(The Sue Series - Book One)
A ten-page excerpt: pages from Step One, Two and Three of Book One of the Sue Series books (for children, parents, carers and teachers) based on the simple yet fun process I used at home with my very young sons.
Story Time (Step One): Introduces a child to the question of what will Sue do when her mum slips and falls in the garden? Read Sue’s story to teach children the importance of knowing when and how to call for help in an emergency by introducing the character Sue and her story of what being brave, smart and strong really means as she deals with an emergency situation. Help children to understand how they really can be ‘BIG’ and save a life even though they are small with Sue in her exciting adventure told through (12) pages of rhyming couplets and colour illustrations young children can relate to.
Teaching Guide (Step Two): Preparation Guidelines - vital information for helping adults teach and help prepare very young children to know how to identify and deal with an emergency and to understand the reasons why they must do so. Includes practical exercises - necessary, step-by-step guidelines for teaching children what they need to know so they are able to take the physical steps for really taking action; play-acting - crucial role-playing steps (to use in a drama lesson or monthly safety drill) to help children take action and stay calm in an emergency situation and allowing you to know if they can correctly and confidently action and understand what they have been taught throughout the book.
Learning Activities (Step Three): Reinforce what each child has been taught using this (40) pg. set, such as: the number to call; the child’s name, address and phone number; and what it means to be brave, smart and strong using letters and numbers; spelling and vocabulary; shapes and colours; writing and drawing; sorting and matching tasks.
Each book file comes with - 10 detailed checking points for the person teaching the children the steps to be certain that each child knows exactly what action to take and so the adult is confident knowing that the child can remember and follow through each step and take action, quickly and effectively.
