Creating a Caring Classroom Family

Now that it's time for a new school year to begin, life finds me increasingly eager for the first day to arrive. My students and I will be blessed with approximately nine months together; how do we want to spend that dash between August of this year and May of next year?

Taking a look at the word "family" gives us insight into what's…

The Crafty Counselor: Kindness Class Projects

Kindness Class Projects

For our second Kindergarten lesson, we read The Crayon Box That Talked by Shane DeRolf. We discussed…
