Bullying and Cyber-bullying
"Sometimes it just takes ONE"
Grades K, 1 and 2:
Students will be listening to the story One by Katherine Otoshi.
One is a story about colors and numbers. Blue is a quiet color and Red is a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don’t like what they see and don't know what to do to stop it. When no one speaks up, things get out of hand. Red gets bigger and bigger. Then, One comes along and shows all the colors how to stand up, stand together, and count. Sometimes it just takes one voice to make a difference and make every one count.
After listening to the story, the students will break up into groups. Each group will be assigned a color and they will discuss what they would do if they were that color in the story. They will also talk about what they could do to make a difference and stand up for one another.
Students will go back to their seats and write one sentence on how they can make a difference.
Grades 4 and 5: Cyber-bullying
Students will be reviewing what they have already learned and know
about bullying.What is Bullying?
