Counseling Lessons for K-4

Students in grades K-4 receive a weekly half hour lesson focusing on counseling topics to develop positive personal behaviors, as well as social skills.  During planning the School Counselor draws on a variety of resources to create lessons that will positively impact the school environment and the student's life experience. The Tennessee School Counselor Standards and the American School Counselor Standards serve as the basis for all planning.  Following are examples of topics that may be covered between Kindergarten and Fourth Grade:
