Ms. Chandler's Counseling Corner
I hope you all had a refreshing and safe winter break. There are a few things happening in January! I will be starting TOOLBOX lessons in Kindergarten through second grade classrooms to help students cope when situations arise. The 5 tools, out of the 12 total, we will use for the rest of the school year is a breathing tool, personal space tool, an empathy tool, a garbage can tool, and a listening tool.
A toolbox has two parts, the box itself and the tools inside it. The tools represent the qualities inside of us and give us an understanding on how to navigate life's challenges successfully.
In January we will be focusing on the idea of "Not Yet"! Below you can find ways to work with your children at home to help them understand that even though they aren't understanding something YET, they can learn it & even though they can't do a math problem YET, doesn't mean they wont learn.
Parent Support Night
The workshop for parents of elementary school children will be presented by the elementary counselors of the Lake Havasu Unified School District.
Helping Children Manage Emotions Using Toolbox
Please join elementary counselors Susie Martin, Marti Miller and Sara Chandler as they share how you can use the Toolbox curriculum with your children at home. This curriculum was purchased by the Lake Havasu Unified School District to meet the Arizona social and emotional competencies for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. It is based on 12 tools that anyone can use to improve managing emotions and social relationships.

Practice Your Breathing
Focusing on strengths can be encouraging and motivating for students as they navigate new things and learn new material. The idea of "not yet" refers to the fat that someone may not be able to do something yet, but it can be learned. Sometimes learning takes time. This focus can be helpful for everyone, and reminds us that learning new things doesn't happen automatically.
