4th Grade


During our August guidance lesson, we used a PowerPoint to learn more about the school counseling program and being successful at RMIS.


Lesson 1- We listened to the story, The New Kid by Katie Couric and discussed treating everyone with respect and including everyone.

Lesson 2- We used the Pixar animated short, For the Birds to learn about common friendship problems and what to do instead.


In October, we focused on what bullying is, what it is not, and the procedures for how to handle someone bothering you and someone bullying you.

Definition: Bullying is done over and over by the same person on purpose to hurt your feelings of your body.

If someone is bothering you, STOP, WALK, and TALK

If someone is bullying you or someone else, REPORT

Always try to be an UPSTANDER for other kids.  This is the website we used for being an Upstander: http://www.thenedshow.com/preventing-bullying-lesson-plans.html

We also used http://staging.pacerkidsagainstbullying.org/kab/what-is-bullying/learning-with-the-club-crew/ to evaluate the actions of the bully, victim, bystander, and upstander.
