Trifecta: How to Grow A Friend

howtogrowafriend

I think that Sara Gillingham’s How To Grow a Friend is going to become a read aloud favorite in elementary classrooms around the world. Sara’s beautiful illustrations and important and accessible messages about friendship make this book a 5 star read aloud.

After reading the book to my students they had the following to say about friendship.

I think that a way to make friends is to go up to someone and introduce yourself to them, a way not to do it is to go up to them and start poking them.

-Naida

When your friend get’s hurt walk over and ask him if he’s okay.

-Eric

Friendship doesn’t happen overnight.

-Sam

What I do is I meet a person that looks lonely. Then I ask what she/he name is. Next I ask she/he  to play.

-Chloe

If you want a friend you have to be kind to them, help them when they ask and play fair.

-Caiden

There are many ways to grow a friend. One way is to talk to them and see what they like. You can also play with them. You can play what you like or play what they like.

-Leslie

Be sure to head over to Mr. Schu’s blog to see what his students thought of How To Grow a Friend.
