Mrs. Jacobson took a break from our regular 2nd Step Lessons this week to focus on qualities of a good friend. Our class created “Friendship Fire” pamphlets describing the qualities they would like in a friend. Today, we did a gallery walk and discovered that there are many classmates who want the same things in a friend! We talked about how we can continue to have a community of friends within our classroom. We encouraged one another to try playing with new friends who are looking for similar friendships. We also talked about having empathy for classmates who take the courage to ask a new friend to play or sit with us at lunch, and to make time to get to know new people.
