Middle-school can be hard to navigate. Teens and preteens deal with a lot of transitions.

  • New beginnings
  • Friendship changes
  • Body changes
  • New procedures

And for many students, self-doubt can creep in.

This activity guide was designed to accompany the Middle School Misfits: The Stained Glass Tree chapter book. It provides 20 lessons and activities to help teachers and counselors guide students as they learn to adjust and make the most of this important time in their lives.

The guide is broken into five sections:

  • A Healthy Self
  • Interacting with Others
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Decision Making
  • Just for Fun

Each section includes three to five activities to engage students in discussion, self-reflection, and learning on these important topics. The activities includes instructions, a materials list, worksheets and handouts which are available for download.

Whether you are a teacher, a school counselor, or a caregiver of a middle school student - this guide gives you concrete tools to help kids in grades 4-8, navigate their social emotional challenges.
