|BULLY FREE® LESSON PLANS--Preschool--(pdf files) accessed and printed at www.bullyfree.com for every teacher and counselor|
Preschool teachers and counselors will find these lesson plans to be a powerful instructional anti-bullying resource with an excellent scope and sequence of thirty-one (31) lesson plans. They purposefully have a heavy focus on anti-bullying content. These interactive and thought provoking lessons were developed by preschool teachers working with Dr. Beane and Linda Beane over a three-year period. The Bully Free Lesson Plans were field-tested in 23 schools. They are currently used by preschools throughout the United States. They were designed to create a supportive, caring, peaceful and safe classroom and school. They promote the Golden Rule, develop empathy, help students who are bullied cope with their feelings and with the bullying, as well as encourage those who bully to stop mistreating others. Many of the lessons are designed to empower bystanders and to teach them to play a major role in preventing and stopping bullying. Almost every lesson has five components: Learner Outcome(s); Essential Question(s); Preparation and Materials; Activities; and Lesson Extension(s). The design of the lessons is based on effective preschool teaching and learning principles. They are so powerful, they change lives, and maximize efforts to change the climate of the school.
