Pledge to Play Nice! Children's Literature Activities
Use children's literature to start a discussion about bullying and encourage kindness. This anti-bullying kit includes Common Core literature activities for grades K-5 and a classroom poster. The lessons learned from children's books, such as Otis by Loren Long and Llama Llama and the Bully Goat by Anna Dewdney, can help students foster friendships, respond to teasing, and stop name-calling. During each lesson, students will consider how their actions affect others.
