We discussed how sometimes even friends don't always agree. We compared some of our favorite things, like school subjects (hers: phys ed, mine: art & reading)favorite places (home, playground, etc). You get the idea!
We used stuffed dolls to act out the following scenarios:
-Your best friend is crying. How would you show you care?
-One of the girls has a birthday.
-Your mother has something important to do and can’t play with you.
-A neighbor falls and breaks a leg.
-Your friend is afraid of failing a test.
-A classmate forgot his lunch.
We also made several of our own scenarios. Shayla really enjoyed acting these out and actively participated in dialog between characters. Woo-hoo! (Social studies, communications – social skills, character)
