This is a simple ceremony which can be used as an opening or a closing for a Cub Scout meeting with the theme of “Respect” which ties in with the Scout Law point of “Courteous”.
For this ceremony, have each Cub Scout read one line. As they say each letter in “Respect” they should hold up a sheet of paper with the letter written on it for all to see. So when they finish, everyone should be able to see that they have spelled out “Respect”.
This month, we think about respect.
R is for remembering the kind things others have done for us
E is for everyone who has a unique talent
S is for self because we must also respect ourselves
P is for peace among nations
E is for ecology which is how we respect our world
C is for community and working together
T is for trusting in each other
So this month let’s try extra hard to show respect to ourselves, to others, and to our world.
