Direct: Teaching the children grace and courtesy in the classroom.
Waiting to hear the other child’s response to their offer of help.
2 1/2 – 3 1/2
Ask one older child to help you show the younger children how to offer help. Let the child know briefly how you plan on showing the lesson. Invite 3-4 children to come participate in your lesson. Show each child where exactly to sit. Have the older child sit down as well. Once the children are seated, you sit so that you can see them all, they all can see you, and yet you are not in front of them.
Tell the children that they can now offer their help to others.
Thank the older child for their help.
Excuse each child at a time, making sure each child has thought of what he would like to de next.
