Learning Activities - (UK) - How to Deal with Emergencies, Bullying and Stranger Danger - '999'

Learning Activities - (UK) - How to Deal with Emergencies, Bullying and Stranger Danger - '999'

A Learning Activities set which helps to teach young children the basic life skills needed to deal with emergencies, bullying and stranger ‘danger’ – (instead of being helpless or the victim). The purpose of this set is to provide parents, carers and teachers with additional resources to help reinforce what they may already be teaching or have already taught, separate to the (3) Sue Series eBooks. Now you can give children a better chance of remembering how to be aware and act, when faced with a difficult or dangerous situation. Print selected curriculum-friendly activity pages and check lists to use at home or for a whole class. Laminate selected pages for durability and use markers and wipe clean, or use individual pages to create flash cards, posters or reminders – (105 pages).The worksheets help children to remember how to recognise an emergency; who the people are who will help them; how to recognise a ‘nine’; how many ‘nines’ they need to press; how many ‘three’ is; their name, address and phone number; what it really means to be brave, smart and strong – and to be ‘BIG’; and helps them to remember the three important questions they need to answer so they know whether to take action and get the help, (by using the special numbers: 9-9-9).These worksheets help to reinforce with children to know when there is or is not a bullying situation; the signs that someone is being bullied or is a bully; what can happen to a child being bullied (or who is a bully); the reasons why it is important to tell someone about a bullying incident and tell on someone who is bullying; to remember that bullying can happen anywhere; and what to do when someone else is being bullied. These activities also help to install in children how to recognise ‘stranger danger’ and steps for taking action. Children can learn and remember who they are allowed to be with and where they are allowed to go; what to say and not say to a ‘stranger’; what to do to get away from a 'stranger'; who can help if a ‘stranger’ approaches them; and the importance of the special number: ‘999’ (Nine-Nine-Nine). They also learn how to know if someone else is involved a 'stranger danger' situation and the steps that should be taken to help that person. Select individual pages to meet different learning needs by choosing what area to work on, i.e.: children can work with shapes and colours while they learn about the roles of special people in our communities. Other curriculum related areas are: Letters and numbers, spelling and vocabulary, shapes and colours, writing and drawing, sorting and matching, community and social responsibilities, education, safety and well-being, drama and self-expression.

Numbers to Know - How to Teach Children to Deal with Emergencies - '911'

Numbers to Know - How to Teach Children to Deal with Emergencies - '911'

‘Numbers to know’ is made up of (3) steps which teaches children aged 4-9 yrs. to make the special ‘911’ (Nine-One-One) call, if faced with an emergency. Sue Series curriculum-friendly printable files help to enhance the learning-to-read and decision-making processes and reinforce lessons through repetition, revision and completing the easy-to-follow stages which help to develop a more confident, prepared and capable child. (78 pages)Step One – Story Time: When Sue's adventure has been read, children have listened to a story at their level which introduces them to the topic, helps them to become familiar with the lessons in the story, demonstrates and teaches them in a fun and simple way the basic steps to knowing how to recognise and deal with an emergency and that they really can be ‘BIG’. Children learn about the importance of knowing when and how to correctly use the numbers: 9-1-1 and how to be brave, smart and strong – like Sue in the story! Step Two – Teaching Guide: The corresponding Teaching Guide has preparation guidelines to follow so adults know and understand what they teach from the detailed information which helps to prepare children prior to completing the Practical Exercises and Play-acting. Included are instructions for the Practical Exercises and Play-acting which enable children to deal with emergencies, automatically and confidently. Follow the preparation guidelines and instructions to teach children and know what to do as you teach, then work through the exercises to reinforce what has already been taught. Use the Check List to check off each step a child should remember so you are certain that each child can correctly use the numbers: 9-1-1 (nine-one-one).Step Three – Learning Activities: The Learning Activities further reinforce what has been taught from the previous steps and help children to remember how to recognise an emergency; who will help them; how to recognise a ‘nine’ and ‘one’; how many ‘nines’ and ‘ones’ they must press; how many ‘three’ is; their name, address and phone number; what it really means to be brave, smart and strong – and to be ‘BIG’; and to remember the (3) important questions they need to answer to help them know whether to act.Select pages to meet different learning needs by choosing an area to work on, i.e.: children can work with shapes and colours while they learn the roles of special people in our communities. Print, laminate and use as durable worksheets with wipe-able markers for a class or individual child, and as personalised Brave Smart and Strong Awards to present to those children, who successfully complete the three vital steps.Helping Little Kids be BIG - by Teaching Children to be Brave, Smart and Strong!

