Storytime with Principal Tumilty

October Read aloud

Juice Box Bully
Is it Bullying?

The month of October Mrs. Tumilty read The Juice Box Bully: Empowering Kids to Stand Up for Others by Bob Sornson and Maria Dismondy.  This book addressed how one student who is new to a school was being a bully.  The students wouldn't let him bully them and they stood up to him.  The book also addresses problem solving. The conversations during the grade level read alouds were also an opportunity to discuss the difference between Conflicts and Bullying.  Students talked about how to solve conflicts by using words to say how they feel and how they would like someone to stop.  The conversations also steered us in addressing the differences between if someone is being rude, mean or if they are bullying.

Monthly Read Alouds at Creekside will focus on different themes and topics for our school to discuss together.
