Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

How Are We Good Helpers At School?

Description: 

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)

Helping Hand awards and following celebration

Learning Targets: 
Students will describe and justify the actions of a helper in four ways: Help others, take care of our things (respect property), do our best (take initiative), respect others (have a good attitude)
Students will describe the efforts of school employees.
Students will give evidence that someone has been a good helper and award helpful behavior.
