A happy student is ready to learn. As school counselors, it is our job to help all students be ready to learn. That leaves us looking to teach children about letting go of things that hurt.
This elementary counseling activity allows students to talk about feelings and make connections between feelings and experiences. Students will be asked to throw away their negative experiences while keeping the good ones. When we hold onto happy thoughts, we are thinking good things. Thinking good things is an excellent coping strategy.
