Product Description
Back to School - A "Making Friends" Activity

Back to School – A Making Friends Activity

This activity would be great at the beginning of the year to set the tone for the classroom. It would also be a good reminder throughout the year and especially meaningful around Valentine’s Day.

Every year it seems that we need to remind, or teach, students how to make a friend. More importantly, some students need to understand what it takes to KEEP a friend.

Wouldn’t that solve lots of the reoccurring clashes amongst certain students?

Why not combine that lesson with a silly song and “How To” writing lessons? My students LOVE Dr. Jean’s song, “Hello Neighbor.” Even if you are not a “singer” by nature, play the song and let the kids do the singing. I have included a page for the motions to go with the song.

*** Great news!! Dr. Jean has this song for free in her TPT store! She is the best!

Use the “Hello Neighbor!” song by Dr. Jean to spice up your writing lesson. Use these resources to remind, or teach, students how to be a friend in a silly and cheerful, yet methodical way. Maybe this will help the hard-to-get-along-with student to “see the light.” It’s always worth a try.

No matter what time of year you teach informational writing, this “how to” writing activity will be a good resource for a review, a preview, or the actual lesson. The silly song element will keep the students engaged and smiling.
