This week's Mrs. McVeigh's Manners themes are Car/Carpool and Hotels.

Ask your child about what it means to have good manners in the car, and the following questions!

  • If someone is going to pick us up, how can we show that we are ready?
    • Wait outside for them, or at least sit by the window and be ready to go out the door quickly.
  • What do we do as soon as we get into a car?
  • We shut the door, sit down, and buckle our seat belt.
  • Is it okay to put our feet up on the back of the seats? Why?
    • You will get the seats dirty, and it could be distracting to the driver.
  • What are some things that could distract the driver?
    • Being noisy, throwing things, asking to change the radio station too many times…
