Check out Hardin County Elementary Counselors' website - so many resources! Thank you Aimee Pike, School Counselor at Rineyville Elementary School for sharing!
Aimee Pike, School Counselor at Rineyville Elementary School also shared her "Year at a Glance Calendar"
Katelyn Johnson from Highland Elementary School shared her Monthly Report stating that it "helps me keep track or participation data for my program. I fill these out each month and share with my principal. I also copy and paste these into my advisory councils twice a year so everyone knows what I'm doing. Another way I used this data was during national school counseling week. I added up totals and shared the # of times I met with kids individually, groups, classroom lessons and shared with my staff to promote my program."

This is a spending plan activity that I made digital off of an in-class activity using google sheets. It comes from a 7th-9th grade activity I found called "Diving Into Spending Plans". I use it with 4th and 5th grade classes. I made it with google sheets and formatted it with checkboxes and formulas to make it super simple for students to use. All they have to do is check boxes and all the math is done for them. It also has an education cards link that takes them to an online deck that I created that will give students their education level and spending money for the activity. I created this in sheets so that it could be assigned as an assignment in google classroom.

Google Sheets ResourcesI took some things I have used in the past and made them digital. I created google sheets for different surveys and inventories that are data formatted with formulas, check boxes, and linked. I created them as sheets so that they could be assigned on Google Classroom, students could complete, and then submit back to me. These could be used both virtual and in-person. Most of these resources could really be used in 3rd grade and up. The Teele Learning Inventory uses pictures and could be used with any grade. I wanted to share these resources with KSCA in case they wanted to add them to their resources page so others could use them. They are view only copies, so anyone is free to make a copy.
