There’s no better time than the holiday season to help children learn a little bit more about manners! What better way than to give children their very own Thank-You Cards.  Manners are always in season, so consider this a year-round gift of love. The path to politeness is made easy with these ingenious traceable ‘thank-you’ notes from Letter Learning. No matter what the occasion, children can practice manners and handwriting all in one. Sending a note of gratitude couldn’t be easier.

Or, why not give a book on manners?

For children ages 4-8, there are entertaining books, such as:

Interrupting Chicken By David Ezra Stein


Mind Your Manners, B. B. Wolf by Judy Sierra


And for the older set, take a look at:

365 Manners Kids Should Know by Sheryl Eberly


How Rude!: The Teenagers’ Guide to Good Manners, Proper Behavior, and Not Grossing People Out by Alex J. Packer, Ph.D


Teach love, generosity, good manners and some of that will drift from the classroom to the home and who knows, the children will be educating the parents.
