Children’s minds are very impressionable at a young age, especially in preschool. Teaching students that everyone is different and it is okay to be different can be a positive learning experience. With Respect for Others: Activities for a Global Neighborhood, by Cynthia Manthey, explores cultural diversity to spark children’s curiosity. Preschool students learn that every person, family, home, and lifestyle is unique. By embracing multiculturism, children will be less likely to judge or be cruel and embrace their individuality.
This book will foster students’ sense of respect for others, the world, and themselves. Children will learn to appreciate differences among others and develop self-esteem. Students will learn to respect others’ age, appearance, gender, physical abilities, family, race, and culture. With Respect for Others: Activities for a Global Neighborhood has developmentally appropriate and diverse themes. Through knowledge, children can become more caring and respectful.
With Respect for Others: Activities for a Global Neighborhood can help you implement a zero-tolerance policy for bullying or cruelty in your classroom. This education tool comes with prewritten letters to provide to parents if any sensitive issues arise. It also encourages parent involvement and can be paired with other lessons. You can add Pre-K Math: Concepts from Global Sources to teach students numbers and multiculturalism. Turning your classroom into a multicultural hub will positively impact students throughout their lives.
