Punctuality: Approach to Grade 1 I. Objective/ Rationale To teach the values of punctuality to grade one students To discuss punctuality as one of the most important values that should be taught to young individuals. To differentiate acceptable reasons for being late in class from unacceptable ones. II. Content A diller, a dollar A ten-oclock scholar! What makes you come so soon? You used to come at ten oclock; Now you come at noon. Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme (For a video: Sesame Street(Wegman Dogs),Ten 'O Clock Scholar III. Classroom Procedures A. Prayer B. Teaser The early bird gets the worm. Old Proverb C. Activity Proper 1. Nursery rhyme recital (in chorus) D. Internalization/ Evaluation 1. Preliminary exercise The teacher will ask the students something about the teaser. (e.g. what do they think of it? How does it relate to the days lesson?) 2. Discussion/ Recitation2

Ask the students this question: What are the possible reasons does the ten oclock scholar has/have for being late? 3. The teacher (or the teacher may ask the classmates to identify) should be able to identify what are acceptable reasons from not. 4. Ask some latecomers, if there is any, why they were late in the class for that day. 5. Ask the students to tell story about themselves wherein they can show that punctuality is a good character that must be possessed. IV. Follow- up A. For INC members only, tell them to be early in their worship service during Sunday and ask them the next week if what time they come on their respective services. B. Talk to their parents that they should always advice their child to be early or to be on time in their class. C. Reward students (e.g. treat, compliment, etc) who are consistently making it on class on time. The adviser should know the reason/s why a student is late or always late on the class. Advise them as well as their parents. V. Analysis This proposal will be effective in three main reasons: The students will be aware of the unacceptable reasons why they are late on class. Knowing it will eliminate their dependence to just throw excuses. The act of giving rewards to those who participate is a great a strategy for us to be sure that all of the students will not only enjoy but also learn for a life time. It is also helpful if the parents will be included since they will be the one who will be the instrument to make their children punctual in all aspects.

Punctuality: Approach to Grade 3 I. Objective/ Rationale To make students realize the importance of punctuality in their studies and in their future. To encourage students to prevent anything unpunctual and to learn how to work on it. II. Content Black and White Pedro Pablo Sacristn

A long, long time ago, when everything was just starting out, and even the planets and stars were so young that they were still going to school, there was a special class which was everyone's favourite, having by far the most fun classmates. The class members were a bunch of rather mischievous colours; from black and white, through to red and blue, yellow, and all the rest. They hoped to grow up to be wonderful colours, and this is what they were training for. As well as funny and joyful, the colours were very naughty; particularly black and white, who were so preoccupied with causing mayhem that they were almost always late for class. One morning there was a great commotion in the sky. The clouds were up there, practicing their raining, but they had been raining for so long that they'd gone and created a storm so terrible that absolutely everyone had become saddened and depressed at having so little light. When the sun started shining again, not even that managed to cheer up the world. The only solution was to appeal, as a last resort, to the naughty, mischievous colours, even though they were still very young and weren't yet trained for anything like this. The authorities went straight to their classroom. It was still early, and, as ever, black and white hadn't yet turned up.


However, there was no time to lose; they couldn't wait for black and white. The other colours had to do something fast. They ran down the corridors, out of the door, and flew up into the sky, where the clouds - ashamed for what had happened - were waiting. On their way up to the clouds each one of the colours left a resplendent trail. Travelling side by side, the combination of all the colours' trails was so striking and spectacular that smiles returned to everyone's face, and the world filled with the sound of applause. The colours felt honoured and delighted to be named as the sun's official assistants. And the inhabitants of the world begged them to promise that, from that day on, the colours would always be on hand, to help cheer everyone up. It was agreed that whenever the clouds overdid it on the rain, the colours would come quickly and make a rainbow. A bit later, black and white entered the classroom, finding it empty. Everyone was congratulating the other colours so much for their wonderful performance that black and white - really the most fun and happy of all the colours - didn't dare to ask to be part of the rainbow, and from that time onward they forced themselves to be punctual and responsible. Indeed, they managed this so well that now they don't mind being left out of the rainbow. They are now the most serious and important of all the colours, and no one can get anything done without them. III. Classroom Procedures A. Prayer B. Teaser The bad news is; time flies. The good news is; you're the pilot. C. Activity Proper 1. Story- telling 2. Recitation D. Internalization/ Evaluation7

1. What is the moral lesson of the story? 2. What will you do if you are on the shoes of the main character? Would you do the same or not? IV. Follow- up A. Ask your students and child if they are doing the things that you taught. B. Always check the attendance on time C. Ask what are the reasons why your students is being late at school and check if their reasons is valid or not, if not talk to them and give them some advice to work on their lateness. V. Analysis This would be a great help for the students to become early at school and most especially for the students that are intelligent but having a low grade because of their attitude in being late. It will teach them that being early is important because you will not miss any of your lessons in the morning and this will be a good attitude when you are already working.


