RESPECT

Community Meeting

“Pass It On”

Greeting Objective

The learners will respectfully accept classmates’ “likes” while greeting each other using a “pass it on” pattern of likes.

Directions

  • Students sit in a circle.
  • Students need to think of something they really like to eat.
  • The teacher begins by greeting the student on the right and telling them what they like to eat.
  • As the greeting continues, students need to remember everyone’s favorite foods.

USE THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

Mrs. Smith: “Good morning, Chad. I like bananas.” (Chad turns to next student.)
Chad: “Good morning, Jody. Mrs. Smith likes bananas and I like pizza.” (Jody turns to next student.)
Jody: “Good morning, Dan. Mrs. Smith likes bananas, Chad likes pizza, and I like Skittles.” (Dan turns to next student.)
Dan: “Good morning, Jessica. Mrs. Smith likes bananas, Chad likes pizza, Jody likes Skittles, and I like chocolate ice cream." 

  • The greeting is continued around the circle. The whole group helps the speaker “Pass It On” correctly.
  • This greeting could be used several times by changing up the topic. The topic could be a color, food, book, author, sport, or something the class has been studying.

HINT: In the interest of saving time, it would be possible for each student to just pass on one neighbor’s choice, as well as their own.

“Would you rather…..”

Engagement Objective

The learners will respectfully accept classmates’ “likes,” as they make decisions based on questions to form like-based groups.

Directions

  • Students stand and are prepared to move into groups on one side of the room or on the other by making decisions based on questions asked by the teacher. Possible questions:
  • Would you rather have a pet dog or a pet cat?
  • Would you rather meet a wild bear or a wild tiger?
  • Would you rather climb a mountain or a tree?
  • Would you rather travel by airplane or boat?
  • Would you rather eat ice cream or candy?
  • Would you rather read a biography or write an autobiography?
  • Would you rather swim in a pool or in the ocean?
  • Would you rather draw a picture or sing a song?
  • Would you rather play baseball or soccer?
  • Would you rather play piano or guitar?
  • Would you rather learn about insects or earthquakes?
  • Conclude by discussing the importance of appreciating others’ differences and similarities.
