At the Capuano Early Childhood Center and at the Brown School, the kindergarten classes read a number of stories about friendship including Jacqueline Woodson’s The Other Side, which is about a little black girl befriending a white girl at a time when segregation was the unfortunate norm. We talked about what it means to be friends with all kinds of people in the world. We talked about sharing and using kind words with our friends . We also read Will I Have A Friend? by Mariam Cohen and Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni. After storytime, we constructed Friendship Wreaths. We traced, designed and cut out the tracings of our hands in order to make the wreaths.
