Teach Good Manners in Your Classroom

Teach Good Manners in Your Classroom

You know the importance of teaching good manners, life skills and character in your classroom. We can no longer take the stand that life skills and manners should be taught at home.  Yes, I agree, manners should be taught at home but in many cases, they are not.

Every child deserves to learn manners, don’t you think?

When you teach manners in your classroom, you take a massive stand and declare:

  • You value the well-being of your students
  • You want to make an impact on their social and emotional needs
  • You empower yourself by choosing a manners curriculum that allows you to customize a plan to teach manners and social skills
  • You are ready to transform your classroom and your students

Tips and Topics to Teach Good Manners in Your Classroom

Middle Schoolers

Here are a few tips and topics to start teaching manners in your classroom.  These tips can be used in any grade level.

Why Manners Matter:  Start with the “why”.  Have you downloaded our Free Lesson Plan?  We provide a link by grade level below.  You may use this in your classroom.  This guides you on how to get started and provides you with the activities and handouts to get started.

Your goal is to teach and your students on “why” it is important to use good manners.  You will have a discussion with your students to talk about kindness, how it feels on the inside when we use good manners, why it makes us feel confident, empathy, the action to take to make others feel comfortable and more.

Eye Contact: When you teach eye contact, you will see an immediate difference. Children need to told and shown in many cases.  You will see their face light up when you teach eye contact.  If you teach Preschool or Kindergarten, kneel down on your knees and actually look at them in the eye to show them what it looks like.

Eye contact shows others we are confident, are listening and we care.

Handshakes:  Have you considered starting your day with a handshake and greeting each student with a handshake in the morning? Doing this provides so many teachable moments. You can teach eye contact, handshakes and conversation skills within a few seconds for each student.

It is not a secret that teaching manners in your classroom will transform your students.
Maybe you have thought about teaching manners in your classroom already…only to get tripped up by all the research you need to do such as:
  • Creating the lesson plans
  • Finding the handouts that are relevant and age appropriate
  • The suggested dialogue to make it easy for you
  • And of course all the other things that it will lead to such as the supplies that you might need
The thought of it might make you want to hide in the teacher’s lounge and not come out for a few days! Especially when you have so many other things to think about such as your lesson plans, reading programs, setting your classroom up and not to mention getting your own family ready for school to start.
I have been teaching manners to children for years so I have learned a think or two and I am about to share the process with you.
Today, I am making an announcement that will save the day. This is a BIG DEAL. You will not want to miss this.

Etiquette Tips: Getting Children Ready for Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day

Etiquette Tips: Getting Children Ready for “Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day”

Social Emotional Learning | Character Education | Life Skills

The “Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day” program is a national organization that partners with companies to host our children in the workplace. The program offers children the chance to see what happens in an office environment.  Many observe their parents at work.

This year the event is Thursday, April 25, 2019.

Are your students taking the day off to be with their parents?  If you are a parent, are your children heading to work with you on Thursday?

 Etiquette Tips on How to Guide Students to a Successful and Fun Day at the Office

Practice eye contact, a good handshake, and standing up for introductions. Explain to your students about the importance of getting along with others.

Conversation starters: They will be meeting new children and co-workers. To include others and be included is very important. Popular questions: Where do you go to school? Do you play sports? How many pets do you have? What is your favorite movie?

Keep in mind the office dress code. Remember first impressions are very important. A conservative outfit is the best choice in this situation.

Table manners: Chew with your mouth closed.  The napkin belongs in the lap and elbows off the table.

Have your students/child write thank you notes: to the personnel that were involved in making it a special day.

Elementary School Lesson Plans and Tips to Teach Eye Contact and Empathy

Helping You Make a Meaningful Mark on Today’s Youth

Social Emotional Learning | Character Education | Social Skills 

Your job as an elementary teacher is important.  I know because my mother taught second grade for over 36 years. 

She worked all the time.  I even remember going to the store for teachers to buy supplies.

A great deal falls on your shoulders.

Test scores, parent conferences, not to mention your own family.

That is why today, we would like to share tips on how to teach eye contact and empathy in your classroom.

 Yes, the two lesson plans can be combined. 

Lesson plan introductions

Here is how to teach both eye contact and empathy in your classroom.

I was working in the classroom with elementary teachers.  One specifically asked for a lesson plan on saying “excuse me”.  She went on to tell me that her students will say it and keep moving.  She pointed out the importance of having the student make eye contact while saying “excuse me”.

I have been teaching it this way ever since.  It was a teachable moment for me.

Whether you are saying “excuse me” because you need to interrupt or because you have stepped on a toe or need someone to move, it is so important to look in them in the eye…..make contact.  Here is why:  so the other person knows you mean it.  Yes, it is that simple.  It is a gesture that makes a difference.

Tip: Teacher to Teacher

Teaching eye contact and empathy at the same time is easy to set up as a role-playing activity.  Eye contact and empathy are an every day gesture.  It needs to be pointed out to your students when they do it….naturally during their daily activities and interaction with other students. You can also point this out when you make the gesture of eye contact and express empathy.

As an educator, you know how important social skills are for a child’s success.

Children who are polite, well spoken, and attentive to others find it easier to get along with their peers and make a positive impression on the adults in their lives.
As a result, more opportunities come their way, laying the foundation for future success in life.

Yet too many children are not being taught proper manners or other valuable social skills at home. Which means it’s up to us as educators to equip them with these important life tools – and help them grow up to be responsible, caring, successful global citizens.

Now you can help students improve their behavior in as little as 10 minutes a day… a week… or month.
