A book for every teacher! Here is the key to a happy classroom:

  • Help your students learn social skills that will help them to get along with their classmates.
  • Create a positive and fun filled classroom where everyone can develop confidence and feel good about themselves.
  • Learn strategies, games and activities to help students who are shy or awkward.
  • Follow the author's suggested program, or create your own, from the wealth of ideas that make up Friendly Kids, Friendly Classrooms.

Fantastic book


This book has really helped me manage classroom behaviour. I've used it multiple times and been recommended it by other teachers. This book is another example of how the 90's was the best decade. The book is filled with practical things that can be easily adopted in the classroom. It is now one of my teaching bibles.
