This month’s ABC book: “Friends to the End for Kids: The True Value of Friendshipby Bradley Trevor Greive uses engaging photos of animals to illustrate how to make friends, keep friends, and the importance of friends.

Goals of lesson:

  •   To help all students learn how to respect each other and to develop stronger

    interpersonal skills.

  •   To have students explore ways to be UPstanders both online and in our

    face-to-face world.

    To reinforce this lesson at home:

Share some stories about your own friendships.
Here are some questions you can discuss with your child:

What do you like most about your friends?
Do they bring out the best in you?
Do you bring out the best in them?
How do you show your friends that you care about them? How do your friends handle conflict when it arises?

When you “catch” kids modeling positive behaviors... Notice, Name it, and Celebrate it!
