A Teacher Becomes More Interesting When Teaching Manners in Elementary School

Storytelling is what sets you apart as a teacher.  Think about it.  As a teacher, I don’t need to tell you how much younger children love it when someone reads a story to them.

This works for elementary school students too…only you don’t need to read to them….TELL them a story.

A story about you and an experience you had.  Maybe you made an “etiquette” mistake.  Maybe you made the right decision with choosing to use your good manners in a certain situation.

Good or bad, share your story.  Make it real for this age group.

I can promise, they will sit up and listen to “your” story.  It will make you more interesting.

The moment you share your story is the moment you take control of your classroom and become more interesting as a teacher.  

Manners are not about rules so don’t teach it in that way.  Share a real life experience.

They will remember it.  Understand it.  Use it.
