It is important to use good manners when I talk with others.


 

 

When I am at school, I raise my hand to get permission to talk.


 

 

 

When I talk at school I use a quiet, inside voice.


 

 

When an adult at school asks me to do something I should:

Look at the adult.

Say “Okay.”

 Do it right away.


 

 

 

It is important to use good manners when I talk with an adult at school.


 

 

 

If an adult at school asks me to do something, I should not say, “No, I don’t want to.”


 

 

 

If an adult at school asks me to do something, I should not say, “Wait, I’ll do it later.”


 

If something is my responsibility, I should do it myself.  It is not good manners to tell adults at school to do something that I am able to do myself.


 

 

I should not say, “No, you are suppose to carry my lunch ticket.”  That is being bossy.


 

 

I should not say, “You have to carry my lunch box.”


 

 

I should not say, “You have to put away my art box.”


 

 

 

I should not say, “You have to wear corduroy pants today, not jeans.”


 

 

 

I should not say, “You have to sit by me.”


 

 

 

It is not good manners to argue with adults at school.


 

 

 

I should not say, “I’m not going to eat my lunch today.  I don’t care what you say.”


 

 

 

I should not say, “I don’t have to wear snow pants!  My Dad says I don’t have to.”


 

 

 

It is not good manners to say rude things to adults at school.

 


 

 

When an adult at school is talking, it is important to wait until the adult is finished talking.  It is not good manners to interrupt.


 

 

 

 

When I need help, it is important to ask politely, “Please, help me.”


 

 

 

When a teacher helps me, it is important to say, “Thank you.”


 

 

 

Adults at school will like when I use good manners when I talk with them.
