This year, the 6th, 7th and 8th graders have been participating in the Be A Friend Project. This project takes nominations for children who are victims of bullying. People participating in the project have an opportunity to write encouraging letters to each nominee.
This fits perfectly in with the SEL requirement. My hope is that it will teach empathy and compassion. More importantly, I'm hoping that children who bully will learn to encourage their peers instead of tearing them down.
I'm including the link to the website. There is a video that explains the project, as well as a video introducing the newest recipient and a little about what he has experienced.
If you want to have your students participate by writing letters to Kolby, please let me know. I will keep you posted on when we are mailing our letters. -Ms. Jimmie Baker-
