Read Goggles by Ezra Jack Keats in a developmentally appropriate manner, pausing to ask questions and make observations. When finished, have a discussion about what respect is and how not everyone was respectful to Peter and his friends in the story.
Invite children to create their own pair of goggles like Peter’s using the template and materials. When children are finished, gather at circle time to model some respectful exchanges as a class. Some examples:
“Turn to your neighbor and compliment their glasses.” “How are your glasses, Kiesha, different than Marco’s? Is there anything better or worse about one person’s glasses? No, there is not, because they are all different like we are.” “What are some respectful words we can use in our classroom?”
Assess children upon their participation and understanding of the value of respect in the classroom. For younger children, you may ask them how they felt during the exercise.
Times shown are Pacific Standard Time. If you are in Central or Eastern Time, you will need to adjust the time accordingly.
