    Hi,

    I'm a new teacher in a brand-new classroom with almost the entire class being new to Montessori. I would appreciate hearing your list of "most important grace and courtesies" to keep a classroom flowing orderly.

    Thanks!

    Top Ten
    10. How to say excuse me
    9. How to serve a guest
    8. How to introduce yourself
    7. How to stand next to someone to talk
    6. How to knock on a door before entering
    5. How to carry scissors
    4. How to cough/sneeze
    3. How to use the waiting spot
    2. How to ask someone to tie your shoe
    1. How to blow your nose

    This list is by no way all inclusive, there are great G&C games to play involving class parties, using the telephone and eating together.

    Great thread! Looking forward to new ideas....
