All parents want our children to be generous and supportive, to help the people around them without asking for anything in return. However, in order for them to become so, we must make them understand what generosity is and work with this value. To do this, once again, we turn to children's stories and poetry, two very useful tools for educate in values to our kids. On this occasion we propose a beautiful short poem entitled "The girl's slippers".
Following the verses, we also propose other stories, poems, legends and fables with which to continue working on the value of generosity and solidarity with children.
scared, one to another,
the girl no longer wants them
because it says they are broken.
But they are almost new!
Why do you want to throw them away?
- says the mother to the girl -
You could give them away.
the girl who lives next door,
it's a poor family
Have you never noticed?
His mother's words
they have made him reflect,
her little blue shoes
the neighbor will give.
And her new sneakers
because they are no longer broken,
at the foot of his bed
they will continue for longer.
The slippers were heard
when they saw that the girl
with them he went to wear shoes.
Before continuing to talk with your child about the value of generosity, we propose some easy reading comprehension questions with which you will know if the child has paid attention to reading. In case you don't know the answers, we suggest that you read the poem again, this time a little more slowly so that you have time to understand everything that is written. To get their attention, you can read it by putting music on it, you can each read a verse, you can draw it while you read it ... Surely now they will know how to answer these questions.
1. Why doesn't the girl want the slippers?
2. The neighbor needs the shoes because her family has no money, true or false?
3. The girl decides to give the neighbor the slippers, true or false?
4. Why did you decide to stay in your new shoes longer?
Below you will find more resources to continue working on the value of generosity with children.
