Description

Class Experience

They will learn about each of the topics listed above and how they all work together to create positive self-esteem and better emotional health.
I have a Master's degree in Mental health, and a bachelor's degree in psychology. I also have 6 years of clinical experience discussing many topics with kids. I often used this book and the activities that we will be doing in class to successfully help clients in my office setting.
"Homework" activities are completely optional. They will be started in class and can be finished outside of class. Students can bring activities with them to the next class to share if desired. I do believe completion of these activities will help students stay engaged in the class and have a better understanding of the content.

Activities for each week are as follows:

WEEK ONE: Draw 3 pictures of yourself. One in your "mud mind", one in your "sparkler mind", and one in your "clear mind."
WEEK TWO: Thought bubble worksheet (attached to class).
WEEK THREE: We will learn deep-breathing during this class. Students can practice after the class. I will also use bubbles to help students be engaged in practicing breathing. Please have your student bring bubbles to class if you have some. (However, this is not required.)
WEEK FOUR: We will discuss gratitude and will discuss the use of the gratitude journal (attached to the class.) Again, while it is not required, students are encouraged to keep the journal daily (The journal is a week-long document. Students can bring it to week 5 class to share if they would like to. Also, we will make a "feelings trash bag." Please bring a paper lunch sack and decorating supplies to class.
WEEK FIVE: We will role-play basic home, school, friend scenarios and what it looks like for students to avoid responsibility vs. take responsibility.(Nothing for outside of class.)
WEEK SIX: Simple goal-setting worksheet that will be discussed in class and students can finish outside of class.
WEEK SEVEN: We will discuss different types of peer pressure and examples that the students may have dealt with. We may also do some role play of how to handle situations. I will attach a handout to the classroom with some tips for dealing with peer pressure that the kids can use as a reminder.
WEEK EIGHT: Open discussion of all that we have learned. Also discuss how we can use what we have learned to help others. 

Supplies are listed individually for each week above. It is always a good idea for students to have writing utensils. I will post a weekly message in the classroom reminding you of any supplies needed or suggested for the upcoming week. For the first week, students need paper and basic drawing supplies (whatever they prefer) to draw themselves.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
As listed above, we will role-play in some classes. Students may role-play a negative role, such as not taking responsibility for their actions, or pressuring another another student to do something wrong. However, it will be made clear that these are the are the attitudes and actions we don't want to emulate in life. If no student in the class wants to play the negative aspects of these scenarios, I will play them and students will only play the positive role. I simply offer all roles to students to increase class engagement.
I will be reading from the Pumsy Story Book by Jill Andersen in class. (Out of print).  Handouts attached to the class are either be created by me, or will have source information (website, etc.) At the bottom of the handout.
