What We Use
Every year, we get asked what books, games, materials, and tools a school counselor should have. This page has all the resources that we have used and love.
Nothing other than what we pull off the shelf every week.
Your Office Shelf
Your shelves should be stocked with supplies that you can use again and again.
Practical Office Decor
A neat and pretty office can help students feel at ease, but it is also an opportunity to use your decor to promote your counseling program
Open our desk drawers and this is what you will find. Post-its, pens, highlighters, paper clips, bins.
Art is a great way to get kids to express themselves. Stock your shelf with paper, markers, pipe cleaners, glue sticks, and more.
Certain props can make a concept come to life a student. Chimes for mindfulness - Fake glasses for perspective taking - mirrors for emotional awareness - and more.

Materials that you can give students, such as fidgets, therabands, reminder bracelets.
