First grade started a collaborative Friendship unit between the classroom and the library. Students learn about friendship through books, skits, reflections, and real life experience. Discussions in the library have sparked ideas like:
“A good friend forgives you.”
“A good friend listens to you.”
“A good host shows you around.”
“A good guest says please and thank you.”
“You don’t have to be the same to be friends.”
Ask a first grader about the books Owen and Mzee, The Friendship Tree, or Enemy Pie.
