Children who know how to cooperate develop healthy, positive social relationships and are more likely to make and maintain friendships. Parents and teachers should offer examples of this behavior from a very early age to encourage this attitude in their child.

Benefits of Cooperative Learning Games

Through play, children are able to learn the meaning of values such as cooperation, understanding this concept as collaboration with others to achieve the same objective or purpose.

The ability to cooperate with others is a skill whose usefulness will accompany the child throughout adulthood. It will be easier for them in adulthood to be empathetic, collaborative people and their relationships will be long-lasting and friendly.

How can we get children to cooperate with each other?

Adults should offer the first inspiration to their children within the family. Children imitate the example of adults, and they will come to understand the meaning of the concept of cooperation if they live it in the home.

Depending on the age and maturity level of the child, he or she may be taught to help with certain household chores. The child can help with tasks such as removing dishes from the table, tidying up toys or keeping the room clean as much as possible.

In the classroom, they can learn how to help other children who need help with homework, or participate in the collection of material at the end of the class, among other tasks. They can also run simple errands for their teachers.

Children are more likely to appreciate the value of collaboration if they are consulted in decision-making that concerns them. They are more involved when asked to give their opinion on the execution plan of pending tasks, such as the organisation of a party.

Children need simple instructions to know unequivocally what is expected of them. If the children are very young, they will not yet have developed a sense of retention and understanding of time frames, and they will also find phrases with ulterior motives or ironic ones alien to them. Similarly, they also need to receive praise or recognition if they are to carry out their duties.

Group activities greatly enhance cooperation among children. This includes everything from team sports to crafts, as well as games and activities where children play different roles in plays that are easy for children to understand.

During the mechanics of the game or activity, they get used to situations such as taking turns doing a task, doing a common task or sharing game elements, which they can then extrapolate to their daily lives.

This is not the only skill we can help children develop through play: at the Akros online shop you have specific toys to increase their memory and ability to concentrate, to stimulate them in learning to read or to help them improve their speech and pronunciation, among others.
