Mrs. Washington from Battle Creek MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bully Free for Eternity!

My students need books and classroom materials like games that help them learn about their own feelings and the feelings of others in a non-confrontational way.

My Students

Have you ever been angry and didn't know why or what to do about it? Have you ever been bullied...or THE bully? My first grade students are learning about social skills and emotions, including the ever present quest to stop bullying in our school.

My first grade students come from a historically under-served neighborhood.

These students are typically seen as likely to fail, but they don't know that. They come to school every day and try hard and work to succeed. They do everything they need to and more. The barrier to their success is understanding that the social skills needed at school, at home, and in their neighborhood are often very different.

My Project

Because my students are wonderful readers, I have requested many books that relate to feelings and emotions and how to deal with them. We will use these books to start discussions and even literature circles based on bullying and other (non) social skills. Using the anti-bullying game, students will be able to put themselves in the mindset of the bully, the victim, and the bystander, which will lead them to make good choices when they are actually in those situations. Last, I included tangible rewards (pencils and certificates) to reward students who make good choices.

Through this project my students will have resources that they can refer to again and again.

They will learn what to do when faced with a bullying situation. They will also become more confident and able to stand up for others who may need it.
