It helps to talk- and especially to listen- to them; their stories about the depression will help us understand why they saved everything, and stories about the war to undestand why they shudder everytime a car back fired. I wish they had told me more about their dreams and fears, their triumphs and heart breaks, but now that I have children I realize how very hard it is to share such things. No, I don't think we really can know fully. So I think the best we can do is share and hear what we can, and for what must be left unsaid, lets just look on each other with kindness and remember that, imperfect as they-and we-are, we do love each other.
What and who are friends? Ask the class open-ended questions about making friends. The story Tell them about the book and explain its use in making friends. Friend-making skills Explain that after reading and discussing the book that they will have an opportunity to practice the skills.
During the story, ask guided and open-ended questions for the students to answer or think about. What does Jim want or who does he want to meet? Who are some of the people in his class? What does Jim enjoy doing?
Who does Jim talk to? What did he say? After the story, question the students about Jim's feelings: How did Jim feel before he entered his class? When was Jim happy during the story? When was Jim nervous during the story? How do you know? Present steps for making a new friend. Identify someone to whom you can introduce yourself.

Independent practice follow-up activities or practice outside of class. Have students talk about where they can use these steps outside of the classroom. Do a writing activity that summarizes story or student's thoughts about friendship.
Read a second story and have students identify each of the steps. Summary The lesson was successful in many ways. First, students maintained attention to the book and enjoyed hearing the story. The story motivated students to participate actively: Almost all of them were willing to practice skills in pairs and with the author.
Only 1 student was unwilling to participate and preferred not to work with a partner. Second, the students were able to relate to feelings of fear and nervousness like the character Jim in the story and readily conveyed these feelings during the lesson and in the pre- and post-tests.
The teacher should also consider several other factors when using a lesson that incorporates reading, active participation, and work with a partner. First, the students in this setting were not able to read the steps for making friends as they were written out on the overhead projector.
The steps had to be repeated for the students and modeled a number of times in order for students to recall what to do next. Pictures would be one way to circumvent student literacy levels. Second, follow-up activities to the story may be used to further reinforce skills.
