Sometimes we need the help of others to do something well or simply to learn how to do it. Therefore, collaboration between people is essential. But how do we teach it to our children?
Teach teamwork and the importance of collaboration is very easy if we do it through children's stories. This account: The river pathteaches children the benefits that can be gained by choosing to cooperate with other peers.
Every evening, the river path was crowded with animals, all in the same direction, causing great traffic jams and leading to numerous discussions.
One afternoon a giraffe said to a little lion:
— If you go up to my neck, we will leave one more hole and a little earlier we will arrive.
And the lion jumped on his neck.
The next day, the lion did the same and said to a zebra:
- If you get on my back, we will leave one more hole and a little earlier we will arrive.
And the zebra, although she hesitated for a few seconds, jumped up and climbed on the lion's back.
The next day, the zebra did the same and said to a rabbit:
- If you climb on my back, we will leave one more hole and a little earlier we will arrive. And the rabbit jumped contentedly on top of the zebra.
One day later, the rabbit did the same and said to a mouse:
— If you travel between my ears, we will leave one more hole and a little earlier we will arrive.
And the mouse jumped up and happily clung to the rabbit's ears.
The next afternoon, the mouse did the same and said to a cricket:
- If you get on my queue, we will leave one more hole and a little earlier we will arrive. And the singing cricket climbed up the mouse's tail very happy.
And thanks to the great idea of the giraffe, the path of the river, little by little it was cleared and, all the animals arrived before their destination and stopped arguing.
Reading comprehension is almost as important as learning to read itself. To help your children get into the routine of understanding what they read, we suggest you ask them these questions about the text:
- How many animals can you remember?
- Which animal initiated the proposal to collaborate so that there would be fewer animals on the trail?
- Did all the animals reach their destination?
