- Film Clifford the Big Red Dog to project.

- Files of the boarding schools. (Annexes)

- Colors, pencils, Big Red Dog print.

1. We begin with the screening of the film, beforehand we give some guidelines for taking notes during the film, moments or phrases that identify them or catch their attention.

2. Once we have finished, we reflect by listening to their annotations. One id

Friendship plays an important role, reflects love and trust,

 is responsible for your actions and lasts even if there is no direct contact and brings out the best in you.

FEEL: We review our skills, actions, what our friendships are like.

We ask ourselves:

- Do we have a friendly relationship with God?

- Are we supportive and fair before the moments that deserve it?

- Have you reflected on how a colleague feels when constantly suffering bullying, if he/she is your friend, how does it change the way you intervene?

- What can we do when we have discriminatory thoughts due to differences in cultures, politics, status, among others?

IMAGINE. Value the opportunities of each one.

Now we observe the reality of other girls, boys and young people in our boarding schools where, being far from their families, they miss them and need to see the love of the "big red dog". And that they also get it from their teachers, classmates and friendships that are generated on a daily basis. (The following videos can be screened: , y

Color your big dog and write a message or a magical wish for humanity, family or magic that you want to happen in you, this written inside the heart.
