The Academy of Accelerated Learning Bully Prevention Month Activities from October 7 through October 14 to help STOMP OUT BULLYING!
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.
Have you ever been bullied? Without using names tell us about it and how it made you feel. Complete paper activity.
Paper Heart Complete the activity in the teacher notes. When you are done ask the following questions: 1. Is it possible to get the wrinkles out? 2.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? 3. If you witness a person being bullied or they tell you they have been bullied how can you help smooth their wrinkles?
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.
EACH OF YOU CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TO STOMP OUT BULLYING!

Monday October 14, First follow teacher notes below 2.Ask students if they have ever been witnesses or been bystanders of bullying. If so, without using names have a few students tell their stories. 3.Ask students to share what they think they can do to help if they see or hear someone being bullied. 4.Ask students to share how a bystander who witnesses the bullying and does nothing can hurt the victim. 5.Ask students to share how a bystander who stands back and laughs can hurt the victim. 6.Ask students to list all the ways a bystander is helping if they: 1. refuse the bullying 2. help the victim report the bullying or 3. they report the bullying themselves.
Is the bystander part of the problem or part of the solution? Say the word “Problem” or “Solution” after your teacher reads each situation below. 1.Johnnie sees Francis getting hit by Samantha every day at recess and he just ignores it. 2.Tamika witnesses Clarence a 1 st grader getting teased by two 3 rd grade boys on the bus. They did it on Monday and now again on Tuesday. She says, “Stop bullying him now!” She then reports the behavior to her teacher. 3.Samuel took Hae Kue’s lunch box and started eating everything in it. Hae Kue said to stop but he kept eating and said, “I don’t have to.” Kelly, Hae Kue’s friend did not feel safe refusing the bullying but she got Hae Kue to come with her after lunch to tell Mr. Rian what had happened. 4.Jack and Julie, two fifth graders, walk around the playground like they own it. They take balls away from kids and kick them across the playground. They run into people on purpose. They use bad language and make fun of people.
