Classroom Guidance


During the first week of school  Ms. Knauer and Ms. Schleicher introduced themselves to all classes before starting monthly classroom guidance lessons. Ms. Knauer asked students in grades 3 – 5 to complete a needs assessment so that she could better plan her classroom guidance lessons this year to meet student needs.  This year, we will be following the Baltimore County School Counseling Core Curriculum. Lesson topics for this year include:

September- Introductions and Orientation

October- Bullying

November- Conflict Resolution

December- Personal Safety

February- Character

January- Celebrating Differences

March- Emotion Regulation

April- Coping Skills

May- Careers

  All parts of our program are directly related to the Baltimore County Guidance Essential Curriculum and the Baltimore County Blueprint For Progress. After each lesson, students will bring home a parent letter explaining what was taught. Be on the lookout for these letters so that you may discuss with your student what they learned!
