Attendance Matters Posted on by Vanessa In my school counseling program, I have enjoyed doing attendance small group sessions. My students have really enjoyed the activities and seem to get the big picture of why regular school attendance is so important. The small group meets six times. During our first session, the students brainstorm reasons why school attendance matters.
This year, I had them brainstorm on their own sheets first. While we discussed the different ideas, they were free to add them to their own lists. We concluded by filling in the bubble chart together. For the second session, the students made a foldable.
Inside, they Positive choices about Responsible Routines. After assembling the foldable with the labels, they wrote under each flap giving responsible routines for the morning, after school and at night.
This includes routines such as waking up on time to get to school, having everything ready for the next day the night before and going to bed at a decent hour.
While watching, they write points from the videos that stand out to them. Afterwards, the group members share their notes.
The students cut out, sequence and glue six strips in order and illustrate each on the filmstrip sheet. If there are any activities that students need to finish from previous meetings, time is allowed during this session.
When we meet for our final session, we play Roll and Respond. Students roll a die and respond to sentence starters about attendance. They take all of their completed activities with them to share with their teachers and families.
After we have completed the small group, I continue to keep up with the attendance patterns of each of the students when I meet monthly with the attendance committee at my school. I will also meet again with the students to review what was learned in our small group. Individual sessions are held with students who continue to have attendance concerns.