Punctuality: Approach to Grade 4 I. Objective/ Rationale To teach grade 4 students how to be aware of time To respect ones time by learning to be punctual always. To mold students to become a reliable person who values time. II. Content This paper uses poems about punctuality to be presented to the students. Poems are short with good moral lesson, thus the proponent chose this form of literature for the students to easily get the main point of the lesson. The Beauty of Punctuality Always adhere to punctuality In a way try to be early Punctuality is a sterling quality Practice it regularly daily It will have an unbelievable utility You will be admired particularly Reach a place well in advance Teach the World at every chance Each such act makes your image enhance This will give you a great name All will call you Mister Right Your noble act none can blame There will be no room for fight Surely will shoot up your fame As you show to the World light.

MORAL LESSON: Being punctual gives one an edge on the other, it will depart you from rushing things, that can make one a reliable person. III. Classroom Procedures A. Prayer B. Teaser The difference between rising at five and seven o'clock in the morning, for forty years, supposing a man to go to bed at the same hour at night, is nearly equivalent to the addition of ten years to a man's life. ---Doddridge C. Activity Proper 1. Poem reading 2. The teacher should first introduce the topic to the students by citing his her experiences of being late once in his her life. D. Internalization/ Evaluation After reading the poem, the teacher may group the students into 5 groups (for example), then he will let each group to site the benefits and advantages of being punctual indicated in the poem, they can also provide some examples they believe an attribute of being punctual. Each group will come on front and state their insights about punctuality. IV. Follow- up Of course, one cannot assure that the lesson they taught in class will be absorb by the students easily, thus the proponent suggests that the teacher should implement a policy in class, that everyday his students should come on school on time , lets say 7:00am sharp. To make this policy effective the teacher may give some incentives or gifts to those students who come early or on time. By doing this the students can practice being punctual.


V. Analysis This proposal will be very effective if properly implemented. The teacher should have first the initiative to guide the students on how to become punctual. The cooperation of the students is also a big factor, thus the ability of the teacher to lead will be tested in this matter. A promise of a passing grade and some gifts will make the students cooperate. This approach is very important for the students to learn in this very early moment, for them not to depart from this when they aged. This attitude will surely be their edge to others, they will be admired too.


Punctuality: Approach to Grade 5 I. Objective/ Rationale To define punctuality by discussing its opposite and consequential traits. To discuss the importance of identifying the causes of tardiness in order to deal with it properly. To promote advance thinking by considering the possible consequences that may arise from a situation involving unpunctuality. II. Content First Day at Work Sulekha had just been appointed in the multinational bank. After one month of rigorous training today was her first day to display the result of the training. She got up as usual, but decided to skip her gym workout as she did not want to risk getting late to office on her first day itself. She went through her morning routine and spent a lot of time in deciding what to wear. None of her dresses seemed to appeal to her- either they were a little too bold for a first day or they were a little too dull and she definitely wanted to make an impression right from the start. Finally she settled on the white embroidered churidhar set combined with a tie and dye duppatta. She waved bye to her mom and set off cheerfully towards the bus stop. But she saw a bus leaving the stop just as she turned round the corner. Now she would have to wait for a good 15 minutes. She stood there patiently. 15 minutes passed and then 30 minutes and there was no sign of the bus. There was not a single rickshaw too in sight. Now what would she do? She had to reach office on time. She saw a rick approaching but as she tried to stop it, the driver speeded on without even a glance. And still no trace of a bus. It was then that a car stopped near her and a man waved out to her. He said, "Aren't you working at the bank at Nariman Point? My office too is in the same building. Can I give you a lift?"


