Too Good For Drugs (TGFD):
During weekly classroom counseling lessons, I have begun using a new curriculum provided by Kanawha County Schools called “Too Good For Drugs” (TGFD). The program will last for 10 weeks and was developed to empower children with the social-emotional learning and substance abuse prevention skills they need to lead happy and healthy lives. TGFD cultivates positive outcomes through the development of goal setting, decision making, conflict resolution, and effective communication skills. Lessons are developmentally appropriate and were written for each grade level, Kindergarten through 5th grade. As always, we feel that it is important for you to talk to your child(ren) about what they have learned and information for parents will be uploaded here each week so that you can follow along and be aware of what your child is learning during classroom counseling. TGFD provides “Home Workouts” that you can complete with your child(ren) which supplement the lesson taught in your child’s class. You can find each grade levels Home Workout below. Just click on the link and the page should load. Feel free to print these off or just review with your child(ren) at home.
If you would like to learn more about the TGFD program, please visit https://toogoodprograms.org/. You can find the Home Workout page for each grade level below.
