Research since 2008 has been supporting social competence training as the missing link in bullying prevention. The proactive Cool Kind Kid Social Skills, Character Values, and Anti-Bullying Curriculum, Elementary School Edition, is award-winning music for kids and fun characters and activities that engage students as they learn tools for rejecting bullying. This module includes social skills lessons on Rude Behaviors, interacting with Friends, and Presents, Gifts, and Thank-You Notes.
This curriculum overview provides a close look at the content, formatting, and samples of activities in each of the 4 Modules. It includes alignment with Common Core and National Standards, Parent Involvement, and ways that students learn to be “Cool Kind Kids.” As this course redefines “cool” for students, the motivation for bullying is considerably weakened. They learn, “The KIND kid is the COOL kid, not the bully.”
[We recommend this course for grades 2/3 -4/5, since students need to be able to read to do many of the activities.]
Results? Children demonstrating improved behavior, excellent character, positive self-esteem, healthy relationships, and the self-confidence to reject bullying and being bullied
