As our students grow older, learning self-management techniques related to Bullying and Conflict continues to be important!
Grade 4 and 5 learners are seeing what encompasses “Bullying” (see previous blog post), as well as understanding it can involve Social, Physical, or Verbal actions. Additionally, Cyberbullying (any bullying that takes place electronically or through social media) is explored. Finally, students learn about what to do when Bullying is occurring, as well as how to manage themselves when in conflict with friends/peers so that it doesn’t turn into a bigger problem.
Then, students engage in a large group “test” to assess their learning and leave space for questions to be answered by Dr. K! This can be a confusing topic for many students, so much discussion time is left for students who are curious about certain situations and how to handle it.
