Module THREE: Respect

Respect is when I show that I care, doing things and treating things with positive energy.

Module Review

o   Power of Positive Attitude

§  Think you can’t, you’re right! It’s very difficult to prove yourself wrong to yourself

§  Think you can, you’re right… it just might take a few times, first!

§  Attitude is what you think, feel and do

·       Change one of the three to start moving in a new direction

 

o   Listening the first time (triangle vs. circle)

§  When teachers, mom, dad, or even you have to repeat yourself, feeling positive or negative?

·       Listen the first time, use your nose and repeat back what you heard

·       Show that you care by your actions, and your tone

 

o   Tonality & Magic Phrases

§  What you say is important, AND how you can it is ALSO important, too!

·       Hey – silly, teasing, scared, angry, polite & respectful, which do you prefer?

 

Games for teachers and parents: Start using the Magic Phrases of Respect with your students. Say “Sir” and “Ma’am” with them and see what happens to their attitudes. Practice a formal greeting with everyone for one week – have everyone shake hand and use each other’s names. Practice “name x3, touch x3” every day with your students. Have your students come up with a set magic phrases at school and home everyone can use to help each other feel more positive.
