Do you love using any books or curriculum to teach your kids manners? What types of resources have you found?
Quoting KickButtMama:Leave it. Kids learn manners best from actually seeing them in action by the adults around them. I would only use such a tool if the student was having a hard time implementing manners naturally, in their own.
I am actually looking forward to this year b/c there is a manners section incorporated into a 1st grade program. I need some brushing up on things b/c if I am not doing it properly how do I expect them to do it right. She will also be learning how to write thankyou notes---this is something that has gone by the wayside and I think it is a good thing that we are going to learn how to do them properly.
If I had the chance and the funds I might look for a larger curriculum in this area.
We had story books about them but that was it. I say leave them!
i use these for social stories
