kindness: an anti-dote to bullying

Anti-bullying day is next week.  So, it's time to "think pink".

I prefer to think pro-actively and support kindness, caring and acceptance rather than teach the symptoms of bullying.


Noah and the Whale's song Give a Little Love works perfectly for that.




We watched it.  A few times.  

Then we made our own video with our big buddies.

Their teacher roughed out the story line, a dad who is a professional videographer volunteered his expertise, and we were ready for filming.  









The premiere showing is this Wednesday at the school's Anti-bullying Assembly.  The video is under wraps until them.

The kids were awesome.

And they are pretty excited about being in a video. 

I hope that they remember - have written into their lives - that kindness begets kindness.  

To "give a little love".  





ps  Without the help of our students teachers (who basically took over the classes for the morning)  we could not have filmed our video.  Thanks ladies.

    1. We need to get together in real life sometime - we keep having one degree of separation! It is wonderful having a student teacher - an extra set of eyes and hands in the classroom. Do you have a student teacher this year?

    1. Making the video went a lot smoother than we thought. It did help that we had 2 student teachers who were basically left holding the fort while we facilitated the videoing - and we had a professional videographer. It was fun. Give it a go!
