My Good (Full Residency) 

Developmental, consecutive grade anti-bully concepts.

K-5, 7–Day Residency, 45-60 min. sessions

 

Bullying is a multifaceted problem that focuses on the bully saying, “My bad.” The idea behind the Friends & Choices, Anti-Bully Anchors program is to switch the focus to positive behaviors that prevent bullying and saying, “My Good!” instead. This seven-day residency addresses six key anti-bully themes developmentally across grades K–5. The program provides each grade level with an anti-bully focus concept that is presented as an anchor lesson at the beginning of the year and then reinforced with a series of follow-up lessons and activities during the rest of the year. This provides children who are struggling with bullying behavior the opportunity to rethink, refocus, and redeem themselves.
