Product Description
Making and keeping friends is a hot topic in most elementary classrooms and it’s important for kiddos to understand what words and actions attract vs. repel people. These discussion task cards were created as a companion to Julia Cook’s Making Friends Is an Art to help students identify ways they can be better friends and have more positive peer relationships.

Eleven of the cards are specific to the traits of the pencils in the story and the other thirteen are general elementary-level social skills questions.

Also included is a mini-poster (2 versions) with the colored pencils' positive friendship traits.

How can you use these task cards? Here’s some ideas!
• Quiz, Quiz, Trade
• Gallery Walk
• Concentric Circles
• Centers/Rotations
• As Exit Tickets (Pick a card and respond to it)
• Paired with games like Candy Land, Uno, or Don’t Break the Ice (read a card before you take your turn)
