Congratulations to the 2017 Battle of Books team at Parkwood for advancing to the finals this Friday!
2nd grade students had a lesson about sharing in March! Froggy and Friends helped us learn that there are different ways of sharing and that different situations might require us to share differently!
Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade classes had a lesson on Bullying in February. Some lessons are carrying over into March as well. Each class began by taking a bullying survey, to share their own thoughts about bullying here at PES. The lesson focused on the kids page of www.stopbullying.gov This website is where I always base my bullying lessons off of. This year students got a chance to explore the website themselves. Students broke into groups and made a poster to 'teach' their classmates about one of three topics on this website: bully definition/types, the facts about bullying, and what you can do. Below are some examples of posters that have been made so far!
I am the school counselor at Parkwood Elementary School. I am excited to share updates on this blog about guidance activities!
