"Character Ed. and Community Building Activities"is a fun unit for the first days of the school year in primary grades. Most activities can be tailored to work with grades K-3. The activities in this awesome pack focus on helping students get to know each other, set goals for the year, and learn about your expectations in a fun way. It works really well if you follow the Responsive Classroom model of classroom management, and piecesn(such as the behavior expectations passport) also work with PBIS. I tried to take all of my favorite beginning-of-the-year must-do activities and combine them into one convenient pack!
Each activity comes with instructions and ideas for use, and take-home work comes with a parent letter to send home.
