We created this community to help elementary school counselors have a place to find resources and information.
K5Counselors exists because school counselors are critical to social, emotional, and academic development of students. We are devoted to supporting elementary counselors across the U.S. and around the world who need the tools and resources to stay on the cutting edge.
Other counselors have told me what a problem they have finding quality and comprehensive lessons and activities that align from grade to grade. To find quality topics, they have to search many different websites.
K5Counselors provides a central location for quality lessons, activities, and other resources. My blogs will address many of the questions that I have seen posted by counselors. Some blogs will include free related resources and lessons.
We also offer a comprehensive classroom curriculum for Pre-K through 6th grade for the school year. The curriculum includes bi-weekly lesson plans, lessons, and associated activities. In addition, there are decorative, colorful "I Can" posters.
Lessons align to ASCA standards and are based on classic children's literature in a readers' theater format. You need not search for books or stories, the script is included. There is a separate curriculum for each grade level that is vertically and horizontally aligned for the school year. All materials are white board friendly.
The content is based on best practice. A certified K-12 school counselor and teacher who knows what really works in a classroom and school campus created it.
