Mrs. Schulte’s Counselor Corner

This next kindergarten lesson for in-person students is reviewing and re-teaching expected and unexpected behaviors in the classroom. We read a book and students got a chance to act out behaviors as their classmates decided if they were expected and unexpected. Remote students read the book, I Can Handle It and we talked about how helpful vs. unhelpful ways to handle uncomfortable feelings and situations. We practiced a few breathing strategies and reviewed coping skills. All kindergarten students will be continuously learning about coping strategies and breathing techniques throughout the year and as they move forward through school. Below are a few strategies to practice at home!
