Character Education: Using adjectives to describe friendship

 

Goal: We will create a flower using adjectives to describe a friend.

 

Core Curriculum Skills: adjectives, read and respond to fiction and nonfiction

 

PA Standards: 1.1E, 1.4B, 1.6A, 1.6C, 1.6D, 1.6E

 

Think Aloud: I will model/discuss:

1.      Adjectives about my friend.

2.      We are learning about friendship, and I found a beautiful story and poem.

 

Shared Reading:

 

1.      A Friend by Betsey Jones Michael

2.      Friends Forever taken from a story by Ann Morris

 

Teaching Strategies:

 

1.      Think/Pair/Share- Students will process what they’ve read and make their own personal connections to their friendships.

2.      Create a chart while students pair/share and brainstorm adjectives (pair/share about words) to describe friends.

3.      Discuss friendship list.

4.      Graphic Organizer- Pair/share an adjective that describes your friend, and give a sentence explaining why. The children will then begin to fill in their web using 5 adjectives and 5 sentences describing their friend. These adjectives and sentences will then be transferred to a flower template to be displayed.

Reflection:

1.      What was your favorite part of this lesson?

2.      What did you learn about friendship?
