Yesterday the Knox County School Counselors were able to meet and share ideas. I left with lesson plans for weeks. I got so many good ideas, and even left with 2 new books added to my Amazon Wish List. You know I love books!!
"The Three Ninja Pigs" by Corey Rosen Schwartz available at Amazon. These three pigs aren't going to let that wolf blow their house down. They are doing to use determination and team work to make sure they are safe. The book is told in rhymes and watch out because one of those rhymes is butt. and Best for grades 3+.
Follow up: The counselor created this cute "Perseverance Pig" color sheet. Student should decorate their pig in a way that represents something they struggle with, but want to persevere and get better at. For example: if a student wants to get better at basketball their pig could wear a jersey and be holding a basketball. If they want to get better at math, he could be holding a calculator and have a math equation on his shirt.
Book: "Humpty Dumpty Climbs Again" by Dave Horowitz also available at Amazon. The story of how Humpty Dumpty looses his confidence after his fall and has to find the courage to put himself back together again.
Best for grades K-2.
Follow up: She created an adorable egg page and asked students to complete the following sentences. I am good at________. I am not the best at___________, but I am doing to keep trying.
