It Only Takes 1.

This week in kindergarten we read One by Kathryn Toshi.  After many weeks of lessons on bullying behaviors and awareness, this book illustrates the simplicity of how each of us can be an upstander.

We reviewed the 4 qualifiers of bullying (mean behavior, repetitive, on purpose, trying to control/have power) and elaborated that once someone bullies it doesn't mean they always will.  Standing up for ourselves or someone else in need takes away the power from the situation.  Once one of us stands up, more are likely to join and put an end to the mean behavior.  I then handed out a large "1" to students to decorate how they can be an upstander.  Here is the link to the cute "1" I found.
