If you’re working with a group of children, sadly the chances are high – almost certain – that one or more of them will be placed at risk of abuse throughout their childhood. Some may already be experiencing it. So perhaps the greatest lesson you can teach them is how to respond in such situations. However, we know that can be confronting for you.
That’s where My Underpants RULE! comes in.
With it’s superhero theme, bright colours, magical illustrations and ridiculous rhyme, your students quickly engage in the book’s content. It allows you to ease into an often tricky subject without causing alarm (no dark bits).
The structure of learning a nursery rhyme rule, followed by five different scenario questions and final reinforcement of the rule follows a classic learning model:
- ENGAGEMENT (Why is this important?)
- ESTABLISHMENT (What are we learning?)
- TESTING (What would you do in this situation?)
- REPETITION/REINFORCEMENT (What was that rule again?)
Lesson plans can easily be structured around the content. The only limit is your imagination, and the more times you teach it, the more its lessons solidify for your students. PLUS check out our free teaching resources
