I had the chance to watch Fat Boy Chronicles today and wonder if kids really treat other kids like they treated Jimmy. I loved the way Sable stepped up and defended Jimmy when he was getting bullied.
We really need to get kids to speak up when they are bullied. As a teacher, I know I will be more alert for bullying when near the older students in the school. I rarely see bullying in first grade. What age have you noticed bullying? What was the child being bullied for?
I have had students rough playing on the playground but not targeting the same student each time. I have never witnessed it myself as a kid or as a teacher. We need to continue making sure ALL students feel safe in school! They need to reach their full potential without any bullying!!
