It started in 2007 when two high school students in Nova Scotia took a stand against bullying in their school. The students asked all of their peers to wear pink to school after they heard a male classmate had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt. To continue the momentum, the Canadian Red Cross Day of Pink campaign brings together schools and communities to wear the shirt and stand together against bullying. - http://www.redcross.ca/dayofpink/manitoba.asp
The children and I talked about this and started discussing the personality traits that we have that are going to make us strong people that stand up for others. We have also been listening to "What I Am" by Will.i.am (a lot, it's awesome) which talks about being a strong person. Awesome!
To pull it all together, each child decided which trait of theirs was the most important to them and we took a picture! We just need to snap one more photo tomorrow and our collage of anti-bullying, strong, supportive traits will be ready!
For now, here are a couple of samples. Stay tuned for the final product :)
