Grades K-5. Features a meaningful, cleverly illustrated story followed by six lesson plans. Helps students realize that many everyday behaviors that seem harmless and inconsequential are really bullying behaviors.

Includes a pre/posttest, games, discussion questions, reproducible worksheets, and supplementary activities.

Six lessons which are applicable for grades 3-5 that focus on the topics of choosing sides, exclusion, friendship fears, and changing negative behavior. Each lesson has step-by-step presentation directions, additional stories, and supplementary activities. Includes a pre/post test.

Lesson 1 includes a story in which each page communicates a significant message.

“I thought a bully was someone who sent viruses through a computer. I didn’t know I was a bully when I wrote bad things about you on the computer.”
“I thought a bully was someone who laughed and teased you. I didn’t know I was a bully if I laughed when others made fun of you.”

This cleverly-illustrated story, which can be reproduced for children, is followed by six lesson plans that give children more experience in recognizing subtle bullying behaviors. These lesson topics include:

  • Exclusion
  • Friendship Bullying
  • Cyberbullying

Lessons 2-5 include additional stories that focus on the topic being presented, discussion questions, and activities. Lesson 6 features bullying centers, allowing students to experience a variety of techniques that will help them recognize and further comprehend the bullying behaviors taught in earlier lessons.

Reproducible supplementary activity sheets and suggestions for presenting the program to Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5 are also included.
