Counseling check-in papers include 3 different leveled papers for students to check-in and report how they feel. Check-ins include faces as well as words for feelings.
The paper for older students includes a place to list something they need to talk about and how big the problem is.
I use these at the start of each lesson with my students. They are a wonderful resource for my students to tell me what they need. For the younger students, they just write on the back if they need something.
