Focus on friendship by writing and singing songs, talking about friendship skills, and creating textured art images about the joy of having friends.
Read a book or watch a video about friendship with your classmates. Think of people you call your friends. How do friendships start? What are the characteristics of a good friend? How do friends keep a relationship going?
Work in groups of 2 or 3. Choose a common tune such as "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" or "This Land is Your Land." Sing the song together, and notice the musical phrases. Come up with your own lyrics, matching the tune of the original song, but focusing on ideas about friendship. Write the words with Crayola® Crayons on construction paper. Share your song with the group.
Create a textured image with your own unique designs. Carefully cut imaginative Friendship Shapes from sandpaper with Crayola Scissors. Arrange the shapes in a pleasing manner on oaktag or poster board, and attach them with Crayola School Glue. Dry.
Remove the wrapper from a favorite crayon color. Ask a friend to hold a sheet of construction paper over the shape arrangement for you. Rub the side of the crayon over the surface of the paper to reveal your image.
Slightly reposition the paper on top of the shape arrangement. Choose a second crayon color and repeat to create a shadow effect. Create several rubbings, experimenting with different color combinations and degrees of pressure when rubbing crayon over surface.
