Kids learn by doing, and this guide offers everything teachers need to help students work better in groups and share with others.
Use these classroom activities for teaching the skills of working as a team and sharing with others. This guide was written to be used with the storybook Teamwork Isn’t My Thing, and I Don’t Like to Share, which focuses on working together both at school and at home. Most of the activities can be used independently, without the storybook. Each activity includes:
- Instructions for each activity
- List of materials when needed
- Activity Sheets
- Homework ideas
More than a dozen activities include reproducible pages and reward coupons in full color that can be used to recognize students who master and use the skills appropriately.
Any teacher with students in grades K-5 who squabble when they need to share, or who have trouble working together, can use these creative ideas to bring more cooperation and caring to the classroom. Digital content of forms and worksheets are available to download.
