This week, we are continuing our work on bullying awareness in second grade. Last week, students reviewed the definition of bullying and learned that anyone, even usually kind people, can make a series of unexpected choices and that repeated mean behavior toward another person is bullying.
For this lesson, students watched a Brain Pop Jr. video on bullying. It reviews the definition of bullying, what to do if you think you are being bullied, bullying on the internet, and how to help if you see someone else being bullied. You can find the video by clicking on this link: http://s4.brainpopjr.com/health/relationships/bullying/.
Finally, students reviewed the different roles people can play in a bullying situation. They include:
Bully: Person dong the unexpected behaviors
Victim: Target of the unexpected behaviors
Bystanders: People who see the bullying happen
Eggers: Bystanders who encourage the bullying by laughing, making jokes, or even simply watching
Next time we meet, we will spend time thinking about safe choices a bystander can make to help stop bullying.
