This is a general recap of what the lessons include. For more specific information, we are creating a "Lessons" menu option.
There is a lesson series for kindergarten through 5th grade. Each series has 4 units that contain bi-weekly lessons for an entire school year
Each unit has lesson plans, lessons, activities, readers' theater scripts, "I Can" posters, and additional resources to implement the lessons.
Activities include games, mazes, logic puzzles, pattern block activities, journal drawing/writing, and more!
All resources are for your individual convenience and use. All the lessons are white board friendly or can be copied for your students' use.
For additional information, please refer to the "Lessons" menu option. For specific needs, questions, suggestions, or requests, please complete the "Contact Form" below.
The K5 Community was created specifically for elementary school counselors by a certified K-12 counselor.
So, you love being a counselor, but there isn't enough time to get everything done? If this sounds like you, the K5 Community is here to help.
How will it save time? Instead of creating or searching for quality lesson plans and resources, everything you need is in the K5Community. How does never having to write or find another lesson plan sound?
What else? More resources! We will be adding new materials on a regular basis. This will include small group activities, suggestions for modifications for special needs, gifted, and ELL learners.
We will be adding some lessons on specific topics that you can share with classroom teachers, such as Social Studies topics on tolerance and discrimination. For example, there will be a Rosa Park's lesson on overcoming discrimination.
There will be additional materials such as games, activities, inspirational posters, and much more!
We will be adding examples and demonstrations of ways to implement the activities. For example: how to guide students in collaboration and cooperation pattern block activities.
We will also be implementing a members' forum in the future. This forum will provide opportunities for private discussions and allow you to network with other school counselors.
Your school might provide funds for your annual membership since the lessons are designed to support students and develop their skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and critical thinking.
Your lessons will help with building school growth scores.

Both our pre-K and 6th grade lesson series have been written. They will be released after our K-5 lesson series.
Our pre-K series centers around fairy tales and has many age appropriate learning activities.
The 6th grade lesson series is centered around a readers' theater student version of Uncle Tom's Cabin. In addition to the standards, the students will focus on empathy, tolerance, and understanding.
