This month, we're on a journey to explore the wonderful world of friendship! Through engaging lessons and activities, your students will discover the true meaning of friendship, what makes a good friend, and how to build strong, positive connections with their classmates.


This four-week unit is designed to help your students develop the social and emotional skills they need to thrive in your classroom and beyond. By fostering a foundation of kindness, respect, and empathy, you'll be creating a positive and inclusive classroom environment where everyone feels valued and supported.


Here's a sneak peek into what your students will learn each week:

  • Week 1: What Makes a Good Friend? We'll explore the qualities that make a friend special, like trustworthiness, kindness, and helpfulness.
  • Week 2: How to Be a Good Friend Your students will learn practical ways to show their friends they care, through active listening, sharing, and kindness.
  • Week 3: How to Make New Friends This week is all about building new connections! We'll teach your students how to start conversations, find common interests, and build bridges with new classmates.
  • Week 4: Dealing with Disagreements with Friends Even the best friends disagree sometimes! We'll help your students develop the communication and compromise skills they need to navigate disagreements and strengthen their friendships.


By the end of this unit, your students will walk away with a deeper understanding of friendship and the tools they need to build positive, lasting connections with their peers.
