Many of us are now on an extended Spring Break. I just learned we won’t be returning to school until April.
It’s easy to see this as a vacation, but it is not. It’s easy to call this a wash of a school year, but we can’t.
In my opinion, by not reaching and teaching our students virtually right now we are implying that school counselors and educators do on a daily basis have no value. How can we expect our states and country to give more funds to education and lower counselor to student ratios if we imply that students can go months without us?
I encourage you to share with your school and families.
I’d also like to give a shout out to Mrs. Stack and Stackable SEL for inspiring me to do mini “PAWS” lessons online this year for my school. Thanks to this many of my lessons are ready to access by teachers, parents, and caregivers. You can access 24 of my PAWS lessons here. They are in Google Slides so please feel free to share the link with your students and families.
Please remember you can make your own copy if you want to edit and add in your bitmoji etc.
