What We Want From Friends

I had my 5th graders list the most important characteristics in their friends – and to prioritize them. Here are two responses:

Pretty? Why Pretty? (This was written by a girl)

You’ve got to love how candid kids can be – “too talkative” – nobody likes that, right?

I like the “joyful” consideration!

 

I noticed that out of 61 5th graders, “trust” and “kindness” were the top two answers.

Opal and Ice

Crrrrrraack! Tingtingting! Is that the ice dispenser I hear?

Run down the hall, from under Josie’s bed

Skid to a halt and plead with eyes

Open mouth and receive icy goodness

Ice was a chip of ice (not a cube), it looks larger here due to screenshot from a video
