  • Written lesson plan aligned to ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors and CASEL Competencies
  • Three movement based activities (spectrum responses, mix-pair-share, and converstations)
  • Discussion prompts and skill-based questions to cover all the different themes in the story

“This resource was very well planned out and the activities included were great for discussing the book. It also got students up and moving a little bit (of course while remaining socially distanced) :)”

“I used this during my weekly school counseling visit to the 5th grade classroom. We read three of Trudy Ludwig’s books over a three week period and did activities around each one (Trouble Talk, Better Than You and Sorry). The kids really enjoyed the discussions and were engaged the whole time.”

“I love that your resources always have many ways to use them! I’m lining up this lesson with what we have been talking about- bullying, name calling/labeling, and body language. Fits perfectly!”
