Counselor’s Corner

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 1.08.05 PM  Students in Junior Kindergarten through Second Grade read and discussed the book, “Are You Grateful Today?;” written by Kris Yankee and Marian Nelson.  This book does a really nice job of having kids reflect on their lives to determine what is going well.  Ask your child to share their picture and writing that he/she worked on in guidance class.  Discuss all the wonderful and positive aspects of their lives such as, he/she has parents who love and support them, he/she has a home to enjoy, a school in which he or she is appreciated and encouraged to grow,etc.  Reinforce all the positive aspects of your son/daughter’s life.  Here are some excellent articles in regard to raising grateful children.
