4th grade- Bullying. We reviewed the importance of being respectful of others' ideas and opinions. We took a quiz about bullying using SENTEOS (see picture and description below). As we reviewed our responses we talked about different types of bullying (physical, social/emotional-excluding, spreading rumors, demeaning, etc.), why bullying is NOT okay, and what to do if it happens to you or you see it happening to someone else. We defined bullying as: Unkind behavior toward a person over and over on purpose.
5th grade- Diversity/Positive Self Concept. We talked about how everyone is different, but each of us have equal value!! We brainstormed things that cause us to think less of ourselves, but how even when we are "crumpled" we are still worth the same! We talked about things we can say and do to protect our self-concept and how others think about themselves, too. We focused on being respectful to ALL people.
All my classes had an underlying theme of respect for others this week. :)
