A few weeks ago I wrote about the importance of teaching our children about sharing. I've gotten a lot of good feedback on that post.
A teacher friend of mine suggested that I as I write about topics related to giving back and philanthropy that I develop worksheets that can be used in the classroom. She told me of her struggles with finding the time to develop short little exercises that can be used in character education efforts. She also told me that she would do more if she had access to brief exercises that she could have on file to use when she has a moment or two to fill in.
So with her great suggestion, I have developed a short exercise for sharing. You can be as creative as you would like with this but a simple way to use this is to pass out individual copies, give the class 5-10 minutes to complete, ask the children to share their answers to specific questions to create a lively discussion on the importance of sharing.
So without further adieu..... Click below to download the worksheet. It is in PDF format, so you will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader to open it.
Let me know what you think of this and ways it can be improved. Also if you have a creative way to use it or have a great story about how you used it, please be sure to leave a comment. As others find their way to this post, they could benefit from you "sharing" your experience.
