My Friend… Stories


Why do this project?

Friends are a very important part of children’s lives, so making a book about a friend will be something they will really enjoy doing and sharing with the community of writers in their classroom. There are so many opportunities here – to entertain, be funny or sad, make a record of something that happened that they don’t want to forget, and reflect on friendship itself. What could be better than to make something which can be given to a friend as a gift, in token of the friendship? This is writing that brings people together.
