~ The Anti-Bullying Quilt ~

Objective: To learn about bullying and what to do when it happens

Grade Level: Kindergarten and up

Preparation:

  • Have scissors, markers, glue, and a long sheet of mural type paper.

Introduction:

Bully Proofing Yourself and OthersName Calling Don't Laugh At Me

  • Learn about bullying. What does it look like? What does it feel like? Read some of the Anti-Bully books in Great Books, such as Say Something and Hey Little Ant.
  • Say kind things about others. Speak up when someone says something unkind or makes a mean joke. Read books like Crow Boy.
  • Make friends with people different from you. Learn how people everywhere share the same feelings by reading books like One World One Day.
  • Be a buddy to someone who needs friends.
  • Include everyone in activities.
  • Get help if you see someone being bullied.
  • At first: Ignore the bully and ask the victim to walk away with you.
  • If that doesn’t work: Go to a parent or teacher
  • If there are no adults around: Gather your friends and stay close to the bullied person. Say this is our friend.
  • If the bully becomes violent: Yell, scream, attract the attention of as many people as you can and move away.
  • If it is too dangerous: Stay away but watch what happens closely so you can be a good witness. Remember names, the place, the time and what the bully said.

Activity: Making the Anti-Bully Quilt

Give each child a 6 by 6 inch square of paper.

On the quilt square, write one thing you can do to stop bullying and draw a picture showing how you will do it.

Join your square with others to create an Anti-Bully Quilt. Taking turns, have each child paste their quilt square on the mural paper. After they attach it, they should share what they wrote.

Extension

Every day revisit the quilt and have students point out examples of behaviors they have shown or seen.
