See below for the lessons that we have done so far this year!
Lesson 1 - "Even Superheroes Have Bad Days"
In this lesson, I reminded the students of my role at school. Then, we talked about how I often see students when they are having bad days. We read the book "Even Superheroes Have Bad Days" that talks about positive choices that we can make when we are having a rough day. Students identified positive and negative choices for tough situations. Then, they colored their own superhero and identified two positive choices they can make to help them feel better when they are having a bad day.
Lesson 2 - "The Bully Blockers Club"
In this lesson, we discussed bullying and how to handle it. We defined the difference between rude (something that happens once accidentally), mean (something that happens once on purpose), and bullying (something that happens over and over again on purpose).
Then, we read the book, "The Bully Blockers Club" by Teresa Bateman. This is a story about a girl who is being constantly picked on by a student in her class. She tries many different strategies, but nothing works until she makes a Bully Blockers Club with her classmates. In this club, they don't put up with bullies and invite everyone to play with them who are being picked on. The club helped to stop the bullying and was a huge success.
After reading the story, the students decided that they wanted to be a part of the Bully Blockers Club. I made a poster for their room with rules for the club (such as invite people to play with you, tell an adult if you can't handle the situation on your own, always be respectful), then all of the students signed the poster.
