The Character Trait for May is Positivity!  Perfect timing to help transition students to Phase 4 in their distance learning. Have your student identify some positive aspects of transitioning more to their teacher for learning, or maybe pick out a couple of “silver lining” examples they have noticed with being at home more. And, encourage them to think positive thoughts if feeling down: “this won’t last forever” or “I can ask for help if I’m having trouble with school stuff” as this can be a very helpful self-calming skill.

If your student is still struggling with sadness or other strong emotions, this read-a-loud may help: A Kid’s Guide to Feeling Sad.

Deep breaths and Mindfulness are more great calming tools - check out some of these guided meditations from Calm (scroll down for a guided breath video).

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out if you or your student would like to talk to either of us! 

In care,

Your School Counselors
