When I get frustrated about waiting in line, I ask myself how it would affect someone on a limited income to have to pay the extra money for more employees so that there is less waiting. 1385 days ago
I used to explain waiting in line to my Kindergarten students this way: I'd ask them if they'd ever gone grocery shopping with their moms. Most had. I'd ask them what they'd do when Mom was done shopping. They'd go to the register, right? They all agreed, that yes, that's what they'd do. THEN, I'd ask, what if Mom was in a real hurry, would she "cut the line"?? The looks of horror on their little faces and the exclamations!! "Oh, no! She'd never!!" And I would ask them, "Why?" and have them explain to me that it just wasn't done because it's NOT NICE and it's WRONG. I would sit there and murmur, ahhh...I see! And then I would tell them that it is the same thing for THEM in school. We wait for our turn because it is the right thing to do. And then I'd see the little light bulbs go off. It was a lesson that usually only had to be done once. 1385 days ago
