Activity: Manners Worksheets

Thoughts: As I was pulling books for this storytime I realized that several of the picture books about manners include a tea party – including Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf and Tea Party Rules that I ended up using.  I guess we’re supposed to be “proper” at tea parties.  It would be easy to do a storytime just on table manners, but I wanted to do something a little broader.  Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur is fun.  It reminded me a lot of the classic What Do You Say, Dear?
