"Molly Lou Melon" Mean Teasing Bullying Lesson w 5 video links PBIS Character Ed
This is a lesson based on the book, "Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon" by Patty Lovell. It is a great story about a girl who takes her grandmother’s advice and is proud of the things that make her special.
Amazon describes the book as, “Be yourself like Molly Lou Melon no matter what a bully may do.
Molly Lou Melon is short and clumsy, has buck teeth, and has a voice that sounds like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor. She doesn't mind. Her grandmother has always told her to walk proud, smile big, and sing loud, and she takes that advice to heart.
But then Molly Lou has to start in a new school. A horrible bully picks on her on the very first day, but Molly Lou Melon knows just what to do about that. “
In this lesson, you will be covering the concepts of :
• Bullying Prevention
• Mean Teasing
• When to report to an adult
The lesson includes a variety of videos to reinforce the concept of “no name-calling” and addresses the harm that it causes. It also includes a link to the video of Counselor Bev reading the book, "Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon", aloud. Other video links include a demonstration on how to stand up to bullying, kids talking about how name-calling impacts them, and other related concepts.
This presentation has 17 slides and a link to the book being read aloud.
I would schedule a minimum of 30-45 minutes for this lesson and, depending on your delivery pace and the amount of discussion that you have.
The PowerPoint is customizable and has a master slide that can be copied to make your own slides to personalize the lesson for your students and teaching style. The presentation includes both animations and transitions to hold your students' interest. Make your lesson come alive for your students and help them to connect to the concept in a fun way that will help them to remember the important lessons you need for them to remember.
