Educational Programs for Kids

Grades K-2

This program focuses on children’s interactions and cohesion, discussions include topics of personal space, differences between people, sharing and relationship bullying. We discuss the difference between reporting and “tattling”.

TAB staff leads an interactive time where they use examples and situations from Dr. Cerullo’s children’s books as object lessons. Children are encouraged to partcipate and ask questions.

Grades 3-5

This program begins with a video of a bullying altercation and the thoughts of their peers. The students thoughts on bullying are discussed. We then lead the group in interactive discussion that allows the children to understand and share how bullying makes them feel, define bullying, describe the many types and forms, and the differences between behaviors that can be mistaken for bullying. We discuss consequences of bulling and the nature of reporting bullying in the school. We introduce texting and cyberbullying issues with this age group as well as discuss children with hidden disabilities.
