1 The Academy of Accelerated Learning Bully Prevention Month Activities fromOctober 7 through October 14 to helpSTOMP OUT BULLYING!
2 Monday October 7th Bullying. What is it? Bullying is unfair and one sided. It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose.
3 Complete paper activity. Have you ever been bullied? Without using names tell us about it and how it made you feel.Complete paper activity.
4 Paper Heart 1. Is it possible to get the wrinkles out? Complete the activity in the teacher notes. When you are done ask the following questions:1. Is it possible to get the wrinkles out?The wrinkles are what happens to a human being who gets bullied. Ask the students: does anyone have the right to leave wrinkles on another human being? Does anyone have the right to hurt someone else?If you witness a person being bullied or they tell you they have been bullied how can you help smooth their wrinkles?1. Teacher takes the red heart and crumples it up in a ball. Students pass the crumpled heart around the room and are encouraged to squeeze the heart, stomp on the heart, rub the heart on the ground. (maybe give one student an instruction at a time, ie: Jessica step on the heart.”)The heart gets passed back to the teacher and the teacher opens up the heart and places it on the board. Call one student up at a time to get the wrinkles out of the heart, get the dirt off the heart. Etc. Is it possible?
5 We can never 100% get rid of the wrinkles but what could we do to help the student who has been bullied?Give small groups a band aid and have the students work in groups to come up with some ideas to help the student who has been bullied. Write the ideas on the band aids and have the student glue/tape it on the wrinkled heart. Review the ideas and hang the heart in your classroom room.
6 EACH OF YOU CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TO STOMP OUT BULLYING!
