In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather children where they can all see the posted newsprint and say, in your own words:
I know a little bit about roosters and farms, but I could learn a lot more if I could hear what you know. I bet each of you knows a bit, and together we know quite a lot. Let us share what we each know.
Start the process by telling the children something you know such as, roosters do not fly, or roosters eat seeds. Then ask for volunteers to contribute information they know about roosters and farms. Write their contributions on newsprint. When all have contributed, read or ask a child who is a confident reader to read the list aloud. Point out that together, the group knows a lot about roosters and farms. Tell the children that the more practice we have listening to what other people have to say, the easier and more fun it is to share the gift of learning together.
