This week, third grade students are continuing their work on bullying awareness by thinking about the role bystanders, the people who see bullying happen, play in resolving a bullying situation. As part of the lesson, they are watching a video from an organization called the NED show (you can watch the video by copying this link and pasting it into your browser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeqQCyQOCPg). The video uses the term "Upstander" to describe people who do something to help a victim of bullying. It recommends four strategies. They are:
1. Be a Buddy
3. Speak Out
4. Tell Someone
Students applied these strategies to different bullying problems, and brainstormed which they might use to help. If you have a moment, consider reviewing these options with your children, and if they see someone being treated unkindly, consider recommending that they try one of these ideas to help.
Thank you for your support.
