Busy Bees ABC of friendship
Character Development | Friendship Skills
Busy Bees ABC of friendship is an alphabet of words that can be used to stimulate discussion about what a friend is and what friends do.
Each letter has a word and accompanying explanatory statement on its own chart. The charts can be displayed on the interactive whiteboard to stimulate discussion about the words and what they mean for being a friend. They can also be printed and displayed in the classroom or compiled into a book to place in the reading corner or for children to take home and read to parents.
The entire alphabet is also available on one printable chart. Children could colour the box for each letter as they do something appropriate to the word. The chart can be laminated and distributed to children to keep. Enlarged to A3, the chart can be the focus of a display about friendship.
There are many more words related to friendship than this list of twenty-six. Why not add children’s suggestions to the charts or make charts of your own?
