Classroom Guidance



    Classroom Guidance for 2021-2022

    Once a month, I go into each classroom to present a classroom guidance lesson.  This page will let you know what lesson I will be teaching for that month.  If you have any questions, or do not want your child to participate, please email me at

    My theme for this year is "Superheroes".

    super Snoopy 
    We are going to focus on being kind to others and ourselves.

    Our Character focus for December will be Respect for others and ourselves by cooperating, following instructions, and being a good teammate.
    All students should have access to my Google classroom, if they don't, please contact me and I will add them.
    Our Lessons...
    Nov. 29 - Dec. 2 -  in all grades we will be doing group juggling.  This involves gently tossing a beanbag around the circle in a way that all students are included and get to participate.  Eventually, we will work our way up to tossing 6 beanbags.  It's a lot of fun, but the kids have to pay attention and cooperate with each other to be successful.
    Dec. 6-9 - there will be no lesson because the Penguin Patch will be going on during our lesson times.
    Dec. 13-16 - The students will get to choose a book to keep as a gift from the librarian, Ms. Cashion, and the PTA.  We will end our time together with a Christmas sing along.  I will be playing the saxophone for all of the classes and they are invited to sing along.
    Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
