Have you guys heard of this book? i first noticed it a few months back on pinterest. I was intrigued, and when I got an amazon gift card at the end of the year I used it to buy this and a few other character building read alouds.
I was blown away by this book. It is just lovely, and I know it will really speak to my kids. Here is the product description from Amazon.
Have you ever seen a bully in action and done nothing about it? The kids at Pete's new school get involved, instead of being bystanders. When Pete begins to behave badly, his classmates teach him about "The Promise". Will Pete decide to shed his bullying habits and make "The Promise"?
In my classroom I plan on going over the promise, reading it together and repeating it several times though out the first week.
I made up these posters (I'm not sure which one I like best yet) I am going to hang it in the room and have all the kids sign it.
This is the promise that the kids in the book make with each other and their teacher.
If you like either one of these you can get them on google docs here
I am also selling this little craftivity I made to go with the book. You can pick it up at my store here! Check it out! I can't to start of the year with this!
So I think I'm going to start a little tradition, I have seen on a few other blogs. The first two people to comment with their email address get it for free! Yay!
