We all know that children learn best through example, but I believe that if we really want them to understand and demonstrate positive character, we need to be very intentional with teaching those traits. That is why I created my Building Communities of Character series!
This BIG Bundle includes all 14 of my packets on Friendship, Self-Control, Honesty, Cooperation, Respect, Compassion, Responsibility, Citizenship, Generosity, Perseverance, Integrity, Flexibility, Initiative, and Problem Solving.
In this bundle, there are lots of ideas for creating a classroom environment that encourages community: bulletin board ideas, community helper signs, lessons for teaching about community and doing the right thing, a class pledge, and a community song.
I've also written 14 fun little books about Skeezik and Arlo, silly little monsters that teach about the character traits. Students will enjoy reading and taking home their own copies to share with their families!
Each character trait section includes:
1. A colorful Skeezik and Arlo book with a blackline master for student copies
2. At least one poster
3. At least one original song
4. An introduction lesson
5. A character trait book list
6. Literature connection activities for at least one book
7. At least two activities and/or games for practice and review
8. Two character trait worksheets
9. A parent letter
At least one of the games or activities in each section is a STEM activity!
I hope you enjoy the materials in this Building Communities of Character BIG Bundle!
