Product Description
This lesson introduces the Buddy Bench! I recently got a Buddy Bench for my elementary school and have taught this lesson to every classroom so that we are all on the same page with using it properly. (See details of it's origination at BuddyBench.org). Every student also got to take part in decorating the bench before it went to the playground. This lesson includes a slide presentation that introduces the Buddy Bench and it's special rules, and 16 role play cards so students can practice different scenarios involving the bench. It also includes more suggestions on how to get the most out of the Buddy Bench. I recommend revisiting this lesson here and there throughout the school year so children remember the Buddy Bench rules. I have honestly been shocked at how successful the Buddy Bench has been at my school - the kids just love it! I hope you can have as much success at your school, too :)

Please ask any questions. Thank you!
