Guided Practice: Guide students in coming up with a list of behaviors that we should show during workshop to show respect (ex: listen, use kind words, help each other, share materials and ideas, cooperate, encourage, etc.). List these behaviors on chart paper titled, “How We Show Respect”. Students copy this list in their notebooks.
Independent Practice: Have students continue adding ways to show respect to their lists and illustrate these ideas. While students are finishing their lists and illustrating independently, you have time to call students for reading records if needed.
Closing: Share some new ideas that students listed independently and finish your list on chart paper.
