Perhaps the one of the greatest powers we can instill in our children is the ability to speak up for themselves. This is not always easy for preschool children. They may be shy about speaking in a group or they may all talk at once! As a preschool teacher, you know that your young children often do not have experience with group discussions and activities. You can support their self-awareness and self-esteem by teaching them how to take turns and listen to each other. This simple and effective activity empowers children to take turns listening and speaking. Not an easy thing for preschoolers!
Children learn the importance of the power of knowing when to speak up and be listened to and when to listen while playing a cooperative game.
