o Can anyone tell me what the word Bullying means?
o Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that
involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the
potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully
others may have serious, lasting problems. (stopbullying.govs definition)
Bystander: Youre not the one being mean: youre the one watching it.
Bully: The individual that is being mean to a kid. Youre the mean one.
Victim: The kid that is being bullied. Someone is being mean to them.
o Bully Behavior Checklist: Handout checklist so students have for future
reference. (Modified from Pinterest/Melissa Rex)
o Talking Points:
Note that many children are involved in bullying now and then, but that
bullying is a serious issue that can have harmful effects on children who
are bulliedand on others in the school environment.
Many children are not convinced that adults are committed to help stop
bullying. Assure students that you and other adult at the school care. Tell
them to report bullying to you so that you can help stop it.
Remind students that everyone at the school has a role to play in helping
to stop bullyingadults and students.

Suppose that we were the Sneetches, how would you feel if you had a
star? And, if you had no star? Why would you feel that way?
What are some things or ways that the Star-Bellied Sneetches acted and or
did that you would have done differently?

o Say hi
o Invite them to parties

Positive Statements: (5 minutes)
Have students give another classmate one positive trait that they
see in them, while the counselor writes each one on the
