The Buddy Bench
Wanted to help his classmates to not feel lonely
Students feeling lonely at recess have someplace to go
When other kids see someone on the buddy bench, they can go and ask them to play or talk
“If you are feeling lonely and/or without anything to do, you can come sit on the Buddy Bench and another student will
come up to you to ask if you want to play or talk!”
Rules of the Buddy Bench1. If you are sitting on the Buddy Bench, and someone
asks you to chat or play, you must say yes.
2. If two people are sitting on the Buddy Bench, they can ask each other if they want to chat or play.
