It’s a great SEL lesson on mean or hurtful teasing vs. being funny in ways where everyone has fun. Ever have a group of students doing a lot of roasting or trying to make everyone laugh by being mean? This lesson helps!

What others are saying...

“Thank you so much for this lesson. The book in itself opened up a lot of conversation with my 5th grade classrooms this past week. The follow-up activity was also very well designed and easy to follow and the students really enjoyed working together to decide whether certain scenarios were kind or hurtful.”

“Great lesson! Love the movement activities! Sparked a great conversation with fifth grade about context when it comes to teasing (tone of voice, relationship between the people, etc.) We came to the conclusion that we should always THINK before we speak and that if you can’t say anything nice, you’re not thinking hard enough.”

“Thank you for creating such awesome lessons to use with Trudy Ludwig’s awesome books! The discussion questions and activities were meaningful and easy to implement.”
