The Recess Queen is a great book to use at the beginning of the year to talk about friendship, bullying, and appropriate recess behaviors. If you don't have this book, you should add it to your library. It's great!
This product includes activities that go along with the common core and teach important social concepts. Included are the following:
-Retelling by answering who, what, where, how why questions
-Compare/contrast venn diagram of the main characters
-Recess role play- case studies to discuss what students would do in certain situations
-The Caring Crown-template for a crown students can wear to be a King or Queen of kindness, and discussion ideas
-Reflection writing page (a time when I was a kind kid)
-Recess Rules posters (blank to write your own rules) in color and BW
-Anchor chart/poster about ideas of what students can do if there is trouble.
These activities are great for back to school, to teach appropriate behaviors at the beginning of the year.
