How can your class become a community of learners? These self-portrait paper dolls encourage everyone to become better friends.
Read a book to the class about getting along with others, such as "When I Feel Good About Myself" by Cornelia Maude Spelman. As a class, make a list of ways that people act when they care about each other.
On construction paper, have students draw a miniature version of themselves with Crayola Twistables® Crayons and Washable Markers. Add details such as hair, eyes, and clothing. Use Crayola Scissors to cut out the paper doll. List on the back, two or three ways to be an even better friend with classmates, team members, and family.
Divide students into small groups. Each group writes a skit about a situation they may face at school. How would they react if a friend won a poster contest? How would they deal with a bully? Make sure students use correct grammar and whole sentences in the skit—and give create several different endings! Students will use their paper dolls to act out possible solutions. Choose one of the best resolutions to share with the class.
