      An excellent idea for teaching the message of bullying. I usually introduce my school year with the book "Chrysanthemum" and make a giant heart with her name on it. I then do this same activity when post reviewing the book with students. I leave it posted in the classroom all room for reference when needed.

      We need our teacher to do this. There has been a lot of bullying and teasing going on at our school, but the teachers don't do anything even though they know it is going on. No one stands up for one another and even after all the bullying lessons we learn- people still bully. Why can't everyone just be nice?!?

      A lesson a teacher did on the first day of school in conjunction with teaching classroom rules/expectations. She was afraid that my jr high kids would think it was stupid- but they liked it and actually had kids with tears in their eyes because of this lesson. Already seen a change in attitudes

    This lesson plan is SERIOUSLY AMAZING.How to erase meanness. This is relevant no matter the grade level, and it's so hard to find a way to teach these lessons effectively. Such a GREAT idea!

    I just died a little and went to teacher heaven. The website it links to is AH-MAH-ZING!

    BULLYING LESSON: A teacher in NY had ichildren take a piece of paper, crumple it up and stamp on it without ripping it. Then she had them smooth it out and look at how scarred it was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. She explained that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That's what happens when a child bullys another child.

    A prayer for the first day of school (and for every school day after that).

    Lesson = Self-Control. This guy is great!

    Sheet for when kids come in after play stressed about 'issues' that have happened outside. Good to keep as a record, for giving some 'cool down' time, getting all sides of the story and also allows teaching to continue uninterrupted, 'til you're ready to deal with it
