Have you ever noticed how kids like hearing stories about other kids making bad choices? It is human nature to want to know that others make mistakes too. I used some of these characters in a Kindergarten classroom for 16 years to teach color recognition, color words, and classroom rules all at the same time. Recently, I used the characters in a second grade classroom for behavior issues and noticed there were additional and different behaviors needed in the classroom as the kids grew older.
The kids in my classroom helped me come up with these new characters. We used behaviors they were noticing in our classroom. They helped brainstorm some of the behaviors and names of each character. We hope your class enjoys learning about these characters and get to be in The Cool Kids Club.
