The lesson “Encouraging Your Friends” focuses on teaching children further about the importance of effective interpersonal relationship skills, specifically being a good friend through kindness, compassion, and encouragement. The children will learn to distinguish the difference between true encouragement and flattery and learn how genuine and honest encouragement makes them a good friend. Each child will demonstrate and practice giving encouragement to his or her friends in class. The lesson includes guided instructions for the teacher, including preparation, a script, and suggested activities to facilitate further learning in a fun and interactive manner. This lesson is designed for children between 9-11 years, and is the 24th lesson in the 2nd year Core Curriculum Set and part of the “Social Relationships” unit.
