My school colors are blue and yellow. Our mascot is an arrow. I created simple signs in MS Word. I am attaching velcro dots to the poster and have an arrow that will point to where I am. Door signs are a must for counselors. It takes me a second to change my sign as I walk out the door and saves students, teachers, administrators and parents from being frustrated with not knowing where I am.
Introduce yourself to the class. Use the School Counselor Toolbox to facilitate a conversation about what a counselor does. Let students take turns coming up and picking an item and share why they think I might have it in my toolbox. (remind students that not everyone will get a turn)
* I have also supplemented this lesson by starting with the story Mrs Joyce Gives the Best High Fives: Introducing the School Counselor by Erainna Winnett
This lesson helps students to understand the role of a school counselor and learn the numerous ways I am here to support them. The drawings pull my heart strings as I see what parts of my job they like best.
