Counseling Wisdom offers Me and My Favorites a back to school activity for 3rd and 4th grade students. This activity provides you and your students the opportunity to get to know each other better. Students will complete 20 unfinished sentences and draw a self-portrait. The unfinished sentences and self-portrait are designed to provide the counselor with a formative assessment of student's social/emotional status as they begin a new year of school. Students share their information with a partner and then introduce each other to the class. Students always have the right to pass when they do not feel comfortable sharing information.
Activity sheets can be retained by counselor for reference throughout school year and returned to students at the end of the year. At the end of the year students may reflect on there social/emotional and academic growth over the year.
