Anti-Bullying with Sock Puppets

Mrs. Pollock’s Guidance classes in third and fourth grade at Glenvar have been role playing bullying situations by using the app Sock Puppets.  In Third Grade, they practiced different strategies to get out of a bullying situation.  In Fourth Grade, they practiced the importance of bystanders.  Here are a few of their videos below:

Being a Kind Friend Sock Puppet Shows

Mrs. Pettipiece used Sock Puppets with students in first grade to have them practice friendship skills (sharing, taking turns, being kind and polite).  Students had to share an iPad with a friend to create a puppet show.  In their puppet show, students acted out scenarios, practicing good friendship skills.

Here are a few examples of their work!

Hands are for Helping


Kindergarteners have been learning about using their hands for helping while in Guidance class this month.  First, Mrs. Pettipiece read them the book, Hands Are Not for Hitting by Martine Agassi, PhD.  Then students practiced identifying positive ways to use their hands. To end the lesson, students use the app, Story Kit, to take their own picture and record their voices describing ways they use their hands for helping.


Their final creations are below!  Turn up your volume and take a listen!
