"Simon's Hook" Mean Teasing Bullying READY-TO-USE (no-prep) Lesson w video PBIS Character Ed
This is a READY-TO-USE (no-prep) lesson based on the book, "Simon's Hook" by Karen Burnett. It is a great story about a boy who learns how to deal with mean teasing by listening to his grandmother. Amazon describes it as, "Simon is having a bad day; a bad hair day. First his sister gives him a strange hair cut, then his friends tease him. Simon doesn't know what to do. Lucky for him he runs into Grandma Rose. After listening to his sorrowful story she helps him learn an important life lesson; how to handle teases and put-downs. By comparing teases to fishing hooks she tells him a tale of how fish learned not to bite. With fanciful characters such as Harmony Hippy Fish, Freddie Fang, Max the Mouse Fish and more, Simon learns that he, too, can swim free from the teasing hooks that people toss his way."
In this lesson, you will be covering the concepts of :
• Bullying Prevention
• Mean Teasing
• Telling the difference between mean teasing and fun teasing
• When to report to an adult
• Tattling VS Reporting
The lesson includes 6 role play scenarios for students to practice using the techniques taught. It also includes a link to the video of Counselor Bev reading the book, "Simon's Hook", aloud.
This presentation has 20 slides and a link to the book being read aloud.
At the end of the presentation, there are 6 role play situations that the students can use to demonstrate their understanding of and practice conflict resolution behaviors. I have included one slide that you can create your own scenario to fit your needs.
I would schedule a minimum of 45-60 minutes for this lesson and activity, depending on your delivery pace and the amount of discussion that you have. The video runs over 16 minutes.
The PowerPoint is customizable and has a master slide that can be copied to make your own slides to personalize the lesson for your students and teaching style. 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.
