Unit 1: Empathy/Feelings
September 06, 2012
Hello everyone! We are now in our 3rd week of school and half way through our first Counselor Time unit! Each grade level has been working on naming feeling words, identifying how others feel, and praciticing empathy. We have been talking about why it is important to understand and care about how other people feel. If you could reiterate this at home that would be wonderful!
I am also encouraging all students to replace "happy," "mad," and "sad" with a different feeling word so we can build their "feeling word vocabulary."
Another thing to encourage at home is bucket filling. As a school we strive to be bucket fillers not just to our classmates but to our teachers and families as well!
If you ever have any questions about what we are doing during Counselor Time feel free to email me or give me a call! I will update each time we have a new unit! Unit 2 will focus on Study Skills!
