For their Take Action Project, Troop #3127 made “Bully Booklets” to spread the word about ending bullying in school. Each girl presented the material in the form of a speech or skit to their classmates. Then, they had their class sign the pledge at the back of the booklet. Troop #3127 was able to reach over 200 third grade students! Way to go girls!
Here’s a transcription of what was in the book:
What is Bullying?
There are different kinds of bullying. Here are a few . . .
What do you do if you think you are being bullied?
Do . . .
. . . Tell and adult what has happened.
. . . Stand up tall and proud and say in a strong voice to the bully “Leave me alone.”
. . . Stand up for yourself in a way that is respectful and not mean.
Don’t . . .
. . . Stay home from school because you feel hurt.
. . . Send a mean email or text message back to the bully.
. . . Threaten to get back at the bully.
It’s okay to feel angry after someone has hurt you but when you are mean or threatening back it is not okay. It just fuels the bully’s fire.
How to be friendly and helpful . . .
No one should be bullied for being different. Everyone is different. It’s called being unique. It’s what makes us all so interesting. Stand up for those who are different because the world would be a boring place without them.
I will Stand up to put-downs
Help others who are being bullied
Inform adults when I need to
Never use my cell phone or computer to hurt others
Encourage my friends to stand up against bullying too.
I promise to stand strong, speak out, and be a good friend.
I will let my inner star shine.
