Teaching kids to share toys is always on my list. Some kids do it easily, others not so much. This social story explains that toys in the classroom do not belong to anyone but the classroom or the teacher. We emphasize that it is expected to share. Sharing is explained in that means more than one person can play with a toy at once (toys that allow for sharing - like legos, blocks, magatiles, action figures, etc...). We do some basic perspective taking by showing the expressions and thought bubbles when we do unexpected behaviors, such as screaming and being bossy about toys. Also we like to mention that when you ask someone if you can play with a specific toy that someone else is playing with, they may say "yes" or they may say "no" and we need to stay calm when someone tells us no. Teachers are a great help in learning to share with enforcing turn taking, using timers, and making other cooperative behavior suggestions.
