My students need the book "Bullying in Schools" as well as hands-on Science magnet centers that reinforce positive ways to collaborate with their classmates.
How can we best stop the cycle of bullying? One great way is to educate and empower students with the knowledge that will help them combat bullying.
I teach second grade to a wonderful group of students who are out-going and hard working.
We spend much of our day focusing on learning the important subject areas and work hard at being successful academically. But what happens to them outside the four walls of my classroom? It is becoming clear that even at this young, sweet age, bullying is evident. Unfortunately, they pick up on bad habits from their classmates, siblings and from their neighbors. Many of them are the victims and others are the perpetrators. This cycle can stop with the right intervention and classroom materials.
I am requesting the book "Bullying in Schools" to help educate my students on the characteristics of a bully and strategies to prevent bullying. The Science magnet centers, activities and experiments will promote cooperative learning to practice teamwork skills. These centers are a wonderful platform for all students to practice their anti-bullying techniques. Students will develop positive experiences and appreciation for each other as they research together. By working together students will get to know one another on a deeper level and develop stronger relationships. This collaboration will help create a classroom culture of respect that does not tolerate any form of bullying. Students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate social skills that will result in stronger ties both inside and outside of the classroom.
This project will assist in teaching my students character skills that will last a lifetime.
We need to start standing up to bullies, and it all begins with knowledge. Please help my students reach the goal of a "bully-free zone" at school.
