Discovering Personal Strengths with Grinner and Blackbelt
The popular SMART Guidance™ series returns in a new, more compact format designed to be quick, convenient, and easy for school counselors or teachers to use.
Grinner (the flying squirrel) and Blackbelt (the martial-art-master raccoon) teach children about PERSONAL STRENGTHS and how they can be used to help us become more effective socially, emotionally and academically. Everyone has a unique combination of personal strengths. It can be extremely helpful for young people to recognize their own unique combination of these assets. In this program children learn about their personal strengths and how they can use them to approach big & little challenges and reach short & long-term goals. Once children become more aware of their personal strengths, they become more creative and effective in approaching challenging issues they face every day. In the process, they also become better encouragers of others by recognizing and describing the personal strengths they notice in them.
The interactive lessons in this program are fun and memorable, They can be completed with individuals, in small groups or classroom lessons or at home with a parent or guardian.
The six lessons include:
Understanding Personal Strengths
Energizing Your Personal Strengths with Short-Term Goals
Energizing Your Personal Strengths to Reach Long-Term Goals