They also learn how a ‘stranger’ can appear out of no-where and quickly take control. Teaching Guide: Step-by-step preparation guidelines and information for parents, carers and teachers to follow and discuss with children, prior to completing the Practical Exercises and Check Lists. Children learn the meaning of words such as ‘danger’, 'intuition' and 'sense' so they are aware and understand and know the meaning of ‘feeling uncomfortable’ and why the power of saying ‘NO’ can help to avoid a threat from a 'stranger’ or child predator. They also learn the signs that someone is using tricks or threats to influence them and how there are special places they can go to and special people they can be with to stay safe. Instructions include crucial role-playing steps to use in regular drama lessons or safety drills which demonstrate to children what to say and what to do and helps them to remember the steps and build their inner strength – so they can take action and stay calm in a 'stranger danger' situation. Using the Check List included allows you to know if a child can really take action and understand what the child has been taught throughout the steps. Learning Activities: Curriculum friendly worksheets to help children know how to recognise ‘stranger danger’ and the steps to take and how to be brave, smart and strong so each step is embedded in their minds and proven to be perfected. These activities reinforce who they can be with and where they can go; what to say and not say to a ‘stranger’; what to do to get away from a 'stranger'; and who can help, if they are approached by a ‘stranger’. They also learn to recognise signs to look for in a child involved in a ‘stranger danger' situation, steps they need to take to help that child and about the affects of judgement, blame and secrecy.

Learning Activities - (AUS) - How to Deal with Emergencies, Bullying and Stranger Danger - '000'

A Learning Activities set which helps to teach young children the basic life skills needed to deal with emergencies, bullying and stranger ‘danger’ – (instead of being helpless or the victim). The purpose of this set is to provide parents, carers and teachers with additional resources to help reinforce what they may already be teaching or have already taught, separate to the (3) Sue Series eBooks. Now you can give children a better chance of remembering how to be aware and act, when faced with a difficult or dangerous situation. Print selected curriculum-friendly activity pages and check lists to use at home or for a whole class. Laminate selected pages for durability and use markers and wipe clean, or use individual pages to create flash cards, posters or reminders – (105 pages).The worksheets help children to remember how to recognise an emergency; who the people are who will help them; how to recognise a ‘zero’; how many ‘zeros’ they need to press; how many ‘three’ is; their name, address and phone number; what it really means to be brave, smart and strong – and to be ‘BIG’; and helps them to remember the three important questions they need to answer so they know whether to take action and get the help, (by using the special numbers: 0-0-0).These worksheets help to reinforce with children to know when there is or is not a bullying situation; the signs that someone is being bullied or is a bully; what can happen to a child being bullied (or who is a bully); the reasons why it is important to tell someone about a bullying incident and tell on someone who is bullying; to remember that bullying can happen anywhere; and what to do when someone else is being bullied. These activities also help to install in children how to recognise ‘stranger danger’ and steps for taking action. Children can learn and remember who they are allowed to be with and where they are allowed to go; what to say and not say to a ‘stranger’; what to do to get away from a 'stranger'; who can help if a ‘stranger’ approaches them; and the importance of the special number: ‘000’ (Triple Zero). They also learn how to know if someone else is involved a 'stranger danger' situation and the steps that should be taken to help that person. Select individual pages to meet different learning needs by choosing what area to work on, i.e.: children can work with shapes and colours while they learn about the roles of special people in our communities. Other curriculum related areas are: Letters and numbers, spelling and vocabulary, shapes and colours, writing and drawing, sorting and matching, community and social responsibilities, education, safety and well-being, drama and self-expression.
