Being a Good Friend – Mini-Book

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Years: F - 2

A social story to develop social skills for being a good friend.

Let’s Be Social – Stories for the Classroom

Recognising appropriate social cues and how to interact with others are important skills for all students. Understanding how to communicate, be a good listener and be a good friend are all skills that will help students succeed in the classroom and transfer into adulthood. 

Teach Starter has created a printable mini-book to help your students read about being a good friend. Each page is designed in a simple manner with real-life photographs to help students make connections and understand the examples. In this mini-book, students will learn important points such as:

  • I am a good friend when I share and take turns.
  • I am a good friend when I am kind to others.
  • I am a good friend when I say nice things.

The last page of the mini-book also poses a question with three picture choices for students to choose from as their answer.
