Beginning of Year Counselor Introduction Lesson w Kid President Video
This is a PowerPoint presentation lesson that introduces you as the school counselor, lets the kids know a bit about you, and opens the door to talking about what a counselor is and does.
Concepts covered include the following:
• guidance topics,
• office location,
• your background,
• qualifications to become a counselor,
• and how to request a time to see the counselor.
The kids always enjoy seeing photos of my family, my pets, and me, and it helps them to form a bond with me and start the process of trust and establishing a positive connection. This is especially important for new students or if you are new to your school.
I use this year after year and just update photos to more current ones. It is so simple to use!! All you have to do is personalize it for yourself and just insert your photos and comments to personalize this for YOU!!
It has 47 slides and includes a review of the important information that you especially want them to remember at the end of the presentation. Also, it includes an inspirational welcome from Kid President video link which the kids love! It is a great way to start your school year on a positive foot!
This is completely customizable and can be made to fit your procedures and needs. I use this and have found it to be extremely helpful in making meaningful connections with the students.
I have included transitions, background music, and animation to help keep the students’ interest. In this day and age, it is tough to compete with all of the electronic stimulation that students are used to in daily life without utilizing movement and color. I have found this to really help. Also, the PowerPoint format helps me to know that I have been comprehensive in covering all concepts.
