Sharing -2

Foundational

Teachers

Goal: During an educational setting (such as in person classroom, remote learning, etc.), the student will share materials in 8 out of 10 observable opportunities, as measured by a teacher assessment tool.

Objectives:
1. Allow classmates and peers to borrow materials.
2. Ask and receive permission to borrow another student’s materials.
3. Return the borrowed materials in the same condition as when you first borrowed them.

Definitions of Key Terms: Sharing means to give some of what you have to another person and for him/her to do the same.

Questions

  • What does it mean to share?
  • Why is it important to share?
  • What happens if no one shares?
  • Should we be forced to share?
  • Is it important to validate feelings about sharing?

Discuss with students what it means to share. Review the discussion point questions.


Possible activities to review the discussion points or use your own:

Think. Pair. Share: The teacher will pose questions related to the discussion points. Explain to students that the purpose of the activity is to think about the question and activate prior knowledge. The teacher will model the procedure to facilitate student understanding.

  • T (Think): Teacher begins by asking a specific question using the discussion topics.
  • P (Pair): Each student should be paired with another student, small group or work with a teacher. Pairs write brief answers on sticky notes or scrap paper.
  • S (Share): Students share their thinking with their partner. Teacher then leads a whole-group conversation using students’ answers.

SEL Categories Activity:

  • Ask students to create a list of words associated with the topic (give them 2-5 minutes to complete).
  • Once time is up, ask each student to share a word or thought from their list.
  • Other students must cross that word or thought off their list.
  • Continue the process until all words or thoughts have been listed.

Directions for In-Person or Virtual Learning: You have three options for students to complete this lesson.

  • Option 1: Print the Student Activity Sheet for each student. Complete the lesson as a group and assign the activity sheet to the students.
  • Option 2: Click the Student link to access the activity sheet electronically and post to your Learning Management System (if your school has one) or send the link to the student. The student may complete the activity sheet electronically within the classroom on a shared computer or device.
  • Option 3: Click the Student link to access the activity sheet electronically and send the link to the student. The student may access the link from a home computer, chromebook, iPad or other device.

Activity 1: Thoughts on Sharing

Place the following sentence starters (or create your own) on the board or chart paper. Ask students to take a strip of notebook paper and complete each sentence.

Then, ask for students to add their suggested sentence ending to each starter displayed. Discuss with students the various sentence endings.

Materials Needed:
  • Piece of notebook paper torn into smaller pieces for each student
  • Chart paper or interactive board

Sentence starters:

If I share, then...

If I don’t share, then...

If you force me to share, then I will feel...

Activity 2: Situations

Review the key points from the discussion and Activity 1. Ask students to think of all the situations in which sharing is important and record the list on the board or chart paper for all to see.

Materials Needed:
  • Student Activity Sheet A
  • Pencil for each group

For any suggestions that involve sharing materials, be sure to discuss how to return the items and why it is important that the condition be the same as when you borrowed.

Ask students to complete Student Activity Sheet A. Review their answers as a group when all have finished.

Student Activity Sheet A

Directions: Make a list of situations when it is easy to share.

Example: When you have two of something


Make a list of situations when it might be hard to share.

Example: When someone asks to ride my new bike.

Activity 3: Comic Strip Worksheet

Review the key points from Activities 1 and 2. Discuss with students how best to borrow materials from another person. Be sure to talk about just taking materials from someone else and how to ask and receive permission. You may also have students role play situations that highlight these points as well.

Materials Needed:
  • Student Activity Sheet B - 1 per student
  • Pencil for each student

Allow students time to complete Student Activity Sheet B. Discuss their answers when all have finished.

Student Activity Sheet B

Study the comic strips below. Circle the answers that show the characters sharing.

Lesson Extension: Listening Comprehension and Grammar Review

Explain that a script is a form of dialogue writing between characters in a movie, play, or broadcast. Students should listen carefully as the teacher plays the example scripts from the immersive reader. Replay the script if needed. Allow students time to answer the questions on Student Activity Sheet C.

