Based on the book, "The Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister, this powerpoint presentation guidance lesson is perfect for your primary students to learn about how to be a good friend, friendship skills, and setting priorities in life.
Rainbow Fish is proud of his beautiful scales and ends up losing all of his friends because he is unwilling to be a good friend or to share. He consults with the great octopus who advises him to think about what he has done and helps him to understand how to be happy.
Friendship skills are supported with comprehension questions and tolerance for others is discussed. Rainbow Fish learns that what he looks like on the outside is less important than who he is on the inside.
Using this presentation for your guidance lesson, you can easily help students to both value differences and understand the importance of being kind and tolerant of others.
This presentation has 13 slides and includes a link to the book being read by Ernest Borgnine as a part of the SAG Foundation book buddy program. The video runs approximately 7 minutes.
There is an activity included at the end to be done by students at the end of the presentation as well as the master for a coloring sheet for students.
I would schedule 30 minutes for this lesson and activity.
The PowerPoint is customizable and includes notes to support you in your lesson including questions and ideas for presentation. The presentation includes both animations and transitions to hold your students' interest.
Make your lesson come alive for your students and help them to connect to the concept in a fun way that will help them to remember the important lessons you need for them to remember.
