Teacher directed –
Today in KOS we are learning about different types of touch – touch we like, touch that hurts and we want to stop, and confusing touch that we want to stop.
Ask for examples of touch we like, such as hugs – though some children DON’T like hugs.
Ask for example soft touch that hurts and we want to stop.
Reinforce adults in playground and saying ‘STOP! I don’t like that!’.
Present the following situations…
Ask children how these situations would make them feel and what they should do about it:
- An adult that you don’t know comes up and takes your hand.
- Someone at school pulls your hair.
- The babysitter sits very close to you and puts their arms around you.
- Someone hugs you too tight and gives you a sloppy kiss.
