Today we celebrated Valentine's day. A special celebration of Friendship!
If the afternoon we talked a little bit about friendships. We read the story Enemy Pie by Derek Munson, which lead to a great discussion about what a good friendship is. After the story and discussion we were ready to make our friendship fruit salad. Each student had brought in one small container of a prepared fruit. We talked about words that described what a good friend is. Then I labeled each of the fruits with one of those qualities and told the students we would be adding each of these special "friendship ingredients" to our salad. After we added and mixed all of the great friendship ingredients together we were ready to eat. The best part, the whipping cream on top! The Whipping cream signifies the glue that keeps all of the friendship ingredients together!
Thank you to all of the parents for sending in fruit for our friendship fruit salad. The salad was delicious!
