Social Relationships Pack
: This social relationships pack is full of activities to help your students consider the people who are important to them. While completing these activities students will have the opportunity to list peers and adults that are important to them, and give reasons why these people are important. They will also be asked to draw themselves and their friends. These drawings will encourage your students to think about the characteristics that make themselves, and their classmates unique.
Students will also answer questions about friendship, and what it means to be a good friend, which is a great activity to accompany any discussion about empathy. The pack also includes a "Big list of relationships". This is a great take home opportunity, it asks students to list all of their important relationships. These are broken down into different categories, such as immediate and extended family, friends both in and out of school, and other important adults. This activity is an amazing opportunity for you to get to know your students better.
The final activity in this set includes two venn diagrams, so that children can compare themselves to a friend and a family member. They will think of some of the ways that they are different from this person, and some of their similarities to complete the diagram.
This pack was developed so that even the youngest students could complete it successfully with the help of an adult, whether that be one on one with the teacher, and aid, or a parent.
Friendship and Social Skills Cards
: These cards are designed to help your students get to know each other better. Many of your students can probably tell you all about themselves, but how much can they tell you about each other? Encourage them to think about their classmates, their physical characteristics, and the things that they enjoy. These cards could be used as a large group activity, a small group activity, or a partner activity. Each card contains a small white circle where students can write the name of the classmate that they believe fulfills the answer to the question. Laminate the cards and your students can fill in the answer circles with a fine tip dry erase marker.
Physical Characteristics Set

This set can be used two ways:
1.Cut out the faces and all of the included hair pieces, and encourage students to use the pieces provided to create different faces.
