Bullying Empathy Friendship Lesson w 2 Video links based on "Those Shoes"
This PowerPoint presentation is a great way to teach bullying prevention, empathy, and friendship / interpersonal skills to your elementary kids. It is based on the book, "Those Shoes" and includes a link to an 8 minute video of the book being read.
The Amazon summary of the book is as follows: "‘All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. Though Jeremy’s grandma says they don’t have room for "want," just "need," when his old shoes fall apart at school, he is more determined than ever to have those shoes, even a thrift-shop pair that are much too small. But sore feet aren’t much fun, and Jeremy soon sees that the things he has — warm boots, a loving grandma, and the chance to help a friend — are worth more than the things he wants. “
This presentation has 18 slides and includes a link to a second 4-minute video that helps students to understand compassion and empathy for others.
Two activities and a worksheet are included in the presentation. If you wish, you can purchase the worksheet separately ($1) if you don't like to copy and paste.
I would schedule 30-45 minutes for this lesson, depending on how much discussion you include in your presentation.
The PowerPoint is customizable allow you to create the most appropriate version for each grade level. The presentation includes both animations and transitions to hold your students' interest. Make your lesson come alive for your students and help them to connect to the concept in a fun way that will help them to remember the important lessons you need for them to remember.
