Teach children aged 4-9 years how to deal with ‘stranger danger’ in (3) easy-to-follow stages which helps them to develop into confident, prepared and capable kids. Print, laminate and use selected pages as story flashcards or durable worksheets with wipe-able markers for a class or individual child, (at school or home). Then present children with their very own personalised ‘Brave Smart and Strong’ Awards when they have successfully complete all three stages – (80 pages). Story Time: Sue’s adventure is told through rhyming couplets and colour illustrations which introduces children to the topic as they wait to see what happens next, when Sue is faced with ‘stranger danger’. Through Story Time children learn about the importance of being aware, basic steps to recognise and deal with 'stranger danger', and of getting the help, and about knowing where to go, what to do and say, and that they really can be ‘BIG’ – even though they are small! 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 reinforce with children 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.
