Synopsis

Speak Up and Get Along! Learn the Mighty Might, Thought Chop, and More Tools to Make Friends, Stop Teasing, and Feel Good About Yourself by Scott Cooper

Speak Up and Get Along! If getting along were easy, everyone would do it. No one would fight, argue, bully, or tease. We'd all know how to make and keep friends. And we'd feel a lot better about ourselves. But getting along isn't easy. In fact, it can be really HARD. Wouldn't it be great to have a toolbox of ways to get along with others? You could reach in and pull out words and ideas to try at school, at home, in your neighborhood, or wherever you're with other people. This book is your toolbox. Look inside to find...the Power I - a way to tell others what you think, what you want, and how you feel...the Sherlock Holmes - a way to start, join, or continue a conversation...the Coin Toss - a way to quickly resolve a small conflict before it gets big...the Squeaky Wheel - a way to get what you need...the Mighty Might - a way to end teasing...the But Twist - a way to talk back to negative thoughts * the Balloon Belly - a way to feel calm and relaxed and more - 21 cool tools in all True-to-life stories show the tools in action. Ways to Say It sections suggest words and phrases you can use. Practice Time activities make you a pro. There's a Note to Adults you can share with your parents and teachers, and resources for when you want to know more. So open your toolbox. Reach right in. And start speaking up and getting along...Scott Cooper is an anti-bullying advocate. He has worked as a youth volunteer, basketball coach, and school board president. He also has teaching experience, and he knows a lot about birds.
