The Sharing Period in First Grade.
Carlson, Thelma
Elementary English, v43 n6 p612-14,618 Oct 1966
A sharing period in the first grade can provide children with many opportunities for developing both personally and educationally (e.g., becoming aware of others' attitudes and expressing themselves orally). Moreover, much can be learned by the teacher about students' interests, needs, and abilities when they are encouraged to "brainstorm" such commonplace subjects as rocks or new shoes, or when they share sensory experiences and materials that they have found on their own. For this most "teachable" moment to be fully utilized, it should be scheduled early in the school day while out-of-school experiences are still fresh in the children's minds. Problems of subject matter and personality conflict can be solved cooperatively with the children by evolving informal guidelines for limiting each child to one subject, for organizing materials, and for listening effectively.
