Taking home the sharing can is a Big Deal to those of preschool age. At Matthew’s preschool, the teachers have a can with popsicle sticks. Each popsicle stick has the name of a student. After the sharing can has been shared, the teacher picks a popsicle stick with the name of a student who will be the next person to take the sharing can home. It’s at this point that many children break down in disappointed tears that they were not the one chosen.
