{giveaway} *Winner Announced* Girls in Real Life Situations (G.I.R.L.S.), Grades K-5: School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest Day 4


Girls in Real Life Situations: Group Counseling for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development: Grades K-5 (Book and CD)I am so excited to host the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest, which is 10 days of daily giveaways starting September 1st and ending on September 10th!

Today is day four of the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest.

Today's giveaway for the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest is Girls in Real Life Situations: Group Counseling for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development: Grades K-5 (Book and CD) by Julia V. Taylor  and Shannon Trice-Black from Research Press.

Girls in Real Life Situations: Group Counseling for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development: Grades K-5 (Book and CD) is great for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The activities from G.I.R.L.S. are great for groups on topics such as self-esteem, grief and loss, children of incarcerated parents and beyond.  Some activities from G.I.R.L.S. would work with boys too (gasp!).

One activity my fifth grade students love from G.I.R.L.S. K-5 is the role play activities. There is an activity where students act out different forms of relational aggression. The students love getting up and acting with partners or using puppets. They also come up with positive solutions for the situation. I work with students in fifth through eighth grade and I have both the  G.I.R.L.S. K-5 and the G.I.R.L.S. 6-12 curricula.

The G.I.R.L.S. K-5 curriculum conveniently comes with a CD with all the handouts you need to print, including pre and post tests! It is great to be able to print from the CD instead of having to photocopy pages (we all know that photocopies don't always come out like you want them to).

Having met Julia V. Taylor in person and presented with her at the ASCA National Conference in Seattle, WA, this curriculum is even more special to me.  Julia is an amazing person full of energy and creative ideas; the G.I.R.L.S. K-5 curriculum is a testament to her level of enthusiasm for school counseling!

Girls in Real Life Situations: Group Counseling for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development: Grades K-5 (Book and CD) would make a great addition to any elementary school counselor's curricula.
