Let's talk about bullies...and bullying behaviors.  A recent study shows that 1 out of 3 young people have been bullied by a friend.  Yes, a friend!  Sometimes you think if a friend is doing it, it must be "OK".  If you don't deal with bullying, it can make you 1) Nervous 2) Perform less at school 3)Dread going to school 4) Not sleep 5) Stop engaging in fun activities you once loved and many others.  If you have not experienced personal bullying, you have witnessed it already in your years of school.  I want you to be prepared for 5th grade and have a strong plan to deal with bullying behaviors.  You can always reach out to me, even though you will be gone, and/or your 5th grade school counselor, parents, close teachers, and friends who give good advice.  Bullying is NOT your fault, you must deal with it, and you must remember the characteristics of being a good friend and characteristics that show you when a "friend" is being more like a "bully".  
Draw a picture of a heart on a piece of paper.  draw a circle around the heart.  Then, draw another circle around the first circle. Draw a third circle around the circles (it should look like a bull's eye with a heart in the middle).  Closest to the heart in the space, write your best, closest friends that you have.  This could be one or more than 10.  In the next space, write some friends you have that are not that close but still ones you consider friends.  Then, in the most outer space, write people who you are in classes with or around, but do not consider your friends.  Only for your eyes and thoughts, think about what your closest people have that make you like them and then for the ones furthest away from the heart, think about those characteristics that make you keep your distance.  

1)  Write to me 1 Sunshine and 1 Cloud that you are dealing with (sunshine being happy/positive and cloud being something that is bothering, stressful,
or tricky)
2) . It is okay to say no to others, and it is okay for them to say no to you. Negative emotions like guilt and remorse can be reasons not to go along with peer pressure.
**Watch this video on this website:   It includes the STEPS to problem solving.    Demonstrate using assertiveness skills to resist peer pressure .  Demonstrate using the Problem-Solving Steps to figure out ways to resist peer pressure.  Write a response to be of what you've learned to me.

Keep your workspace the same when you are at home. Do not try to do your homework in front of the television or busy areas in your home. Find a quiet, alone spot so you can do your best and really focus. This is part of being a good student and future employee!
