Mrs. Schwab, Guidance Counselor, standing next to her Pleasant St. School Guidance Office bulletin board, March 17, 2014
During March, many teachers and staff are celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday, by reading Dr. Seuss books with their students. I am celebrating Dr. Seuss’ amazing work by reading his books to my guidance students, and showing short Dr. Seuss DVD movie clips, which show characters being kind, caring and resisting bullying (Horton Hears a Who), sticking up for rights (The Lorax), and respecting differences (The Sneeches). Guidance students will discuss these skills, draw pictures about kindness, caring, respecting differences, and do role plays or puppet shows to practice these positive social skills. In addition, the student work posted above my bulletin board is work from Mrs. Robinson’s class, on bullying prevention skills from the Steps to Respect lessons I have been teaching to the 4th grade classes and teachers.
