Mad About Manners Ages 3-7
Children are most receptive to learning manners between the ages of 3-7. Teaching children the rules for social conduct gives them social skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Manners lessons include everything from basic manners (making introductions, showing kindness to others, telephone etiquette, respecting yourself, dinning skills, manners at school, thank you notes) to sleep over and party etiquette, just to name a few.
Bee Polite - General Manners Ages 4-7
With the help of 'Miss Queen Bee', children learn why manners are important and basic manners that all kids should know. Treating others with respect and remembering the "golden rule" are emphasized in a lesson that is 'buzzing' with fun activities, including puppets and games.
Charming Chatterboxes - Polite Conversations Ages 3-7
A conversation involves much more than just 'talking'. Communication is both verbal and nonverbal. In fact, we often reveal more with our body language (or nonverbal communication) than we do with the words that we use. What we say and how we say it communicates to others our thoughts, feelings and moods. Being aware of communication etiquette and speaking politely are important for making a good impression and showing respect for others.
