future reference.

There are two sentences to complete also.  One says “The counselor is my adult friend because…”  It’s important that students realize how your relationships with them differ from those with administrators and teachers.  The other says “My counselor keeps my secrets unless…”  Your first meeting with students should always include this discussion.  School counselors keeps secrets unless someone is being hurt.

The cloud at the top is a space for students to write what they want to talk to the counselor about.  You can give the students an opportunity to share their clouds privately with you during the lesson as you circulate the room.

You can download this FREE sheet at my TpT Store.

Meet the Counselor GameI’ve also created a product to go along with my Meet the Counselor game shared in my post Meet the School Counselor Ideas from last year.  In this post I shared about a game I play with my 5th graders which incorporates a Nerf basketball  and goal set.  This product sells for $3.00 on TpT.  However, it is discounted to $2.50 today through Tuesday, July 16th.

TpT Sale

Teachers pay Teachers is having it’s quarterly site wide sale today and tomorrow.  Use the code TAD13 to receive 10% off of your total purchase.  I have added an additional 15% off in my store on all products, for a total of 25% off any purchases made today and tomorrow.

I recently added a new product called Feeling Faces which focuses on the four “staple” feelings: happy, sad, angry, and scared.  To give you an idea of what the product is like, I created a freebie to share here with you.  Click the picture below to download. (Thank you so much to a reader who caught a type-o in the last sentence!  The PDF has been fixed! It’s amazing how you read over and read over things, but they still slip by!)

FeelingsFreebie

Students read the sentence and decide how the character is feeling.  They circle the feeling word and draw the face on the character showing how he or she is feeling.  On the second page, students write about a time they felt the same way along with three sentences telling what they can do if they ever feel that way in the future.  The product includes four sets similar to this freebie.  Be sure to check them out!
