Say ‘No’ to Strangers – How to Teach Children to Deal with Stranger Danger
(The Sue Series – Book Three)
A ten-page excerpt: pages from Step One, Two and Three of Book Three of the (80) page Sue Series book file (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): What will Sue do when a stranger approaches her at home? Read Sue’s story to teach children the importance of knowing when and how to deal with ‘stranger danger’. Introduce the character Sue and her story of what being brave, smart and strong really means as she deals with a ‘stranger danger’ situation and help children to understand how they really can be ‘BIG’ and help them-self or someone else, even though they are small – in Sue’s exciting adventure told through (12) pages of rhyming couplets and colour illustrations that young children can relate to.
Teaching Guide (Step Two): Preparation guidelines and vital information for helping adults teach and help prepare very young children to know how to identify and deal with ‘stranger danger’ and to understand the reasons why they must do so. Includes practical exercises and 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; and play-acting and crucial role-playing steps (to use in drama lessons or monthly safety drills) to help children take action and stay calm in a ‘stranger danger’ situation and allowing you to know if they can correctly 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 of worksheets. Simply print, laminate and use with markers to wipe clean. Now you can reinforce with children who they are allowed to be with and where they are allowed to go; what to say and not say to a stranger; what to do to get away from a 'stranger'; and who can help, if a ‘stranger’ approaches them. A child will also learn how to know if someone else is involved a 'stranger danger' situation and the steps that should be taken to help that person.
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 effectively.
