Why Respecting Teachers?

The concept of respect can be hard to teach because it is so abstract. Our kids may hear that word a lot but never truly understand it. Once students are able to understand higher level concepts like feelings, they can begin to think about other important concepts like respect. Teaching the concept of respect is important because it is a life skill that will help our students in school, social relationships, and work settings. In school, students need to respect their teachers and classmates. At work we all must show respect to our bosses and coworkers. In our social relationships, we can get into arguments if we don’t respect other people’s feelings. Our lesson breaks down this concept into what it is, why it’s important, who you respect, and how your behaviors can show respect.

Our Lesson

Respecting TeachersEmma has a new teacher. Things are different, and she is a little nervous. Emma’s mom tells her to respect her teacher and everything will be ok. What is respect? Next we learn that respect is showing people that you care about their feelings. We respect teachers because they help us learn. We can show our teachers respect by listening to them. We learn at the end that family and friends are other people we should respect.
