As you read the story: Scaredy Squirrel makes a friend by Melanie Watt, encourage children to think about what Scaredy Squirrel might be feeling when making a new friend. They will then consider how they felt coming back to school. Students will realize that they share similar feelings with Scaredy Squirrel, and that in the end they have a classroom full of friends!
This craftivity is a great way to excite students about reading and writing. It is also a great bulletin board activity for the beginning of the year.
