My school has designated this week as “Friendship Week” as part of our anti-bullying strategy. It is such a lovely idea, isn’t it? I am really excited about marking the importance of valuing our friends.
I thought that it would be a lovely idea to get my class to write a little poem about their friend and then to read it to him/her. As I teach emergent writers (5-7yrs) I created a “fill-in-the-blanks” format poem. I think that it will be a good way to encourage my class to think about their friendships and to honor a good friend.
Perhaps it might be of use to you? It would be soooo cute for kids to include in a birthday card to their best friend, wouldn’t it?! Please click here to download a copy of ”My Friend” poem
