Teaching RESPECT activities, Social Skills and Character Education with your students is often times more important then the educational piece. It is an important life skill that students will use their entire life. An essential life skill! A class that lacks character and social skills will have a difficult time during the school year learning anything. I spend a considerable amount of time each year teaching social skills.


This Respect Unit has 10 step by step lessons designed for your students to gain a better understanding of what it means to "be Respectful". Children have to be taught to RESPECT. All the lessons are planned out Step by Step, should you follow it. Most of the lessons have differentiated worksheets that go with the lessons. These are all optional and can also be done on a different day.

I have saved you hours of planning time. This is a NO PREP unit, just PRINT, put in a binder and TEACH. There are discussion questions, activities, interactive activities and worksheets to go with the lessons. It will keep you busy for at least 3 weeks!

If you want it at the discounted price, it is also part of the Social Skills Bundle!

Please look at the Preview to gain a better idea.

Included in the unit is also a detailed explanation of Family Meetings, aka Morning Meetings. When you are a class for 10 ½ months, you become a family. Families talk to each other and listen to each other. Family Meetings are a time where students and the teacher come together and make decisions, choices and talk about difficult issues together. These “Listening” lessons are designed to be done within the Family Meeting environment, but can also be taught as a lesson.

For more information on how this works in a classroom, check out our article on Character Education.

This is the 2nd of a series on Character Education. Stay tuned for the next ones coming soon on Self Respect, Encouraging, Trusting and more.
