Is there an ingredient you wish you could add or remove from Friendship Soup?Give a scenario where honesty can lead to an argument?

How is your “soup” different from friend to friend? Why are different soups necessary for different friends?Can you explain what would happen if your soup only had one ingredient?Why did they take jealousy out of the soup? How does jealousy impact a friendship?What is the role of respect during an argument?Do all the ingredients in Friendship Soup need to be equal in portions?

Was there an important ingredient left out? Why would that ingredient be important?How could “sticky arguments” be a good thing for a friendship?Would others like your Friendship Soup recipe?Are all ingredients in Friendship Soup equally important?

Instead of soup, what other metaphors could be used to talk about friendship?

Discussion Starters

Relationship Skills, Friendship

Explain to students that ‘Building Relationships’ is the theme of this video Ask them to discuss what it means to ‘build’ a relationship. Primary students may identify traits. Challenge intermediate students to discuss why we often use construction-type language (e.g. build, make, form, develop) when talking about friendship.

Writing Prompts Pair of Friends Using the printable provided, instruct students to draw

a pair of friends. They could be from a book or tv show, or they could be the student and a friend. Why are they friends? Help them complete this sentence: ______ and _______ are friends because ________. (Example: “Drew and Matthew are friends because they ride the same bus home.”)

Friendship Recipes After watching the “Friendship Soup” video, instruct students to create the recipes for three of your friendships. Choose three different types of friends (for example, a peer, family member, pet, faraway friend, much older/younger friend, someone who you would like to know better). Write their names on the printable . Are there similar ingredients? Are your recipes quite different? What gives each friendship its flavors?

Speaking & ListeningInteract with information presented in diverse media and formats.

I can identify the ingredients of a healthy

friendship.

Relationship Skills, Friendship

ActivitiesMy Friendship Soup Hand out the two page printable of the soup pot and ingredients. Instruct students to colour both pages. Help student cutout the ingredients and glue or tape them to their pot to create their own ‘friendship soup.’ Challenge intermediate students to write three synonyms and one antonym for each word on the ingredient.

Reader’s Theatre Students can demonstrate what specific “friendship traits” look and sound like in every-day life scenarios.1. Divide class into small groups of 4-5 students.2. Assign a script recorder for each group. This person is responsible for writing the script with the ideas and supporting of the rest of the group.3. Give each group a setting for their Reader’s Theatre: What do friends DO and SAY…. at play. at camp, on the bus, at lunch, on a sport team, write your own!3. Each member of the group is a character in the Reader’s Theatre script. Each person should name their character and choose one unique friendship trait (use the list of video key vocabulary words and/or any new words that you added after class discussion). 4. Each character needs a minimum of three lines of conversation/interaction with the other characters. Make sure the scripted lines for each character demonstrate their character trait in such a way that the audience will be able to identify what trait that character represents. NOTE for students: Don’t say your character is HONEST…SHOW him being honest without using the word honest!5. Allow groups time to write a script and prepare to present their Reader’s Theatre Play to the class. 6. The audience students will evaluate the success of each group by identifying what trait each character best represented through their words and voice intonation. The audience students should share their reasoning for matching a trait to a character.

Building Relationships Lesson Plan | A Bad Case of Stripes

Activities

Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she never eats them. Why? Because the other kids in her school don’t like them. And Camilla Cream is very, very worried about what other people think of her. In fact, she’s so worried that she’s about to break out in…a bad case of stripes!

- Scholastic

Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons.- Introduce the topic or text they are writing about, state an opinion, and create an organizational structure that lists reasons.- Provide reasons that support the opinion.- Use linking words and phrases (e.g., because, therefore, since, for example) to connect opinion and reasons.- Provide a concluding statement or section.

lima beans pg 2ointment pg 5distraction pg 11contagious pg 11bizarre pg 19vanished pg 29

I can write a paper about a unique quality I possess and give reasons to why I believe it is important

to be true to that quality regardless of others.

1. How would you feel if you woke up completely covered in stripes?2. What do you think the students will say when they see Camilla?3. The other kids did not use the E in NED (Encourage others) when they

saw Camilla and laughed at her. How do you think Camilla felt? Has there even been a time when you’ve laughed at others? Why? Do you wish you hadn’t?

4. How do you think the little old woman knew the cure for a bad case of stripes?

5. Camilla realizes that it is ok to be different. What would it be like if everyone was the same and only liked the same things?

6. What advice do you think NED would give to Camilla?

Identify Unique Qualities Using ideas from the group discussion, have each student create a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting their unique qualities with a friend or family member.

Allow students to paint their faces with stripes or take a picture of each student and allow them to add stripes to their face using crayons/markers or a computer program. Display the pictures along with a writing prompt about their unique qualities.

