In my pack, I have three specific citizenship lessons.
I’ve included plans on how to use them in the classroom with your students.
I read lots of books to my kids to give them lots of background knowledge on rule following and proper classroom behavior.
We talked a lot about our classroom’s rules and how we could get along with each other! I taught the kids a fun song about rules that’s included in the pack as well!
I used some mini-anchor charts to teach about telling versus tattling.
There’s also a great situational game that I made up to generate discussions with the kids about the differences between telling and tattling.
We had a blast with that! 🙂
My last lesson was on how to use your words to diffuse a situation.
It’s a great way to help kids gain independence and set personal boundaries.
We practiced this using some role playing cards.
The kids are now EXPERTS at using it! 🙂
It’s fun to hear them using it occasionally at centers! 🙂
Throughout the series of lessons we wrote about what we were learning from our books and classroom experiences.
We wrapped up the project with a personalized craft extension.
All of these activities are found in this fun citizenship pack! 🙂
