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.
