December School Counseling Lessons
In the month of December, students in grades K-5 identified the various caregivers in their lives, both at home and at school, and learned what job each caretaker has to ensure that they are safe and healthy. Student learned that if they are ever in an unsafe or dangerous situation, they are to say, "No, Go-someplace safe, even if it is school the next day, and Tell a trusted adult what happened. Students learned about the Maryland State Law that explains the legal age children are allowed to stay home (or in a car) alone so they can stay safe. Students learned that 8 years old is the legal age when they can stay home by themselves, and that in order to watch/babysit a child under the age of 8, they would need to be at least 13 years old. Check out the images below to learn what students learned during the month of December.
