How Are We Good Helpers At School?
In this lesson children discover that they can make valuable contributions at school by helping others, respecting school property, being positive, and solving problems. This connects to the School Helpers lesson in which we investigate the Principal, secretary, teachers, and custodial staff and how they help us.
Brainstorming activities with a home to school connection (how we help at home/how is helping at school alike/different)
Allow students to justify their answers and how they can tell if a choice is helpful (positive) or negative.
Role Play situations (4) - spilled the crayons etc. & discuss
Read aloud in the big book/text book
Introduce 4 principles: Help others, take care of our things (respect property), do our best (take initiative), respect others (have a good attitude)
