Community Meeting

Your First Name

Greeting Objective

The learners will greet each other with a respectful class greeting.


  • Students sit in a circle.
  • One student begins.

Use the following format:

Class: “Say your first name and when you do, we’ll be respectful back to you.”


Class: “Good morning, Samantha!”

  • Continue until all students have been greeted.

Respect All You See

Engagement Objective

The learners will participate in a movement activity while singing a song about respecting people, animals, and the environment.


  • Students start by sitting in their chairs.
  • Students will first sing the song without doing the movements.
  • While singing the song the second time, students should alternate between standing and sitting every time they sing a word that
           starts with an “R.” (The words “respect” and “ready” are the only “R” words.)
  • Example:
  • (This song is sung to the tune of “My Bonny Lies Over The Ocean.” Download printable song lyrics here.

Oh, we respect (stand) all our friends,
And we respect (sit) family.
Oh, we respect (stand) all our friends,
Get ready (sit) respect (stand) all you see.

Respect (sit), respect (stand),
Get ready (sit) respect (stand) all you see, you see.

Respect (sit), respect (stand),
Get ready (sit) respect (stand) all you see, you see.

  • Repeat going faster and faster.
  • Conclude by discussing different ways respect was mentioned in the song.


End your community meeting by informing your students about the schedule of the day.

Family Connection

Send home directions for “Respect All You See” activity. Encourage families to discuss different ways they can show respect at home and rewrite the song to fit their family’s need.
