Warm & Fuzzy School Counselor Guidance Lessons eBook 

Is Your School a Warm & Fuzzy One?

One of the most amazing things about the Warm Fuzzies was that students who were the most needy really responded to them. As a school counselor, I have helped many a student overcome separation anxiety by offering them a Warm Fuzzy each day if they came to school.

Out of all the many cases of separation anxiety I dealt with, only one student did not respond to the Warm Fuzzy. This student had one of the most severe cases of separation anxiety I had ever dealt with.

It lasted over 2 years and ended up in a DFCS referral. The student was also put in Special Ed. due to an emotional behavior disorder. He later ended up at one of our alternative schools for E.B.D. students.

The most precious of all my schools is the school I counsel in now. My little elementary school only has 305 students in it. The school itself is almost a hundred years old. When you walk in you feel as if you have stepped back to the 1940s.

Most of my students come from an Appalachian Mountain background. These kids are the most polite and loving students I have ever had the privilege to work with. There is a lot of poverty in a rural community, and my community has many issues with poverty as well.

Perhaps it is the fact that my students do not have as much as children in a more affluent school is a reason they responded so intensely to the warm fuzzy pom poms. The little warm fuzzies have tremendous power.

When I started at my school the students went crazy over these sweet little puff balls. All the students (K-5th) wanted to do was to get as many warm fuzzies as possible. In my other school parents would go out and buy a bag of pom pom balls for the kids. At my new school Warm Fuzzies were pure gold!    

I know it made the teachers want to pull their hair out because that is all the kids talked about for two months. I kept telling the teachers that the initial warm fuzzy phase would eventually wear off. While my students are still in love with the warm fuzzies, the craze did slow down after about six months.

One thing I have noticed over the years is that school counselors who have never been a classroom teacher struggle with behavior management during guidance lessons. A few years ago the State of Georgia required school counselors to have at least seven years of classroom teacher experience.

Being in the classroom gave me a huge advantage when I became a school counselor.Some of my school counselor friends have never had the experience of being a classroom teacher. Usually, they feel uncomfortable doing classroom guidance lessons due to this.

If you have trouble with classroom discipline try using the “Warm Fuzzy Award”. I bet you won’t have any issues with behavior anymore after this.

 

The Warm Fuzzies have been so successful for me as a school counselor that I began to name each color with a “feeling” name. I started to teach the kids about feelings using the warm fuzzies I named. I took it a step further and created a story for each of the warm fuzzies. I also took the guidance counselor’s “Words of the Month” to a new level by attaching a warm fuzzy story to it.

After creating the “Warm Fuzzy Feeling Friends” and the stories each month, I wrote up some lesson plans for each grade level that went along with the story. Eventually, this lead to the eBook called “Warm Fuzzy Guidance”.

 Each monthly story has six lesson plans that go with it. I also have included mini posters of each warm fuzzy friend and photos how I introduce each little warm fuzzy friend to my students.

One of the extras I included in this guidance book is material that covers the following school counselor celebration weeks:

1. Anti-Bullying Week

2. Red Ribbon Week

3. No Name Calling Week

I hope you enjoy my “Warm Fuzzy Guidance Lesson Stories”! I have included the following pages for you to view on this subject.
