My New Favorite Thing

As the new school year is in full swing, and referrals are beginning to make their way in, I wanted to come up with a cool way to help kids (immediately) with all of those useful strategies that we teach day-in and day-out.  Since I can't see every student right away, for those who just need some reminders of strategies I created these "Be A Gecko Problem-Solver" cards.  I heart these cards!  On the back of the card are 11 strategies kids can try to solve their problem.  There is also a reminder at the bottom to seek an adult if their is a safety concern, otherwise the good-ole standby of "try three before me" can be used.  They just arrived.  I think I will give one to each teacher to put in the classroom.  What do you guys think?

Blog Facelift :)

I've really enjoyed discovering so many amazing School Counseling blogs this summer. I've added some things that I hope you will enjoy, including this awesome book shelf of some of my most favorite books to use in counseling. In addition I finally figured out how to put the Pin It button with each of my posts. So, if you find one of my posts to be helpful and you would like to pass it along please hit Pin It and add to your Pinterest page.
