Magic Circle: Thank You
Teaching and Modeling Manners
Weave manners into every lesson, every day.
After you get the class' attention with the Class Yes, place your hand over your heart and say, "Thank you."
Students respond by putting their hands over their own hearts, saying, "You're Welcome."
"Thank you-You’re Welcome can frequently be used as a stand-alone congratulation of individuals or groups of kids. When teacher and student employ this mannerly call-back, it is like exchanging an air hug."
