Resources for Teachers: Addressing Sharing in class

Cultivating the soft skill of sharing in preschoolers is essential for their overall development and social interaction.

The practice of sharing not only contributes to a positive classroom environment but also establishes the foundation for fundamental social and emotional skills. By fostering the act of sharing from an early age, children experience significant benefits that impact their personal and social growth.

Here are five key reasons to focus on developing sharing in class:

  • Fosters Positive Relationships: The act of sharing creates emotional connections among children, promoting friendly and supportive relationships.
  • Develops Empathy: Sharing teaches children to empathize with others, fostering essential empathetic skills.
  • Strengthens Collaboration Skills: The practice of sharing encourages a collaborative environment, where children work together to achieve common goals.
  • Establishes Foundations for Conflict Resolution: Learning to share also involves learning to resolve conflicts peacefully, fostering essential problem-solving skills.
  • Promotes a Sense of Community: By sharing resources and experiences, children develop a sense of belonging and community in the classroom, creating an enriching environment for learning and socialization.

Below, you'll find educational resources available in our educational app that will help you create an enriching and enjoyable classroom experience for your students.

Listen to the story with your students and then use it to have a conversation in class using the following conversation topics regarding the act of sharing:

  1. Importance of Forethought: Learning about the importance of planning and forethought, as the ant did by storing food for the winter.
  2. Generosity and Sharing: Understanding generosity and the act of sharing, as demonstrated by the ant offering food to the cicada.
  3. Collaboration and Teamwork: Exploring how working together can overcome challenges, such as the collaboration between the ant and the cicadato build the cooking school.
  4. Recognition of Talents: Identifying and valuing individual talents, such as the cicada culinary talent, and how they can contribute to the common good.
  5. Celebration of Achievements: Understanding the importance of celebrating collective achievements and efforts, highlighted by the successful opening of the cooking school in the forest.

These conversation points can help students reflect on themes such as friendship, acceptance, and the importance of being authentic.

Activities to do in class:

1) Creating a Mini Cooking School:

  • Objective: Foster collaboration and creativity.
  • Activity: Divide the children into small groups and provide them with materials to create their own mini cooking school for insects. They can use cardboard, leaves, and other recycled materials. Then, the groups can share their creations and explain how their imaginary cooking school would work.

2) Food Treasure Hunt:

  • Objective: Reinforce the idea of foresight and planning.
  • Activity: Organize a treasure hunt in the classroom or in a designated area of the playground. Hide small images of food (leaves, seeds, fruits) in different places beforehand. The children, acting as "ants," must work in teams to find and collect the food. Then, discuss how planning and food search can help prepare for the future.
