I think we can all agree that this school year has been a challenge, particularly when it came to scary events (i.e. Sandy Hook) and scary rumors (i.e. the world ending in 2012). During these moments of fear and concern, parents, teachers, and students flood our offices with questions: How should I address this with my students? Should I even bring it up? Am I safe? Our job is to provide answers and resources, but even we need help sometimes.
Lucy Practices a Lockdown: Preparing Young Students for School Lockdowns is an excellent resource for school counselors. This book provides developmentally-appropriate answers and explanations for our youngest students, which is often the age group adults feel most uncomfortable and uncertain talking to.
This is a must-have book for school counselors and elementary school teachers. I HIGHLY recommend it!
