"Confessions of a Former Bully" {Giveaway}: 2012 Back to School Giveaway!

I am so excited to host the School Counselor Blog Back to School Giveaway, which is 10 days of daily giveaways starting September 1st and ending on September 10th!

Today is day two of the School Counselor Blog Back to School Giveaway.

Today's giveaway for the School Counselor Blog Back to School Giveaway is Confessions of a Former Bully by Trudy Ludwig

I fell in love with Confessions of a Former Bully by Trudy Ludwig the first time I read it! I loved this book so much that I even made a bully hat to use with the book.  I wrote a post about making a bully hat using a hat I found in the dollar spot at Target.

Confessions of a Former Bully is written in the perspective of Katie, a student who bullied other students. With the help of her school counselor she chooses to write this journal-style book as a way to help other kids understand bullying. #1 I love any book that mentions school counselors in a positive way, but this book goes way above and beyond just mentioning a school counselor but shares how Katie is helped by the school counselor too! LOVE! Side note: Confessions of a Former Bully is actually a sequel to another great Trudy Ludwig book My Secret Bully.

Confessions of a Former Bully is a fun, kid-friendly read that can be broken down into parts for lessons and bulletin boards! I have used Confessions of a Former Bully with fifth through seventh grade for lessons on different types of bullying, bystanders, what to do if someone is bullied, etc.  I did a lesson on being a Hero Bystander using part of the book. I also thought it would be cool to make a bulletin board using the Katie's "Empowerment Tools" she outlines in the book.

Confessions of a Former Bully is also a great conversation piece to have on display in your office when you aren't actively using it. Students love this book and are pulled in right away by the title.

Confessions of a Former Bully is a great resource for school counselors serving students third grade and up!

For this giveaway I am using Rafflecopter. The giveaway opens September 2, 2012 and will close at 11:59pm EST September 3, 2012.
