Friendship Scenarios – Discussion starters presents a range of everyday situations that children may encounter and asks them to contemplate and discuss how they would respond in a friendly way using their Friendship Superpower.
Ten scenarios are included in the resource, each presented on its own page which can be displayed on the interactive whiteboard to begin the discussion. Alternatively, pages can printed for display in the classroom or combined into a booklet.
Discussion should include:
- feelings – how you would feel and how the others would feel
- responses – friendly actions and solutions
- what you might do if you were in the situation and needed help
A blank page is included on which you can record other situations children encounter.
Note: The scenarios and discussion may be used to initiate some interesting story writing.
