Please Make Us Continue To Be a Bully Free Classroom

My students need 3 copies of the book Bullying in School, a large book display cart, 2 crayon holders and a book about self confidence.

My Students

Has anyone ever said anything hurtful to you? My first graders are just learning how to treat one another. I want them to learn how to show kindness and not be a bully.

I teach 24 adorable first graders in an inner city, high crime and high poverty city in Pennsylvania.

Everyone in my school receives free breakfast and free lunch. Once in a while someone in my class says something hurtful to another child and causes them to cry.

My Project

I am requesting 3 copies of the book Bullying in School in order to teach my student to not say hurtful words to others. It breaks my heart when I hear a student tell another child that he is ugly, fat or stupid. I want them to know that this is not an acceptable way to treat one another. I am also requesting a place to display our large bullying books. I want to make my classroom a bully free classroom. I also want my students to feel good about themselves so I am therefore requesting the book, I like being me. Lastly, I am hoping to get containers to store our crayons so we can illustrate stories.

It is crucial that I have a bully free classroom and school.

Being a bully is not an option in my classroom. I want the students to know how to behave respectfully, Please help end bullying in my classroom and in my school by providing us with books and materials on how to be kind.
