Sharing is an important social skill needed for kindergarten readiness. Children will have to share supplies, desks and the teacher.
Benjamin Franklin said “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.” Here are a few ways you can help you child learn about sharing:
- Model sharing with your spouse or neighbor.
- Share a snack with your child and use the word “share” when you do.
- Involve them in sharing with the community by allowing them to help you collect food for the local food pantry or set aside toys they no longer play with for charity.
- Praise them for their efforts.
