Cooperation is such an important skill for students to learn and practice. It plays an essential role so many different aspects of life from family, career, etc. Teaching cooperation will help students problem solve, work together, build friendships, trust others, resolve conflicts, and achieve common goals.
This cooperation resource is part of a Character Education or Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Curriculum that you can use for the entire year. It's filled with meaningful lessons, materials, hands-on activities, anchors charts, bulletin board materials, parent letters, and more. The materials in this resource will cover your Character Education or SEL time for the entire month!
**A digital version is also included for use with Google Classroom.**
With the digital version, you have the option to go 100% paperless.
This is a comprehensive resource that has wide variety of tools to teach and promote cooperation in your classroom. Included in this print and digital resource:
Cooperation Pacing Guide: This pacing guide organizes your entire month of lessons. It will help you plan and set aside enough time to complete the curriculum with your students.
Cooperation Parent Letter: Use this letter to get parents and other family members involved so they can reinforce the character education lessons at home. This letter provides parents with tools to help parents or guardians explain, model, and praise cooperation at home. Additionally, it includes a list of books and movies that promote cooperation.
Cooperation Read Alouds: Choose to read any or all of the read aloud texts that teach different aspects of cooperation. Each book makes for a great discussion. I’ve included links to each book for you to check out.
Cooperation Bulletin Boards: Introduce cooperation to your students with a beautiful bulletin board display. Keep this display in your classroom for the entire month that you are teaching cooperation. Everything you need to create the display is included. I also include pictures of completed examples for you to follow.
Cooperation Anchor Chart: Introduce cooperation and create a useful reference for your students. It’s a great way to keep learning accessible to students. Students can refer back to this anchor chart as they respond to questions, work independently, and contribute to discussions during your SEL or Character Education lessons throughout the month. A printable version of the anchor chart is also included.
Cooperation Posters: Define cooperation for students and keep it posted around your room. There are six different posters that define cooperation. Each poster has a definition with different clip art that shows an example of cooperation.
Cooperation Calendar: Use this calendar to challenge your students to cooperate each day. It is editable so you can change the daily challenges or the month that students will complete it. Additionally, you can edit this resource to make different versions of the calendar so students are doing different challenges than their classmates each day.
Doodle Reflection Page: This doodle reflection page is a creative way to get students to think about what cooperation is and ways they can show it. It includes reflection questions, examples of cooperation, quotes, and doodles for students to color.
Partner Draw Cooperation Activity: In this printable activity, students will work together to create a cohesive drawing. They must cooperate to plan a design, take turns, give encouragement, and work together!
Tallest Tower Cooperation Activity: In this activity, you'll divide students into groups (of 3-5) and challenge each group to build the tallest tower they can with index cards. However, there’s a twist: each person has to build the tower with one hand behind their back.
Cooperation Quilt Activity: In this printable activity, students draw an example of cooperation in the middle of the quilt. In each corner, students answer how they would cooperate in each situation. Last, students color their quilt, cut along the outside of the quilt, and attach them to a sheet of colored paper. Each students' square can be combined to make a large classroom quilt display.
Quote of the Week: Each week, discuss a new quote about cooperation with your students. Quote of the week includes five different quotes. For each quote, I’ve included an activity page with three short-answer questions to help students reflect on the quote’s meaning. Each quote is available in a speech bubble that you can print for use on a bulletin board or for hanging around your classroom. The discussion questions are on a separate page. There is also an option to print the quote and discussion question on a single page.
Cooperation Scenarios: I created these scenarios to allow your students to place themselves in new situations and think about cooperation in different ways. These scenarios are a great way to inspire meaningful conversations in your classroom. You can display the scenarios on your bulletin board for a class discussion or print the scenarios and allow students to work in groups or independently.
Reader’s Theatre: Readers theater will help with fluency, comprehension, and speaking and while studying character education. There are three scripts for students to read and perform:
- Road Trip: In this story, students will play members of the Murphy family on a road trip. Unfortunately, the family car stalls, but the Murphy family jumps into action. Students will learn how to cooperate as a family and overcome a problem.
- Scouts Who Serve: In this story, students will play members of a scout group who need to come up with an idea for a service project. Their scout leader, Captain Terry, helps them figure out a project that incorporates something each scout is passionate about. This play is a great example of how to cooperate and contribute to a group project.
- Coyote Brings Fire: In this story, students will play different characters in a folktale. This story explains how a group of animals works together to steal the secret of fire and save humans from freezing in the winter. By the end of this story, your students will see how cooperation requires everyone to play a part and contribute.
Writing Prompts + Publishing Pages: There are five writing prompts that help students to reflect and write about cooperation. They include writing about how people cooperate in school, how cooperation would be important at a new job, a time you have to cooperate with someone to achieve something, a story about two enemies who had to cooperate to reach a common goal, and a story about how what happens when parts of your body stop cooperating with each other.
