This is a great book to read to discuss why we share. We will discuss how we feel when people share something with us and how we feel when they don't. Students will then be given an ice cream cone and three scoops of ice cream. The class will use the ice cream cone to help organize their ideas so they can compose a letter to Elephant about why heshould share his ice cream based on our discussion. In the cone, students will write, "You should share your ice cream with Piggie because..." Students must come up with three reasons Elephant should share his ice cream. They will put each reason in a scoop of ice cream. When this is completed, they will then write their letter.
