I received The Bully-Free Classroom book around the holiday break. It is such a great resource! It has everything you could imagine in it about bullying and how to combat bullying your school. There are helpful lists and activities.
The best part about the current edition of The Bully-Free Classroom is that a CD-ROM comes with it! It has reproducible handouts, activities, customizable awards and certificates. The The Bully-Free Classroom CD-ROM makes using the materials from the book so convenient! It is so much easier to use the The Bully-Free Classroom book CD-ROM and print than to use the book to make copies. The Bully-Free Classroom book has materials that are great to use as a supplement to or in conjunction with my "Peacemakers" lessons.
I also got the book Bully-Free Bulletin Boards, Posters, and Banners. It has great ideas and images of bulletin boards. Bully-Free Bulletin Boards, Posters, and Banners even includes templates that you can use. It really takes the work out of thinking up ideas for bulletin boards. Bully-Free Bulletin Boards, Posters, and Banners includes ideas specifically for elementary and ideas specifically for middle school.
I will be writing more about The Bully-Free Classroom book and Bully-Free Bulletin Boards, Posters, and Banner in the coming weeks. I plan on profiling how I am using the The Bully-Free Classroom book and will provide pictures of the bulletin boards I create using Bully-Free Bulletin Boards, Posters, and Banners.
