My idea came from the NEA's website for Bully Free Starts With Me! I saw this picture on the side and knew I wanted to do something similar!
So I started off my lesson with this picture. It is from Bullying Prevention Now.
I know it is a high school picture, but my 3rd graders understood what was happening. We talked about the picture and how it was displaying bullying.
Then, I used Bullying task cards created by the oh-so-popular Unseen001 from ProTeacher.
She is AMAZING! She creates FREE task cards I use daily! I honestly love her! I need to do another post just on her! You can get her free bully task cards HERE.
Then we watched the Bully Free Song! They LOVED it!
Today, I wrote these two things in the board!
1. How does a bully make you feel?
2. How can I be a good friend?
They used two sheets of blank white paper and write one word or statement in the middle to express their answers for the questions. Then I took their picture!
Tomorrow we will break into groups. I will give each group a location such as the lunch room, recess, bathroom, hallway, specials. They will have to write down bullying situations that happen and friendship situations that can happen.
Then they will create a short skit for each part-bullying and friendship. I will video tape their skit.
Once they are all done, I will use the pictures and videos together to create a Bully Free Starts with ME video! I am super excited and so far everything is going well!
