Today we did a lesson in being bossy!
First we read this book, which I love because my dog is Boss and I often call him Bossy Bear.
When reading this story we stopped at the "oh" page. I used to always fear not reading an entire book, but through a lot of encouragement through my librarian friends I have embraced the idea of not reading the entire book.
So after stopping on this page we discussed what he might be thinking. If the author had added a thought bubble, what would it say? You could give students a page or paper with a thought bubble and have them write it down if you want.
Here are some other books you might like to use:

Here is a very bossy frog that the students can follow along to:
This is a very cute video with a very bossy sister bear:
Follow it up with giving a direction for example- passing the crayons, and have students act it out in a bossy or non bossy way!
What would you do to address bossiness?
