To begin, students will sit on the carpet
The teacher will set the tone of the lesson by
o Today we will be learning about what
bullying and hurtful things can do to
The teacher will ask:
o What is bullying?
Students will turn and talk, actively listening to
their partners, for a couple of minutes in groups of
2 or 3 and then give their answers.
The teacher will explain the difference between
bullying and being mean.
o Mean = Purposefully saying or doing
something to hurt someone once (or maybe
Calling someone fat/ugly/stupid
o Bullying = Intentionally aggressive
behavior, repeated over time, that involves
an imbalance of power.
Physical aggression- hitting,
punching, kicking, spitting, tripping,
hair pulling, slamming into objects.
Verbal aggression- threats
Relational aggression- threatening
to not be friends with you if you do

ask and then explain:
o First asking How does the heart look now?
What have our hurtful words done to this
o Being a bully and saying mean things to
others can really hurt them. We took turns
saying hurtful things to the heart and look
what happened. We treated this heart so
poorly that it shriveled up. This is what
happens when you bully and say mean
things to others.
The teacher will then have the students say
something to fix what they have done and as they
give examples, the students will unfold the heart
(one unfold per student).
o Is there anything we can say to fix this
heart? Students will answer. I want you to
take this heart and say something to fix it
and unfold it one time.
When it gets back to the teacher, the teacher will
make the final unfold and ask students:
o How does the heart look now?
o Did we fix this heart?
o The students might answer yes, but this is
not entirely correct
The teacher will explain:
o We did not fix this heart completely
because this heart is still wrinkled.
The students will turn and talk, actively listening
to their partner, in groups of 2 or 3 to discuss this.
(i.e. Why do you think this is?)
Coming back a couple of groups will give answers
and then the teacher will explain:
o Even though we apologize for being mean
or even if we apologize for being bullies we
cannot take back the hurtful things weve
said. Sometimes those hurtful things leave
scars on our hearts. In this case we were
mean and bullies to this heart. Even though
we all apologized for what we said the heart
is still wrinkled, it still has scars.
The teacher will ask students:
o Is it okay for people to do this to others?
Why not?
Explain to students:
o Sometimes people make mistakes and say
Revised 10.3.16
things or do things that they dont mean.
However, we need to think and be smart
because once you say something you cannot
take it back.
The teacher will then ask students to turn and talk,
actively listening to their partners, again (using the
same groups)
o What can we do to try and prevent
bullying from happening?
The teacher will glue on a smaller white heart that
says Before you speak, think and be smart. Its
hard to fix a wrinkled heart.
Students will read what the small heart says with
the teacher.
Students will take a Band-Aid with their name on
it and stick it to the heart in a reminder and
promise to not say hurtful things to others and to
not be bullies.
o Repeat after me I promise, to try my best
to not say hurtful things to others, to not do
hurtful things to others and to not bully
To end the lesson the teacher will remind
o Remember, if you believe someone is
bullying you please report it to someone.
You can report it to me, Ms. Donaldson or
even other teachers in the school.
