I use "I wish my counselor knew..." on the first day of guidance with my upper grades (3-5). Students can include their names or fill them out anonymously, although for this assignment I do encourage them to write their names. I leave the assignment very open-ended and do not require them to share them aloud afterward, unless they really want to! I collect them and read them afterward. This is an easy way to quickly learn about your students and tap into what is truly on their mind in the moment. The responses range from silly, to proud, to deeply personal.
If you find this resource helpful, please remember to leave a review, follow my shop, and check out my other listings at Counselor Station. Thank you for shopping!
