Did you know that October is Bullying Prevention Month? It’s truly one of my favorite topics to discuss with my students. It is so important to work on those preventative measures and teach our students skills at a young age. The earlier you teach them about bullying, the more control you’ll have as they get older.

There are so many different ways to teach your students to be kind and aware of what to do if others aren’t. These activities can range from individual to school-wide. Each of these ideas will educate your students on what bullying is and how to communicate if they experience or witness something troubling. It’s our job to make sure all of our students feel safe and bullying prevention month is the perfect time to do that!

Some topics covered in this episode are:

  • Why it’s so important to teach children about bullying in elementary school

  • Defining what bullying actually is

  • 4 creative ways to teach bullying prevention for all grade levels

  • How to utilize your community resources 

  • Distinguishing between tattling and reporting
