Here are the steps we used:
Look them in the eyes,
Smile and say, "Hi!"
Share your name, too.
Say, "Nice to meet you!"
1st grade- We took a break from bullying to talk about feelings. We read The Way I Feel and used the story to practice identifying a variety of feelings. We made each page a guessing game and then identified appropriate ways to express those feelings verbally and non-verbally.
2nd-5th grades- We did our 2nd (of 3) lessons on bullying prevention
2nd & 3rd- talked about and practiced assertively refusing bullying
4th & 5th- talked about bystander responsibility
