Relationship skills are the ability to form and maintain meaningful and healthy relationships with other individuals. They can be romantic, professional, teammates, or friendships. Important components of healthy relationships of any kind include open communication, listening, trust, collaboration, compromise, and problem solving. It is also crucial for children to understand what an UNhealthy relationship looks like.
For this activity, the teacher will read aloud the book A Letter to Amy by Jack Ezra Keats. After discussing the book, students will create a 3 cell storyboard that illustrates a scenario of a positive and healthy relationship. The example provided only includes illustrations and speech bubbles, but teachers may add a writing component by adding description boxes and headings if they choose.
