This year I have decided to put more emphasis on polite expressions in the pre-K/kindergarten class. Because such expressions are a sign of respect, they are consistently taught in the Montessori classroom.
In the past, we have always had the children say “Danke” when they receive their coloring page. But I am hoping to add more expressions, such as “Entschuldigung” and even “Guten Appetit!”
I have made some posters to help teach the words to the children. Although I only intend to focus on one expression at a time and then reinforce it throughout the year.
Our first word is Danke!
I will also send a coloring page home with the children to reinforce the word:
You can download all of the polite expressions posters for FREE here: Höflichkeit Posters GitA
And you can download the Danke! coloring page for FREE here: Danke Malvorlage GitA
As I create more coloring pages, I will be sure to post them!
