Friendship Day

Friday at Pre-K was friendship day. We have been working very hard at learning each other's names, and getting to know each other.

I had beads and pipecleaners out on one table so that the children could make "friendship bracelets." (Good eye hand coordination project too.)

On Wednesday, I had read a book to the children about friendship. Then on Friday we talked about what it means to be a friend, and how friends treat each other. The children told me their ideas and I wrote them down on a 3x5 card.

We then went in to decorate "ourselves." I used the same people shapes that I had used for my 3's. Only I added a bit of decorative material. They were still allowed to use markers, but I also had scrap paper, scissors, and glue and they could make things from those materials.

Many of the children just used the markers. Some wanted real clothes, but wanted me to cut them out for them. I did since it was a bit abstract. I had one little boy that decided he was going to cut everything out for himself. Good for him!

When everyone was finished I taped them to the wall "holding hands" with our friendship qualities listed underneath. Too cute!
