This PowerPoint teaches the importance of 10 Character traits complete with definitions, quotes and photos used to help our students understand that learning and the job of education goes far beyond academics...and the common core...am I right? :)
I use this at the end of the year with a dual focus:
1) Assess independent writing skills
2) "The 10 year test" - I tell my kiddos that- If I run into them ten years down the road and they do not remember anything else I taught them- I want them to remember these character traits, their importance and their applications in daily life.
