The following is an outline for a 7 week small counseling empowerment group for girls in 1st 4th grade. The focus of the group is to empower the girls through a collection of books and activities. The participants should build confidence, self-awareness, and communication skills over the seven week span.
During this book club, the students will have the chance to take one book home each week. If the books are not available for all students, the fun books can always be read at the beginning of each session. While a set of books is suggested for use during this program, the program can be implemented without the books and with only the use of the activities outlined.
The following Fancy Nancy books are suggested readings throughout the sessions:
Fancy Nancy Loves! Loves! Loves! by Rose O’Conner
Fancy Nancy’s The Show Must Go On by Rose O’Conner
Fancy Nancy’s My Family Tree by Rose O’Conner
Fancy Nancy’s Favorite Fancy Words by Rose O’Conner
Fancy Nancy & the Mean Girl by Rose O’Conner
Fancy Nancy’s Tea for Two by Rose O’Conner
This program does incorporate the use of technology. The following documents are included with this outline:
• Home Assignment Sheets
