To be used with "How To Lose All Of Your Friends" by Nancy Carlson. At the end of the story the girl has lost all of her friends. The students make "keys to friendship" to help get her out of the house.
No doubt this handsome display will help little ones remember how to be a friend to others! Cut out a class supply of hand patterns (see print link) on white construction paper. Give each youngster a pattern and encourage her to color it. Display the hands on a bulletin board in a wreath shape. Title the board as shown. Finally, ask youngsters to give examples of how to be a good friend as you write their words around the wreath. This eye-catching bulletin board is sure to be a favorite!
Quick an easy idea for an end of the year bulletin board. If you don't want to mess with paint, have students trace, trim and glue their hand print on a variety of colors of construction paper, then have them write their name on it. Could also jot a note to your next year's kiddos and you could leave the board up for back to school. "We came as strangers; we leave as friends. You will too!"
