I know my explanation is a little foggy on what the actual book COVERS…so I video taped my students to show you exactly what we have been working on. Now…I am the one in some of the videos doing the teasing, and beforehand, each of my students knows that I don't REALLY feel this way about them…that we are practicing so that if someone really DOES say something similar they know what to do!
Sit back, relax, and let my five and six year olds teach you some strategies for dealing with teasing and put-downs!
(MAKE SURE TO TURN UP YOUR VOLUME!!)
I am having trouble uploading my other videos where my students are holding the fishing pole and role playing. Please visit my Kindergarten Facebook page to view those "Simon's Hook" videos!!
Aren't they amazing teachers? I think I have a couple actors on my hands. :) These are just a couple examples of our problem solving strategies.
The book teaches us to:
1. agree with the person
2. change the subject
3. do nothing (ignore)
4. walk away
5. laugh (don't let them anger you)
These are all ways to NOT BITE!
