Our educators can heighten our learner's motivation to use these words by telling them that each phrase has a secret power. Toddlers want to feel powerful. So our learners to know that with just one or two words, she can exercise a very special and magic effect on other people—and that these magic words give them the power even to influence grown-ups. All of them, when spoken by a toddler, tend to make adults smile. But each has specific powers as well:
"Please" makes grown-ups much more willing to help our toddlers or to give them something they want.
"Thank you" pleases grown-ups by letting them know that our learners like what they have given them or done for them—and makes them even more willing to do more favors in the future.
"Excuse me" or "Pardon me" allows our learners to get the attention of an adult who is having a conversation or is otherwise absorbed in something other than the learners themselves; also has the power to move adults who are blocking our toddler's way or to win forgiveness from someone them bumps into.
"I'm sorry" perhaps the most magical of all because it actually helps to fix hurts, whether our learners have injured someone by accident or on purpose.
