Learning to Be a Friend

This modelling the tools is incorporated into critical challenges at Kindergarten, however, it can be adapted for use at all grade levels.



Introduce other situations.

  • Display other pictures or describe scenarios that involve bullying, exclusion and similar problems. Invite students to describe the distressing situation, brainstorm a list of possible responses, role-play the options and select the action that best reflects the qualities of a friendly person.

Refer to the chart.

  • When classroom situations arise where students treat each other in an unfriendly manner, invite offending students to use the chart as a source of ideas for friendly actions they might have taken or actions they might take to readdress the situation.
