1st- We took a week off from bullying to talk about feelings. We reviewed the basic four feelings and then played a guessing game with some of the more complicated emotions. We discussed appropriate ways to express those feelings. I talked a little bit about how my job is to help kids with big feelings and did a little magic trick for them! :)
2nd- Bullying Prevention lesson 2-- Last lesson we talked about recognizing and reporting bullying. This lesson we discussed refusing assertively. We talked about the difference between aggressive, passive, and assertive responses and what an appropriate response would sound like (ex: "Stop. I don't like that." in a firm, but respectful voice).
