The Power of Persuasion
It is school carnival time, and my kids are selling tickets. I asked who was going to do the talking and not surprisingly Miss E said she was. So I had her role play with me what she was going to say and do. Mr J stood wide eyed watching since this is his first year to sell them. I deemed they were ready to descend upon our neighbors, and they headed out the door. The first house they sold one, the next 2, then the 3rd Miss E turns to Mr J and says "Here," and gives him all the stuff, "your turn." She still went with him to the door, but just made him do all the talking. They sold 5 there. As they were leaving that house Miss E turns to Mr J and says, "Here you just do all the rest. You are smaller and cuter."
