Synopsis of how guidance and academic lesson are related and integrated: The English and Language
Arts Standards are related to the guidance lesson because the lesson will help students understand how to
be a friend and how to treat others. This will include how they speak to classmates as well as appropriate
behavior to exhibit in order to gain friendships. This lesson will integrate the speaking and listening
aspect of friendship along with other behaviors students should look for in a friend in order to have
positive relationships with others. Students will use the literature standards during our discussion of the
story that is read in the YouTube video. Students will use the language strand as they fill out and share the
Friendship Worksheet.

Similar student experiences to connect to the content/topic (relevance): We will begin the lesson by
connecting the friendship topic to the previous guidance lesson about tattling and reporting. Student
experiences that can be connected to the current lessons content are students personal experiences with

Procedure (include teacher and counselor role in the lesson):

1. Review the previous guidance lesson about the difference between tattling and reporting. Ask students to
provide examples of what tattling is and what reporting is.
2. Pretest: Ask students to place their heads down on the desks, and tell them that you are going to ask them
a few questions. Have them raise their hand if they answer yes, keep it down for no. Some of the
questions that could be asked to assess the students prior knowledge of the material are:
a. If youre playing with toys, it's best to keep all the good ones for yourself, so that somebody else doesn't
ruin them.
b. Cheating during a game will make everyone like you.
c. Bullies are someone who is nice to everyone.
d. Tattling is a good way to make friends.
i. ***Make sure to record student answers***
3. Share with students that tattling is one way that they may lose friends and the YouTube video we are
going to watch will share more ways of what not to do if they want to have friends.
4. Watch the YouTube video entitled How to Lose All Your Friends
5. Discuss the story. Examples of questions to ask:
a. What did the girl do during the video that caused her not to have friends?
b. How do you think the other children felt when she did those actions?
c. How did she feel at the end when she was inside and everyone else was playing outside? How do you
know she felt that way?
d. What did she do differently to gain friends?
e. What lesson did she learn at the end?
6. Write on the easel What is a friend?
7. Have students brainstorm and provide examples as a class of what they look for in a friend. This could be
the way their friend talks, the way they act, etc.
8. Once this is completed, have students go to their desk and complete the worksheet about what they look
for in a friend.
9. Posttest: Ask students to place their heads down on their desks again and remind them that hand up means
they answer yes, and hand down means they answer no. Some questions that can be asked to see how
well the lesson worked and if the students understood the objectives are:
a. Being a good listener is a good way to make friends.
b. Someone who pushes you down on the playground is called nice friend.
c. Cheating at soccer will help you to make friends.
d. Someone who tattles a lot would be a really good friend to have.
i. ***Remember to record and compare to pretest data***
10. At the end of the allowed time, have a few students get up in front of the class and share what they drew
and wrote.
