At Elements, we dedicate one day a month to teaching children how to share. The idea is to encourage our students to get in touch with the community, and encourage characteristics such as kindness and generosity. The morning is spent baking cookies and muffins, which are activities the children enjoy very much.
The first month, we encouraged them to offer muffins to passers-by. There were several questions about why they had to give the muffins away, rather than eat them themselves. The teachers used this opportunity to introduce them to the concept of sharing. The next month, though, our students were calling out to passers-by to try the cookies they had baked. The third month, we visited a fire station and police station to share cookies and muffins with the officers there and the activity was a big hit.
