Honor Roll

This week's newest addition to the Entirely Elementary...School Counseling Honor Roll is:
Alyssa Hall, author of Classy Counselor, is the school counselor at a private Christian elementary school in Tennessee. 

Alyssa created some really fun Sentence Completion Cards to be used in her work as an elementary school counselor. These Sentence Completion Cards can be used in a plethora of ways when working with children individually or within a small support group. In her free download, you will see that the cards address a number of areas including feelings, conflict, and social situations. Also, for those school counselors who are in religious settings, there are some spiritual cards in the set.

Alyssa states, "I am excited to use these Sentence Completion Cards this year.   I have used the sentence completion technique before, but I think I'm going to enjoy having the cards to lead this strategy."                                                   

                                                                        "One thing I love about these is that they address many different topics including grief, family changes, emotions, conflict, abuse, behavior (to name a few). These statements are very purposeful for certain topics that might arise in counseling elementary and middle school aged children."                                                              


                                                           "These cards can be used as ice breakers for classroom or small-group counseling. I plan on choosing the cards that best fit each individual student. This tool will hopefully help my students did deeper into our conversations."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
Alyssa was  generous enough to include a Freebie download of the cards in her blog post titled: Sentence Completion Cards. Head on over there and download them today!

I've visited Classy Counselor a number of times and she a has a lot of fantastic ideas and lessons posted. I especially loved looking at her office pictures. Who doesn't dream of a whole classroom for an office space?!!?
