I Can Take Turns

Switch to Spanish

I Can Take Turns
  1. It is fun to play with toys and do activities at school. Sometimes friends want to play with what I have or I might want something a friend is using. One solution is to take turns. Another solution could be to play together with the toy. We can play together!
  2. If playing with the toy together doesn’t work, taking turns gives each of us some time to play . When I want a turn with a toy or activity, I can use my words and say, "Can I have a turn please?”
  3. We can put our names on a list. This feels fair because everyone gets a turn! We can try a few different turn taking solutions. We can set a timer. When the timer goes off it is my turn. Let’s set a timer for 5 minutes. Then it is your turn.Sometimes it’s not easy to wait and take turns. You might get sad, angry, or frustrated because you really want it to be your turn. Maybe next time I will get a turn.
  4. Sometimes I might need a friend or teacher to help me think of a solution. Can you help me please? If I feel sad, angry, or frustrated, I can take some deep breathes to calm down. I can calmly think of a solution.Waiting is hard, but I can play with something else while I wait my turn . What can you do when you are waiting for a turn? You can have a turn when I am done.
  5. We take turns being called on by the teacher at circle time . There are many ways that we take turns throughout the day. We take turns being the line leader. We take turns playing on the computer.
  6. What are some other times that you take turns at school?
  7. When I take turns, my friends will want to play with me again ! I can take turns!
