This is actually two products in one; Debug! and Don’t Bite the Hook!
Debug is a program that is geared toward K-2 kids that teaches strategies on how to deal with people who are annoying them, not necessarily bullies, but anyone really.
Ignore, Move Away, Talk Friendly, Talk Firmly, and Get Adult Help. Debug is actually an acronym for some unfriendly-kid language so my school counselor teaches the kids these strategies that we just refer to as “Debug”.
Don’t Bite the Hook is for grades 3-5 is modeled after the book, Simon’s Hook by Karen Burnett and deals with strategies for handling bullies. My counselor and I have changed the language from the book in more generalized language, rather than the metaphor of fishing and the ocean. It still applies and I would read the book before displaying the posters. The strategies here include: Ignore, Walk Away, Change the Subject,
Laugh or Joke, Say “thank you”, “So?”, “Whatever.”
Ask, “What?” and “Why?” repeatedly and lastly Get Adult Help.
Included in this product are color posters with all the strategies listed on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper for both Debug and Don’t Bite the Hook as well as black and white. I have also created mini posters that fit four to a page on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.
If you are lucky enough to have a color poster maker, these would be great to display throughout a school.
Thanks for stopping by!
