Many School Counselors struggle with lessons to engage their youngest learners, PreK students! This is a packet of EVERYTHING you need to conduct PreK or Primary-level Guidance lessons
all year long.
Who doesn't love a birthday party?!?
The on-going theme of this packet is a birthday party. Through the course of the lessons, students will learn about topics like kindness and anger management in the context of something they know (and often look forward to 364 days in advance!).
Each lesson includes the following:
∴ Lesson Plan (with materials, introduction, activity, and discussion/closing)
∴ Suggested supplemental books and digital links (also in a separate file for easy access)
∴ Teacher Script and/or one-page Story to introduce topic
∴ Whole Group Activity/Discussion (which often include sorting/discussion cards)
∴ An "I Can" Poster
∴ Corresponding "I Can" Coloring Page and Certificates for student to take home
Check out the PREVIEW
for a visual of what's included in a sample lesson!
Sprinkled throughout the lessons are original songs, discussion posters, and activity pages.
As a School Counselor, I travel from room to room, so aside from a books/computer (should you choose to use them) and crayons, I made this as much of a print and go
packet as possible.
Each lesson includes MORE than what is needed for a 20-30 minute lesson, so pick and choose what you want to use or spread the lessons apart for multiple sessions, or even use it all for a 45 minute+ lesson!
