Erainna's books also include follow-up activities on the last few pages, which is great for the school counselor on-the-go. It's Good to be Me even has an activity built into the story - how perfect is that?!
I would definitely recommend these books for your elementary school counseling programs. I would most likely use them in a small group setting and focus on one book per week. We'd discuss the topic and overall story, then complete a follow-up activity to check for understanding. I think these are great for 3rd-4th grade students, but you may find them beneficial for 5th and 6th graders as well.
Post a comment below to be entered into a drawing for your own autographed Girl Power book set. The deadline is January 16, 2015 and the winner will be selected at random (with a computerized tool). I'd love to hear how you'd use these books in your own school counseling program and/or the types of activities you've tried in your girl groups.
Are you an author? Do you have a book that you would like me to review on my blog? If so, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be happy to check out your work and spread the word to my readers.
It's hard to believe that 3 years ago, Elementary School Counseling.org was born. I am so grateful for the collaboration, support, and enthusiasm from this amazing group of school counselors. This is a beautiful profession that I am lucky to be a part of.
As an extra "thank you" to my readers, I added a Frequently Asked Questions section to provide quick answers for the school counselor on-the-go. Check it out and feel free to contact me with other questions you think should be added to the list.
Happy New Year!
My name is Marissa Rex and I am a 1st Grade teacher and an elementary school counselor from Ohio. I hope you enjoy my site!
