I’m sorry for...I was especially impressed that this teacher had children apologizing for not paying attention in class because it was wasting the time of all the other students as well as the teacher. The student had to:
This is wrong because...
In the future, I will...
Will you forgive me?
1. acknowledge what went wrong,And it worked! This is a great lesson in apologizing.
2. point out who was affected,
3. say how she or he would change,
4. ask forgiveness.
