3 Free Berenstain Bears Classroom Guidance lessons to use with ActivInspire / Promethean boards


I created 3 free classroom guidance lessons -- perfect for K-3 elementary school counselors teaching socio-emotional and cognitive objectives! You can easily save the lessons to a thumb drive or download to your school's shared drive to access the file when you present your classroom guidance lesson on the Promethean Board in the classrooms. (This is a great way to use technology with students!) 

Most counselors already have these Berenstain Bears books in their collections. If you don't already have them, check your school library. If not, the paperback books can be purchased for $5-6 each. All 3 lessons also have links to the 10-12 min. movies on YouTube.

  • K-3 lesson on bully prevention and making good choices. Compare and contrast the book with the movie. Students share positive ways to deal with bullies and how to make good choices when it's hard to do so.
  • Story line: Too-Tall Grizzly and his gang dare Brother to steal a watermelon from Farmer Ben's patch, and when the gang runs away, Brother is caught. Farmer Ben  offers Brother advice about standing up for what is right.

Elementary school counselor teaches about bad habits with the Berenstain Bears

NOTE: If you aren't already a member of TeacherPayTeachers (TpT), it's definitely worth the time to sign-up so you can download LOTS of great resources for free (and for a fee) from working counselors and teachers! Even though it's designed for teachers, there is a School Counseling section.
