stop-bullying-hand-poster_500pxOctober is National Bullying Prevention Month, and so we are sharing tips for how you can reduce bullying in your classroom and school. At the KidsCanHaveFun.com website we found some “stop bullying” activities with anti-bullying posters, signs, labels, stickers and worksheets for kids to display at school, home and daycare. And at SimpleK12.com, we found tips for how educators can take charge of controlling and minimizing bullying in your classroom.

It’s Bully Prevention Month, and in the video below from Save Our Schools Wauwatosa, 5th grade student Liberty talks about being bullied and how the school’s social worker helped both Liberty and bully get back on track:

“I work with a social worker because I used to be bulled a lot, but the social worker helped me AND the bully. I talked with her about what was happening with me and this kid who was being very inappropriate. And she wound up helping me and the kid get better, and I think that was really great. I stopped being bullied, and I was playing violin and I was in chorus and it was fun just being able to be my best me.”
