We read books such as Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman, My Friend Rabbit by Eric Rohmann, and Finklehopper Frog by Irene Livingston. Each of these have a little different type of friendship happening and they are all terrific fun to read! After we read each one, we went back and looked for some of those characteristics that we had listed.
Students then chose the characteristic they felt was most important, wrote it on a piece of paper and decorated it. We then used the Flipgrid app on the iPad to record students explaining their choice.
Now that I have completed this blog post, I will be sharing the project and inviting other students to add to our grid. We would love to know what is important to you about being a friend.
Please add to our grids!
Thank you! We look forward to learning from you!
