The COOL TO BE FRIENDS programme facilitates the healthy development of intrapersonal and interpersonal skills between learners. It focuses specifically on teaching the values of kindness, respect and fairness. When we practice these values, we approach all people and animals in friendship and peacefully resolve fights, arguments or disagreements.
Colourful, fun and thought-provoking integration pages and activities that allow learners to more fully integrate the lesson; ‘stop and think’ sections that encourage honest self-reflection and problem solving; ‘with my family’ sections that stimulate healthy conversations and SEL development at home.
Can be used as content for the following CAPS Gr 4 Life Skills topics: Development of self: Emotions, Personal experience of working in a group, Personal strengths, Dealing with conflict, Bullying.
