What educators are saying

This made teaching a very tricky and sometimes uncomfortable (BUT VERY IMPORTANT) topic much easier! I used this product with my 4th grade health classes.
This is a great resource for talking to students about a very serious topic in a way that is not overwhelming or scary.


Personal safety is one of the most important lessons to teach but also one of the most difficult. Jayneen Sanders' Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept is a wonderful story for starting a conversation about sexual abuse in a low-threatening way and meeting Erin's Law. This resource is a book companion that allows for meaningful discussion and application of the lessons and messages in the story. It focuses on the idea that some secrets should never be kept.

Included in this resource:

  • Written lesson plan with ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors and CASEL competencies
  • Story discussion question cards that have facts about sexual abuse inside (the story is wonderful but there is still some teaching to be done and this is an engaging way to do it!)
  • Collaborative learning activity to practice determining good vs. bad secrets (18 cards, color and blackline)
  • Follow-up worksheet
