This lesson provides an opportunity for students to reflect upon and personally relate to a teacher read-aloud of a narrative story. The lesson could be used with other stories; however, A Bad Case of Stripes allows for a personal connection by having students reflect on similar situations or emotions in their own lives. Acceptable behaviors and ways to prevent bullying in the classroom and school are also discussed.

I really like this lesson... I teach 4th graders and this is when I see students trying to bully others around. I think it is really challenging and great for my students to relate to characters and their characteristics in a story. It would be great at the beginning of the year to talk about bullying, and an attempt to get to know your students.
The lesson plan is good. Needs to improvise with a little plan for below average students as all students in the class are not same. A few activities would help them come up to the level of average atleast. I felt so. Thanks
