Just like Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina, the children in your classroom are still learning how to be a friend, how to compromise, and how to work together to solve a problem. By seeing how Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina work out their conflict, children are learning strategies that they can apply to their own friendships. And just as Fred Rogers shared with previous generations, Daniel Tiger shares the message that one of life's greatest joys is the comfortable give-and-take of a good friendship. It's a wonderful feeling not only to have a friend, but to know how to be a friend yourself.
In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on expressing their feelings and ideas, listen to each other and work together to solve a problem or conflict.
Watch the videos about Friendship and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children work on friendship skills.
Explore the topic of Friendship in your classroom using the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity.