Materials Needed:
  • Student Activity Sheet C - 1 per student
  • Pencil for each student
  • Student Activity Sheet D - 1 per student
  • Red and purple colored pencil or crayon

After students have finished, discuss the listening comprehension questions together.

After completing the listening comprehension portion of this activity, provide students a copy of Student Activity Sheet D. Point out to students the features of script text that indicate which character is talking. Remind students that this is a dialogue between characters.

Allow students time to complete Student Activity Sheet D.

Display the script using the immersive reader and highlight the nouns in the script. Students should self check their work to determine if they correctly named two nouns. Repeat the process for verbs and the bonus question.

If time allows students may partner together and role play the script.

Example script of demonstrates sharing appropriately:
Beth: Wow! Those cookies look good!
Tori: I made them myself.
Beth: They smell great.
Tori: Oh, they do? Would you like one? Help yourself!

Example script of demonstrates sharing inappropriately:
Beth: Those cookies smell good.
Tori: Yes, they do!
Beth: Did you make them yourself!
Tori: Yes, I did. They are all for me. See you later.

Read Aloud Recommendations: Completing a read aloud with students is a great way for them to see and learn social skills as well as incorporating reading skills. Below are some books that could be used to reinforce the concept. Read and discuss as appropriate for level and as time allows throughout the lesson.

  • Feathers for Peacock, Jacqueline Jules
  • Julia Loves Dolls, Sally Hass
  • Mine! Mine! Mine!, Shelly Becker
  • Not Fair, Won’t Share, Sue Graves
  • Share and Take Turns, Cheri J. Meiners
  • Sharing a Shell, Julia Donaldson
  • Sharing is Caring, Uncle Amon
  • Should I Share My Ice Cream?, Mo Willems
  • The Doorbell Rang, Pat Hutchins
  • The Rainbow Fish, Marcus Pfister

Student Activity Sheet C

Directions: Think about the script read/played for the class and complete the questions below.

  1. Who are the characters in this script?
  2. What did Tori make?
  3. How did the cookies smell?
  4. How do you think Beth felt when Tori shared with her?
  5. How do you feel when others share with you?

Student Activity Sheet D

Directions: In the scripts below, circle in purple two nouns that name a person and one noun that names a place. Circle in red two verbs. BONUS: Circle the punctuation marks and label each.

Remember:

A noun names a person, place, thing, or idea.

A verb names describe an action, a state, or an occurrence.

Example script of demonstrates sharing appropriately:
Beth: Wow! Those cookies look good!
Tori: I made them myself.
Beth: They smell great.
Tori: Oh, they do? Would you like one? Help yourself

Example script of demonstrates sharing inappropriately:
Beth: Those cookies smell good.
Tori: Yes, they do!
Beth: Did you make them yourself!
Tori: Yes, I did. They are all for me. See you later.

Application Activity

Review and discuss example scripts from the lesson extension.

In small groups, have the students create scripts demonstrating sharing and examples of not sharing. Use the script sheet to create students' scripts.

Materials Needed:
  • Script sheet for each group
  • Pencil for each student

Have students record their scripts using the SiLAS software. Remind students to name and save their work. Premiere the movies with the group members at the end of each session.

Ideas for modifying this activity based on your students’ needs:

  • create a script as a class
  • pair or group students so that skill levels are varied and assign each a role or task that uses their skill
  • create the script by recording the dialogue with a phone or other recording device

Topic Checkout

Review the key points from the previous activities with students.

Ask students to complete the Student Topic Checkout. Discuss their answers when all students have finished.

Materials Needed:
  • Student Topic Checkout - 1 per student
  • A pencil for each student

Student Topic Checkout

Directions: Complete the following questions.

  1. What does it mean to share?
  2. Do you have to share?
  3. Why should you share?
