Extensions and Adaptations
The students can create a “Caught Ya” being respectful box, or a box for students all over school to submit situations where they witnessed or were a part of bullying or disrespect.
Teachers may type their posters, some students could draw what it means to “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully,” some may talk as the teacher or another student writes. A video by the K-3 grades could be done for the younger K-2 grades to watch before they complete this activity (on Buddy Day as we have at Lincoln Elementary, where a 5th grade student may work with a first grade student on this activity).
This also could be made to challenge students and could be turned into a communication arts writing project. This is a great lesson to make alternate ways available for your struggling students as well (typing, drawing or acting out for you orally) what it means to “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully.”
