Assemble a book containing as many sheets of drawing paper as you have students. Title the book "Who's Being Friendly?" Each day assign a different student to be in charge of the "Friendly" book. The student in charge watches for friendly deeds that occur around the classroom. He or she then writes in the book the names of classmates who have been especially kind to another and draws a picture to show one of those deeds. Continue until every student has a turn at being in charge of the book.
