But is it Bullying?
Teaching Positive Relationships To Young Children


June 2005 | 110 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
` Although target at educators working with young children, this book lends itself to use with older primary pupils and, with some careful attention being paid to the issues of `age appropriateness', to a wide range of children with learning difficulties, including those attending special schools' - SENCO Update

`The guidance is clear, practical and teacher-friendly and encapsulates current best primary practice' - TES Extra for Special Needs

Bullying establishes itself as soon as young children begin to engage in social groups - someone is left out… someone is different… someone gets hurt. If you are eager to intervene early to support children aged 5 - 12 years in forming collaborative and empathic relationships, this is the resource to help you do it!

Using research findings from over 400 children's views, the book looks at:

- name-calling

- teasing

- excluding

- physical aggression

- verbal harm

- taking and breaking

Each lesson plan follows the same format with a poster-related discussion, class and follow-up activities, developmental work, research activity and lesson review. The book comes with a CD-ROM to print out the six posters as well as 48 individual illustrations. You will not be disappointed with the ease with which the author's ideas translate into classroom use!

I delivered a workshop to a charity working with children with learning disabilities. I recommended this book to them as it was accessible and gave simple yet excellent advise.
