Detailed Teacher Notes
Bullying behaviors negatively impact a child’s learning and emotional well-being. Research has found that teachers can effectively decrease the number of bullying incidences by raising the awareness of bullying behaviors and directly teaching kids strategies to prevent or to stop it. This kit has lots of activities and information to do just that. The format is very kid friendly and one that kids will actually enjoy.
This kit is packed with everything you need for your classroom to address bully prevention, including focusing on the bully, the victim, and the bystanders. There are lots of different activities like the discussion task cards, which are a great tool to use at morning meetings or you can pick up one or two and use them during transition times. The Bully Challenge Game is one that your kids will love to play. It lets them discuss possible bullying scenarios and how they would react in that situation. I also love the Bullying Survey, which give anonymous but important feedback about bullying, to you as a teacher.
While this packet is definitely beneficial for a single classroom and is a single license purchase, I would really encourage you to share this resource with your principal to see if he/she would like to get a school license at a discounted price (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org). It is so much more powerful if the entire school as a community is teaching these principles at the same time.
One more thing…I really love to use my Entire Year Character Education Kit with this unit. It serves to reinforce all of the positive traits we want the kids to have and does it in a fun way.
