Friendship Behaviors with The Recess Queen

The Recess Queen is a great book to use to talk about friendship behaviors.  If you don't have this book you should definitely consider adding it to your resources.  There are a ton of great lesson ideas on TPT.  I have made connections to my favorite FREE ones below.

Mean Jean dominates the playground.  Everyone is afraid of Mean Jean.  "Nobody swung until Mean Jean swung. Nobody kicked until Mean Jean kicked.  Nobody bounced until Mean Jean bounced."  Mean Jean is scary and and nobody plays with her.  But when Katie Sue, a teeny girl, moves in she changes everything.  Mean Jean stops yelling and bossing and pushing and bullying and learns to play with the other kids.   You can purchase The Recess Queen HERE.
