Wait To Talk - Parents 2

Foundational

Parents

Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning the importance of not interrupting. They have also been learning about polite ways to interrupt, when needed.

Definition: Interrupting means talking out of turn when someone else is talking

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • Are there exceptions to the “no interrupting” rule?
  • What are some appropriate or polite ways to interrupt?
  • Why is it rude to interrupt?
  • What should you do if you have something to say but someone else is speaking?

Activity

Write about a time you needed to interrupt someone at home or in the community.
