Respect is having some form of regard for another person's feelings and wishes. As we get older the definition skews a bite towards admiration for another person based on their talents or accomplishments. Respect and what it really means differs a bit for each individual. Our personal experiences make us have varying levels and extremes for it. We first must learn to respect ourselves before we can begin to do the same for others. The concept of respect is hard to point out, but it is easy to point out when someone is being disrespectful. It is something that seems impossible to teach children. One of the best ways to project the concept of respect to youngsters is to consistently model that behavior for them. Always remember that you cannot teach it to anyone by being disrespectful to them. If a child is being disrespectful it best to remain calm and exert patients as much as possible. This also results in a calming affect and helps you stay in control of the situation. When needed use ultra-kind, but firm discipline to teach.
These worksheets will help students explore situations that they will experience on a daily basis. Students will need to make a judgement call on the equity of the scenario. Is everyone being treated well or is there a sense of disrespect or lack of oversight in decision making on the part of one of the parties involved? They will be given exposure to a wide range of circumstances that will have mixed consequences. This will also help students learn how to infer the expected outcome based on how people are treated. We will begin with simple identification activities and then progress on wards to writing full descriptions of the situational outcomes that students will foresee as a result. I find it easy to project a sense of mutual respect if you set up class rules that everyone, including teachers must follow.

Over the years, the concept of respect has really degraded a great deal. When I was a child, the thought of having respect for someone meant that you had a high level of administration for them almost to the point of being envious of them. Today, respect has lowered to where it comes across as being just a decent human being to others. This collection of respect worksheets helps children identify how to portray a sense of respect to others. Model a behavior is always a great way to encourage children to do the right thing. This is a very difficult concept to share with someone because it is one of those things where you cannot say what it looks like, but you can definitely pinpoint it when you see a complete lack of it. Helping students understand that relationships are important to their lives and the lives of those that they care about.

How to Encourage Student Respect?
A positive and respectful academic environment automatically encourages better education facilities and boosts both the teacher's as well as student's morale towards learning. However, maintaining a positive environment in an academic institute, especially the one with very young students, is very daunting. Children should be taught from the first day to respect and regard their teachers as well as each other. The students must be encouraged at every point to display an attitude of respect and care for everyone. Some of the ideal ways to encourage students in this regard are as follows:
Treat Students Equally and with Respect
Students are always sensitive to disrespect and biased treatment due to several reasons by their teachers. As a teacher, you must treat every child equally. The students who get better grades should not be overtly praised. Rather, the students who are weaker in their studies should also be taken care of. Do not insult the students openly, rather talk to them in private about what you find is wrong in them. Only by displaying an attitude of respect towards the students, you can expect them to respect you back.
Students are Less Likely to Respect a Strict Teacher
Being strict as a teacher for no reason will only make a student respect you in front of you. If you are rude to students without any reason, there is a 100% chance of them disliking you even if they cannot display their emotions openly. Always try to minimize the strictness as much as you can. Rebuking, ignoring, and disrespecting the students will never encourage them to respect you ever.
Appreciate Their Respectful Gestures
Children love appreciation especially when it comes from a teacher in front of the class. If a student shows you even the smallest gesture of respect, try to acknowledge it and thank the student in front of others so that more students follow the act.
