PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Meet the School Counselor!

This game is great for upper elementary students to review the role of the school counselor. The game cards can be used to help facilitate a class discussion, or they can be used with a Nerf basketball hoop as a team game. My students enjoy this game each year while reviewing those important things they need to remember about my role including confidentiality, how to make appointments, and that a counselor is their adult friend.

This zip file includes 26 game cards along with editable cards for you to add your own questions or statements to the game.

A preview is available. You may also check out my blog post to learn more about the game.

Hello, Is it possible to get the last 2 empty cards in an editable format? I'd like to type in them as opposed to filling them in by hand.

Hello! I just purchased the game and am looking forward to using it. I have one question: There is a card that says: The school counselor is my adult and then 12 spaces. What is the answer? If I can't answer it, I cant ask my kids to figure it out! :)
