On the bathroom thing, I usually respond, "I'm sure at your age you're
capable." It takes a minute, but then they catch on, too, and say "May I?"

I started called the students by "you". They then got upset
because I didnt know there names. I reply - " you call me
Miss"". Some lights went on. Another game I play, but always
feel there is a lesson is the "Can I" question. "Can I go to
the bathroom" - "no" is my reply. "May I go to the bathroom"-
"yes" is my reply. Boy can I start some war on this one. Soon
they figure it out. Students start telling others to say "May
I". They do listen.
