Do your students interrupt while you are teaching, working with another student, or talking to an adult? Do your kids interrupt when you are talking on the phone or having a conversation? It’s so frustrating! Often we let kids figure this skill out by ignoring them or giving them negative feedback when they interrupt in socially unacceptable manners. This story will proactively teach kids how to interrupt and will save you time and sanity! Cassandra and her friends teach Elsie four strategies to interrupt politely.
