November - Sharing

Starting April 2021 and lasting for one year, each month the Scappoose Public Library will spotlight a new social-emotional skill for early learners. From empathy to responsibility to resiliency, we'll focus on some most important skills for your little one to practice. We'll have books to read together, activities for kids to explore, and information for parents. Thank you to the NW Early Learning Hub for a generous grant which will help fund this endeavor! November is about Sharing.

Sharing is fun!  Color this cute little kitty and their clothes, cut them out and practice sharing with a friend.  Take turns dressing up the cat and acting out stories. The paper doll was created by Cozy Pouch.

Engage with your child about Sharing

  • Be a good role model by sharing with your child. Invite them to share some of your favorite treat, offer to share a fun book with them or tell them you'd like to share half of the coziest blanket. Tell them why you enjoy sharing with them.
  • When you see your child sharing be sure to acknowledge their success. Don't just tell them they are "being good", but use descriptive praise. You might say something like "Did you see the smile on Jane's face when you let her play with your firetruck? She really liked that!"
  • Set your child up for success. Before they have a playdate take some time to talk about which toys they are okay with sharing. If there are some toys they do not want to share, put those toys away. It's okay for your child to not want to share things that are special to them, the same way you have special items you wouldn't want to share.
