ELEMENTARY GUIDANCE TOPICS

As part of the elementary guidance program, I visit each classroom to present lessons on a variety of topics. Primarily I use three curriculums: Protecting You/Protecting Me and also Preventing Violence on the Playground, and I Can Problem-Solve. I supplement these with with many other resources, including picture books and other activities. In addition, each year the Southern Kennebec Valley Family Resource Council's educator visits to address the subject of personal body safety. Below is a general idea of topics covered at each grade level
