Encouraging Friendships in Early Childhood Education

“A true friend never gets in your way unless 
you happen to be going down.”
~Arnold Glasow

Kathleen was standing against the wall.
She is a very happy go lucky child so I kept an eye on her….she didn’t move so I approached her.
“Well, Hi Kathleen.”
“Well, Hi Ms. Bah-Bah.”
“You look mighty comfy just standing there. What are you thinking about?”
“Well. I just lookin’ for a f-wend to p-way with.” She replied.
“A friend to play with? Oh! I actually thought you were sad.”
“Me?” Kathleen looked shocked.
“What’s goin’ on people’s?” Jack wondered over.
“I’m standing here lookin’ for a f-end, I’m not sad, either.”
“Oh.” Jack smiled. “I’ll look with you just in case you get sad.”
“Tanks, Jack.”
“Welcome Kathleen.”
“See you later kids.” I said.