Sulekha was hesitant at first but then forced herself to get in as she was going to get late. They exchanged preliminary formalities and then he switched on the radio and absorbed in the song, Sulekha realised too late that they were not on the familiar route to her office. She asked the man to stop the car but he did not heed her and asked her to shut up. (First Day at Work, III. Classroom Procedures A. Prayer B. Teaser Tardiness C. Activity Proper 1. Story Telling (Open- ended story) 2. Completing the story D. Internalization/ Evaluation 1. Preliminary exercise Ask some students to volunteer to go to the board and write any negative word which come to their mind when they hear or see the word tardiness. This could be done by webbing. 2. Discussion/ Recitation Ask the students the following questions: Who was the man? What do you think of his intention? Do you think Sulekha reach her office on time? What causes Sulekhas tardiness? When you are Sulekha, what could have you done to prevent such kind of mishap? 3. Ask the students to look at the words on the board. Ask them to identify the single word that signifies the positive trait that could have prevented those negative words on the blackboard. 4. Finally, reiterate the advantages an individual may have for being punctual.


IV. Follow- up The adviser should take attendance on time regularly. Offer reinforcements (e.g. plus points, exemption in examination, quizzes etc.) to those students who can make it on class daily and on time. Also, let a student explains his/her being late on class.

V. Analysis By letting the students to be aware of the negative outcomes of not exercising punctuality, they will be eager to develop the sense of responsibility and discipline to keep themselves of such mishap or misfortunes that may arise from being tardy. They will be also aware of the short-term and long-term rewards that an individual can have for being punctual for as the time passes, punctuality may not only be a value but will also become their trait. Punctuality is one of the characteristics and behavior necessary for success not only in school but also in work and in everyday setting.


Punctuality: Approach to Grade 6 I. Objective/ Rationale To further instill to the minds of the students the importance of punctuality. To discuss the role of time management in practicing punctuality. To encourage students to practice utilize their time effectively and efficiently. II. Content Punctualityby Lewis Carroll

Man Naturally loves delay, And to procrastinate; Business put off from day to day Is always done to late. Let ever hour be in its place Firm fixed, nor loosely shift, And well enjoy the vacant space, As though a birthday gift. And when the hour arrives, be there, Where'er that "there" may be; Uncleanly hands or ruffled hair Let no one ever see. If dinner at "half-past" be placed, At "half-past" then be dressed. If at a "quarter-past" make haste To be down with the rest15

Better to be before you time, Than e're to be behind; To open the door while strikes the chime, That shows a punctual mind. III. Classroom Procedures A. Prayer B. Teaser "I'm late. I'm late for a very important date. No time to say "hello", goodbye. I'm late, I'm late. I'm late." A popular line from the white rabbit, a fictional character in Alice Wonderland by Lewis Carroll C. Activity Proper 1. Poem reading 2. Answering questions about the poem D. Internalization/ Evaluation 1. Preliminary exercise The teacher will ask a student familiar with the line in the teaser to tell something about it. The teacher should make the students reflect that being late for something means you have no time not only for that certain thing but also for other things. 2. Discussion/ Recitation(oral/written) Ask the students the following questions: What is the theme of the poem? What are the things men naturally love? What is implied in the poem that should be done in order to overcome it? What can you say about the last stanza of the poem? Note: The teacher can also ask the students to write an essay answering these following questions.16

3. The teacher should be able to discuss the importance of time management in response to the call of punctuality. 4. Give some tools/techniques ought to be helpful in making time management. IV. Follow- up Encourage students to do time management by teaching them effective ways on how to do it and encourage them to use their creativity in making it. A. Homework: 168 Hours per Week: Complete a time analysis Each week has 168 hours (24 hours per day x 7 days per week). Analyze how much time you spend in an average week on sleep, meals, chores, exercise, transportation, work, family responsibilities, classes and studying. Look at the following example of a time analysis:

Hours per activity in a 7 day week: Sleep Meals Chores Exercise Transportation Family Classes Studying Total 56 hours 14 hours 5 hours 5 hours 5 hours 5 hours 40 hours 30 hours 160 hours


Flexible Time= Hours per week- total hours per activity FT= 168- 160; 8hrs. The student should answer the following questions: What can you do to effectively utilize the time for each activity in a week? What can you say about the fact that you have actually a lot of time in a day? In a week? What is flexible time? Why do you think it is important to have some? Additional requirement: Make a time worksheet that will record all the activities, from useless to useful things, which you have done or have allotted time with in a daily basis for the next week. Creativity in doing the worksheet will be credited. V. Analysis Letting the students be aware on how they use their time is tantamount to elimination of anything unpunctual. Teaching them how to devise time management in everything they do will promote responsibility and discipline in handling their time well. Later on, they will find it useful as they will learn from the consequences of leaving their time worksheet blank. They will realize that punctuality regularizes activities and thereby makes best use of time.
