Today I’m going to stand up to bullies. The teacher put me on bully patrol.
“Hey loser.” Genevieve said to my cousin Sylvie.
“Oh no ya don’t.” I said defending my cousin.
And surprisingly she walks away.
Then Sylvie starts reading.
“Whatcha doing – reading a book for babies?” Genevieve asked. The bell rings.
Later for the next recess I see a little girl from kindergarten named Jodie.
“What’s wrong, Jodie?” I asked.
I put a comforting arm around her.
“Aggie is bullying me.” Jodie said.
She pointed to Aggie.
“Come over here.” She whispered to Jodie.
She whispered something to Jodie. I could tell that it was mean because Jodie started crying.
“Cry baby!” Aggie said.
Later I saw a sign up list to sign up to help kids that are getting bullied and to help them with school.
I signed up.
The next day I found out who I was with – it was Jodie!
I was waiting for Jodie for our first big buddy-petite buddy.
Soon Jodie arrived.
“Sit down.” I said.
Jodie sat down.
I sat down next to her.
“Can I eat the sandwich?” Jodie asked.
I laughed. “Of course.” I said.
“Ok Jodie, is there anyone else bullying you besides Aggie?” I asked.
“Aggie just starts and everybody else joins in.” Jodie said.
“That’s terrible.” I said.
“Ok Jodie I’m not sure why everyone is bullying you – maybe because they are jealous of how good you do in school.” I said.
“What! I always thought I did badly.” Jodie said.
“Jodie you are the opposite.” I said. I think what I said made Jodie feel a lot better. “Jodie Wilson, you are one smart kid.”
