This multi-day guidance lesson serves as an icebreaker to foster bonding and connection between students!! It also explores interpersonal connection as a mental health support strategy. In addition to the icebreaker and connection aspects of this lesson, this resource comes with an academic success strategy. This lesson is the sixth in a series designed to decrease student problem behaviors (especially crisis incidents) and increase student academic success; it also works well as a stand-alone lesson. In using a form of this guidance lesson at my own school, my co-counselors and I noticed positive gains in both crisis prevention and academic achievement! This resource can be taught over 2-3 guidance periods or streamlined down to one short lesson. It can also be co-taught with the counselor beginning the lesson and the teacher following up and finishing the lesson. If you order this product, you will receive:

  • two 60 minute plans
  • alignment with the American School Counselor Association Mindsets & Behavior standards
  • an academic achievement activity
  • a mental health support strategy
  • a conflict resolution activity
  • a "blizzard" activity
  • a weekly grade review template and tutorial
  • a "Do You Have an Emergency?" posterette
  • a counselor request form template
  • and more!

This resource has various leveled activities, making it appropriate for children in grades three through high school.