Discussion Starters

Writing Prompt

Being Yourself & Acceptance

As a class, have students discuss something that is unique about them. As an example, compare/contrast yourself to a student by creating a Venn Diagram on the whiteboard. Identify both your similar and different qualities.

Building Relationships Lesson Plan | The Lemonade War

CoreSKILLS

Activities

Evan Treski is people-smart. He is good at talking to people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand is math-smart - but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. So when their lemonade war begins, there is no telling who will win - or if their fight will ever

end. - Sandpiper Books

Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from a text.

Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions).

Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 4 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range or strategies.

Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.- Explain the meaning of simple similes and metaphors (e.g., as pretty as a picture) in context.

profit pg 103-105rivalry pg 59optimist pg 33miser pg 63, 68Each chapter begins with a math related vocabulary word and dictionary entry

1. When Jessie is upset she rereads Charlotte’s Web. What do you do to help calm yourself down and get your mind off of things?

2. Jessie has a hard time understanding how others feel. Look up empathy in the dictionary and define it. Explain how it relates to Jessie and give an example of when empathy is a problem for Jessie. Also, find some of the advice that Evan gives his sister in regards to other people. How empathetic are you? Who are you more empathetic with? How are empathy and encouragement (the E in NED) similar and different?

3. Is it fair for Evan to keep the profits that he and his friends made (pg 87)? Explain. Is it fair for Jessie to add Megan’s share of the profits to her total since they are both donating it? Are these situations similar?

Explore Figurative Language There are numerous similes in this story (pg 9, 22, 40, 61, 91, 126, 130, 135, 172). Locate and write down these similes. Identify and explain what is being compared. Write three sentences of your own that incorporate similes to make new comparisons. There are also idioms (e.g. pg 75, 142) and metaphors throughout the book that could be identified, explained and used as a model.

Cause and Effect Detail the actions that Jessie and Evan each took with their lemonade stands and the effect it had on the war. When writing the actions of each character, use colour to represent the amount of revenge or anger involved. Think about a fire and how it starts with yellows, oranges, and moves to reds and even white. As the actions become more intense so should your colour scheme.

Discussion Starters

Writing Prompt

Sibling Rivalry, Revenge, Empathy, Forgiveness, Family

Discuss rivalries and sibling relationships. Explain that they are pretty ordinary, but can sometimes become extreme like in this story where the main characters, Evan and Jessie, say and do some pretty mean things during their Lemonade War.

I can explain similes and use them to write my own. I can compare character’s decisions and use them as an example of what I would do if in a similar

situation.

Building Relationships Lesson Plan | The Orphan of Ellis Island

CoreSKILLS

Activity

On a class trip to Ellis Island in New York, orphan Dominic Cantori is mysteriously transported back to 1908 Italy, where he learns about his heritage and his

family. - Scholastic

Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information.

Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

Conduct short research projects that use several sources to build knowledge through investigation of different aspects of a topic.

Include multimedia components (e.g., graphics, sound) and visual displays in presentations when appropriate to enhance the development of main idea or theme.

I will reflect upon the meaning of family and

can explain its importance through writing.

1. Dominic creates a “dream family” and on his field trip to Ellis Island goes from photo to photo trying on different families. What does the author mean by this phrase and what is Dominic really looking for?

2. Moving to a new country, city or even a new school is not easy. How can the E in NED help you to be different when someone new comes to your school?

3. The tour guide says Ellis Island has been called “The Island of Hope,” but also the “Island of Tears” (pg. 8). What do these phrases mean? How can the same place be given such opposing descriptions?

4. Determine the theme(s) of this book. Identify the theme or themes and give examples from the book to support each theme.

On page 121, refer to what the priest says -“Our whole world, our life, is very much like that little patch of hillside you boys have lived on...” and ending with “...There are beautiful flowers, and olives, and lemons. But there are bad things too...good and bad, side by side... And it is our strength that makes us who we are.” Do you agree? Define the word resilience, relate it to this quote and include it within your explanation. What has been a hardship for you? How did you feel when the hardship occurred and how do you feel about it now? What kind of behaviours did you see at first and how did they improve as time went on?

Follow the story of four generations of one side of your family. Interview relatives to find out their names, birth date and place and if/where they moved during their life. Create a multimedia presentation with a map, plotted color dots on important location, photos, etc. Share your findings with the class and your own family.

Discussion Starters

Writing Prompt

Immigration, Family, Foster Care, Loss

Show the YouTube video “Immigration Ellis Island 1911” and discuss the purpose of immigration (poverty, political, etc.) and the ramifications it had on families (separation, loss, name change, etc.).

Refer to the map in the back of the book so students will understand the journey that the boys will travel from Avellino (fictional city) to Calabria later in the story. Show pictures of lemon groves in Italy and discuss the differences of this terrain and the period (1908).
