The very popular Chicken Soup for the Soul book series brand has now launched Chicken Soup for the Soul Hallway Heros, a literacy-based anti-bullying program for grades 1-6, and IntegraSource is your local contact.
Chicken Soup for the Soul Hallway Heroes is a proactive anti-bullying program with literacy based lessons that promote the social-emotional skills of self awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. The goal of the program is to change the school environment in a positive way and to eliminate or greatly reduce bullying behavior from ever happening – both inside and outside the classroom. Each classroom package contains 26 copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be (real life narratives primarily written by students), Teacher Guide & Lesson Plans, 25 Student Journals, and subsidized online library access. Additionally, an Administrator Implementation Guide is provided for each school or district.
The 12 unique lesson plans for each grade 1-6 include pre-reading activity and discussion, reading a real-life story from Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be the Best You Can Be, classroom discussion after reading, students answering questions in their student journals about the story and how it pertains to their experiences and responding to prompts in the student journal including open-ended writing, literal and critical thinking questions, and personal narratives.
The program is easily incorporated into language arts blocks and excellent to use in supplemental reading time.
