This lesson teaches students about being respectful, responsible, caring, and cooperative from two puppets. The lesson is very well written. It includes standards, assessment, a script for the puppets, and printable signs to hold up during the lesson.
The lesson suggests that the counselor should hold up the signs themselves during the lesson. Since I only have 2 arms and was using 2 puppets, I couldn't figure out how to do that. I told students to listen for the word on their sign and hold up the sign when they heard it. It worked well and the students loved being involved.
This lesson got plenty of laughs as I tried to talk the way I thought a turtle would talk. I thought my supervising counselor was going to lose it! Hahaha.........
