Welcome back to Raki's Rad Resources for our latest Spotlight Blogger. My family and I are camping right now, and we are taking a break from all screens in an effort to recharge our batteries and get ready for the new school year. While we are gone, I hope you are enjoying the spotlight bloggers who have agreed to guest blog for me. Be sure to pin the posts you like, as the spotlight blogger with the most pins on their post will win a special prize! And then, please stop by their blogs and see all the awesome things they have to offer you.
As school inches nearer, I'm excited about another chance to facilitate those budding friendships in the upcoming school year. An important focus as you grow your class families is helping your kids connect with one another and build relationships. To make the abstract concept of friendship a bit more tangible, consider making a Friendship Kit with your little learners. Prior to the lesson, put the items below (and a list of what each represents) into a clear sandwich baggie. Before showing students the items in the Kit, ask them what they might put into a Friendship Kit if they were making one and why.
