This semester, students in Mrs. Virginia Cook’s Washington Center class have been spending a lot of time focusing on manners and greetings to further develop their experiences in the community. The students have spent time practicing how to greet members of the community in a friendly manner, as well as offer assistance to those who might need help. They have worked on concepts such as “please” and “thank you”, offering to push buggies or carry baskets for others, making eye contact when in conversation or greeting, and doing errands and tasks to further assist others. Students perform tasks for Mrs. Virginia in the classroom including wiping the tables, picking up toys and magazines, and sweeping the classroom. They are also helping around the school by collecting class attendance envelopes in the morning and delivering supplies. In the community, these lessons are carrying over and making for fantastic learning experiences for everyone!
