Dear Hoover parents,

This month’s ABC book: “Friends to the End for Kids: The True Value of Friendship” by Bradley Trevor Greive uses engaging photos of animals to illustrate how to make friends, keep friends, and the importance of friends.

Goals of lesson:

  • To help all students learn how to respect each other and to develop stronger interpersonal skills.
  • To have students explore ways to be UPstanders both online and in our face-to-face world.

To reinforce this lesson at home:

Share some stories about your own friendships. Here are some questions you can discuss with your child:

  • What do you like most about your friends?
  • Do they bring out the best in you?
  • Do you bring out the best in them?  
  • How do you show your friends that you care about them?
  • How do your friends handle conflict when it arises?

 

               When you “catch” kids modeling positive behaviors...

                                        Notice, Name it, and Celebrate it!

 

Best regards,

Anjuli
