Ann and Kirsten Share Ideas
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Kirsten has been learning about how to deal with bullies. One day, a bully bothered a girl named Ann in the cafeteria. Kirsten had watched, but she didn't know what to do. She ended up doing nothing, and this made Kirsten feel bad. Kirsten called Ann that night to see how Ann was feeling.
 
2     "I feel better because I talked to my mom about the mean girl who teased me about my freckles. I like my freckles. My mom has freckles, too," said Ann.
 
3     "I am glad you feel better," said Kirsten. "I wish I had done something to help you. I didn't know what to do, and I am sorry."
 
4     "That's OK," said Ann. "I don't think anyone knew what to do."
 
5     "I talked to my mom, too," said Kirsten. "I have some ideas to share. Why don't you come over after school tomorrow? We can talk and eat cookies," said Kirsten.
 
6     "That sounds fun. I'll ask my mom," said Ann. She sounded excited to be making a new friend after being teased by the cafeteria bully.
 
7     Ann went to Kirsten's house the next day. They talked about math and social studies. They piled fresh chocolate chip cookies on a plate and poured two glasses of cold milk. Kirsten had baked the cookies the day before. Kirsten carried the cookies, and Ann carried the milk up to Kirsten's room.
 
8     "I thought of some things to do if anyone is bullied in the cafeteria again," said Kirsten.
