GAMS Hosts Zones Celebration for Kindergarten Scholars
GAMS SEL Comprehensive School Counseling Program :
KINDERGARTEN ZONES Puppetry Curriculum
Understanding that content knowledge and academic skills are only part of the equation for academic success, GAMS scholars continue to work and learn to develop positive coping tools to support self management and self regulation through the delivery of a Comprehensive School Counseling Program. Through a series of interactive Puppetry lessons, with trained 5th graders serving as role models and puppeteers , students are thriving as they learn emotional self -understanding and self-regulation. Older students develop formidable relationships with younger students as they lead, mentor and grow.
Through a series of interactive puppetry lessons developed and led by School Counselor, Pattie Lofaro, Kindergarten students are taught the common language of the ZONES of Regulation as well as strategies or " tools" to support self management. The SEL program is designed to teach students to assume responsibility for self and actions, demonstrate self discipline and self control and demonstrate effective coping skills when faced with a problem.
