All Aboard “The Friendship” Pack


Hi Sweet Friends!

I am SUPER excited to share my friendship packet with you all.

Such a huge component of school is building friendships, and learning how to face and solve problems the RIGHT way. This packet is filled with many different friendship building activities that are perfect to do at the beginning of the year, or to do alongside your Social Studies or Health curriculum.

The friends on “The Friendship” explain the importance of being a good friend in this engaging story, “All Aboard ‘The Friendship.” Your students will LOVE boarding “The Friendship” for a fun and memorable adventure!


After reading the story, your students can complete many activities that correlate with the story I wrote, and with other friendship stories. You and your students will LOVE them all! 


You’ll find lots of great visuals and a problem-solving book in this packet, as well. I plan on displaying these in an area that my students can access easily. Then, if two students encounter a problem, they can be sent to this designated area to work it out.



You’ll also find an engaging game called, “Treasure Your Friendships,” which requires students to read and answer questions from a  “What Would You Do?” real-life situation card. I provided instructions on how to play this game as a whole group, in case your students aren’t reading quite yet (like my firsties!), or in small groups.



You can find all of the activities you see above (and MORE!) in this 56 page packet at my TPT shop!


The first two people who can tell me all about a friend near and dear to you will get this entire packet for free. Yipee! Don’t forget to leave your e-mail address.

This is so perfect for back to school. I think of my daughter Cayla as my best friend. (After all I've known her all her life!) Thanks for sharing.

Darn the unpacking I've had to do today! I am so far behind in my blogging, and so far away from being the 2nd person to respond! But this looks like an amazing packet, and such an important concept for primary kids. It makes me think of my Bestie, Selena, who was NOT my friend in grade school! So glad we both changed our minds and got together:)
