WITS Books and Lesson Plans

The WITS books (We call them “WITS PICKS”) have each been selected because they deal with peer conflict resolution, building healthy relationships, or social emotional learning.  No child is labeled a bully in these books, but they can help you to discuss and prevent bullying! Pick a book from one of several categories by clicking on the cover or title.

The WITS books lesson plans are organized in to grades 1 to 3 (WITS PRIMARY) and grades 4 to 6 (WITS LEADS). Each lesson plan can be downloaded.. Each one was written in by an experienced teacher-librarian, a teacher technology expert, and a developmental psychologist!   

ADD YOUR CREATIVITY AND ENTHUSIASM! We aimed to create flexible resources (lesson plans) that teachers could build on with their own expertise and that would not require them to follow a script.  We also integrate lessons with familiar curriculum objectives. In other words, we included both social emotional learning that prevents peer victimization and also address curriculum objectives in health and personal planning, social responsibility, language arts, elementary mathematics, culture and history, or social sciences.

These are rich resources designed for anyone who loves children’s literature.
