9 © Copyright Janet M. Bender, To have friends, it helps to focus on others more than on yourself. Call the person by name often. Give sincere compliments. Accept the person the way they are. Apologize when you are wrong. Respect their feelings.

10 © Copyright Janet M. Bender, If you feel shy or nervous about meeting new friends, it might be because you think… “I don’t know what will happen.” “I might say or do the wrong things.” “They might not want to be my friend.” “No one will like me.”

11 © Copyright Janet M. Bender, You might want to try an easy friendship starter like one of these: “Hello.” “Hi, my name is_______. “Would you like to play?” “What’s your name?” “What’s up?” Write a note. Share something.

12 © Copyright Janet M. Bender, Now we’re going to play a fun game called “Friendship Bingo.” 1. Fill in the center box with your name and favorite activity. 2. When I give the signal to start, find someone in this group who fits the description in each box. 3. Ask him/her to sign his/her name in the box. 4. Try to find a different person for each box. 5. I will give you a signal when it is time to return to your seats.
