Media Center: Friends And Family Board
How to Use the Friends and Family Board in the Media Center
The Friends and Family Board builds community and connection, and links the home family with the School Family.
The Friends and Family Board in the Media Center will include pictures of Media Center staff and others whom the children will come in contact with while in the Media Center. For example, if Speech Therapists and English Language Learners meet in the Media Center, those professionals’ photos would be included on the board. Update the images as needed.
Creating the School Family provides extensive background information and activities for your Friends and Family Board. In Shubert’s New Friend, Shubert takes a photo of his new classmate to include on the Friends and Family Board.
Many songs support the Friends and Family Board, including “I Like to Be with You” on Songs for I Love You Rituals Volume 2, “All Together,” “Friendship Chant,” People to People” and “My School Family” on It Starts in the Heart, “In Every One of Us,” “Love is a Circle” and “We All Count” on Kindness Counts; and “You are Heart,” “Friends Connect” and “Team of Two” on Brain Boogie Boosters.
