C.H. Norton’s Newest Feature- The Buddy Bench By The Climber



Recess Time Thoughts For Many Students:

→ What will I do outside? Who can I play with?

→ What if my friends aren’t around that day?  What if no one will play with me?  

→ What if I don’t feel like doing what my friends are doing that day?

→ What if no one will “let” me join their game or invite me to play their activity?


Look Around:

→ See if you can find anybody to play with and ask if you can join.


Try the “Buddy Bench”:

→ If your attempt did not work out, take a seat on “The Buddy Bench” by the playground equipment.

→ If somebody comes and invites you to play, say “yes” and join them … perhaps you just made a new friend!

    Be open to a new adventure!

→ Two individual people sitting on the bench can invite one another to play.


Play Again:

→ You have made a friend from the Buddy Bench, ask the person to play again.

→ The bench is hopefully not going to be used by the same people every day. It is a tool to help make and keep friends.


Be Caring:

→ Remember to check the bench regularly to see if somebody needs a buddy that day and be a great, inclusive leader and ask

   them to join in on your fun!
