Time to "Shape Up" your friendships! Making friends can be tricky and some students need extra practice and learning to help them with their social skills. All of these no prep black and white worksheet activities are designed to help students think about the way they make friends. The worksheets allow students to identify areas they need to improve on or a chance to practice and learn how to make or keep friends. The following areas are targeted:
Friend Posters (3 word posters & 3 blank posters)
The 3 word posters are great to colour and read to reinforce the skills: “A Good Friend”, “A Conversation Needs” & “Getting Along Means”. The blank posters can be used for students to brainstorm their own ideas or complete them after the learning about friendships
