I got to teach my #FlatGroovyPoovey "Introduction to the School Counselor" lessons to second grade students this week, and it was SO FUN! They really enjoyed the Flat Stanley book, and I connected how Flat Stanley's feelings changed throughout the book just like ours will change throughout the year. I also compared the adventures we will have this school year to the amazing adventures that Flat Stanley had in the book.
At the end, I pulled out the infamous Flat Groovy Poovey worksheet so I could check for
All in all, it was a blast to teach, and the kids got really excited when I gave them the parent letters explaining that I want them to take Flat Groovy Poovey on family adventures this year and email me pictures. It will certainly be a memorable way to introduce myself to families that may not know me yet. I am going to create a bulletin board that shares the family pictures I receive and will also Tweet them out. Check out the two I have already gotten- #FlatGroovyPoovey ziplining (my son's!) and having a sleepover with friends. My Smartboard lesson and the Flat School Counselor worksheet can both be found on my Life on the Fly TPT store. What fun "Introduction to the School Counselor" lessons have you been teaching???
Happy Counseling! ~ Angela
