This resource uses the movie, Spookley the Square Pumpkin, to spark conversation and reinforce key concepts. You can either buy the movie or stream it for free from the website at www.pacer.org/bullying/classroom/elementary/spookley/. Each lesson is paired with a 5-10 minute segment that you watch then discuss that part in the lesson. From experience, most students have seen the movie so watching it a little at a time is not a big deal. However, you could also show the movie at once and then use the 5-10 minute segments to refresh their memory or just talk about it during the lessons. You will find this resource has many things you could do in part or in whole to teach the concepts.

Each lesson is aligned with the essential components of teaching bullying prevention to students. This includes:

  • Empathy Skills
  • Recognizing Bullying
  • Reporting Bullying
  • Refusing Bullying

Every Lesson Includes:

  • Student Objectives
  • Alignment to CASEL Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Goals, Learning Standards, and Benchmarks.
  • Key Vocabulary (with visuals to help teach)
  • Fully Scripted with Discussion Questions and Checks for Understanding
  • Hands-On Activity or Printable for Each Lesson
