We found a story of one teacher who struggled with how to teach kids about the harm caused by bullying. Take a moment to read and tell us how you feel:


I decided to stop by the store this morning and buy a couple apples.

During our morning meeting (where we sit in a circle and do spiral lessons), I told my class we were going to try something different and I showed them my two apples and asked them to list the differences and similarities between the two apples.

They were both exactly the same color and shape…one was a little brighter and bigger, but that was literally the only difference.

I then held up the other apple that was only slightly discolored and smaller and I said:

“Gross. This apple looks disgusting!” and dropped it on the ground.

My kids all looked at me like I was INSANE! A couple laughed uncomfortably, but for the most part they thought I had lost my mind.

I then picked it up and passed it to the student sitting beside me and said:

“Isn’t this apple just stupid?! You should say something mean to it and do this!”

Again I modeled dropping it in front of me.

“Now pass it to the person next to you so they can say something mean to the apple, too!”
