Getting to know each other:At the beginning of each group time, we have been playing a game to get to know each other. The children took turns choosing a person to roll a ball to and ask a question. This is what we have learned about one another.
Ryleigh has a brother named Cameron.
Chloe's favourite colour is purple.
Tyreese has a brother and a sister.
Keira has a cat.
Sofia likes the colour pink.
Bela's favourite colour is golden.
William likes to play Lego.
Michael likes red and green.
How to Make Friends
|How Willy feels|
Before we read the story the children made predictions as to why Willy is lonely.
Sofia: maybe his friends are excluding him.
Ryleigh: maybe his friends said bad things to him.
When we finished the story, the children initiated a discussion about how Willy felt without having a friend. They had many ideas how Willy could make friends. With their ideas, we made a poster on "How to make friends."
Sofia: Ask somebody your name.
Keira: Share your toys.
