1st- Bullying Prevention- bystanders. We reviewed recognizing, refusing, and reporting bullying. Then we talked about what to do if we see or hear it happening to someone else. We have lots of bystander POWER that we can use to make the problem better! We can refuse the behavior, choose NOT to join in or laugh, help the student report, be a friend, etc.
2nd- Expressing a variety of feelings appropriately. We talked about how ALL feelings are okay, but that we have to express them and deal with them appropriately. Ex- it's okay to be mad, but not okay to rip up our paper and yell. Instead we can take deep breaths, ask for a break, talk to someone we trust, etc. We read How are you Peeling? and used the feelings in the book to discuss how to express different feelings.
