Last month I focused on how to communicate with your child This week in May my focus will be on Virtues Education.
” A courteous and well-behaved child is truely a gem.”–Dominique
One of the biggest battle I face daily is dealing with disruptive and badly behaved kids. These few weeks the topic that I will be teaching in school is – Right or Wrong.
On Friday we approached this topic by getting the groups in class to watch the following classic movie on ” Mind your Manners”
After viewing the movie we had a short group activity. Each group was given 4 questions to answer.
- Who (in your opinion) is the best behaved student in class?
- Why do you like him/her?
- What did he/she do that makes you recommend him as the best behaved student?
I was surprised that the common points that all the groups raised were
- He/She was friendly and helpful
- Listens attentively to teacher in class and does his work
- Smiles and talks to me.
Apparently all of them agreed that a well behaved child is one that is likable by both her peers and teacher. He does his best in whatever he attempts in class and builds up relationships with everyone.
