Be sure to check out the Virtual Author Reading as a part of the Teacher’s Kit for special savings!
This brings the author, Cindy Grosso, a national etiquette expert into your school to read the book to your students in her voice with enhanced audio sound effects and Power Point visual of the book to your screen. The reading ends with an opportunity for the children to sing along with the B Polite song… a favorite with most children! Presentation is also Smart Board ready!
The Journey of Civility is so important, now more than ever it seems. A study conducted by Harvard University, Stanford and the Carnegie Research Institute show that a person’s success in business today is attributed:
85% to Social skills…(what I will call polish)
15% to technical knowledge.
So how much polish are we learning on our way to being successful?
How are we equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the understanding of polish and civility? The Charleston School of Protocol is on a major mission to help people “Choose Civility” and The Proper Penguin book is an integral part to help children at a young age begin the journey.
This virtual author read is smart board ready! Please know the reading, discussion, and singing of the B Polite song will take approximately 30-45 minutes. The author will read the book, projected using a Powerpoint presentation for easy viewing, and prepare your class for a lively discussion of the kind attitudes reflected in the book.
The reading comes complete with a promotional package to help you in announcing this special program to your parents and community! Once you have completed your purchase, you will be provided a link to download a .zip file (compressed file) that includes all of the materials you will need for a successful program.
Of course should you need additional information or assistance, please feel free to contact us directly anytime!
