TEKS: Reading K.5(D); 1.6(D); 2.6(D); 3.6(D); 4.6(D); 5.6(D)
To learn about standing up for themselves and being assertive, students will create their Stand Up SuperBuddy alter ego. Students will think about how they can stand up for what is right and make a positive impact on the world around them.
Teacher: “Being assertive means to clearly explain what we need and want from someone in a respectful way. If someone is bullying you or someone you know, you can stand up to them in a respectful way and tell them to stop. You can also get help from a trusted adult if you stand up for yourself and others and they do not stop.”
