This bundle of character ed mini-units is the framework of my classroom management. If you're interested in building classroom community...these four units will help you do that with original songs, role playing, literature connections and writing extensions that cement the learning. I can't live without doing these units with my students and the increased focus I've put on character in my classroom over the last four years has changed the way I view teaching. If you're on your last straw with discipline or management...don't give up! Start with these lessons!

***NOTE: If you'd like to see some previews of any of the units, check out the links to the individual packs!***

Lesson 1: Following the Rules
Use anchor charts I've provided to lead a discussion on rules in the classroom. (SL.1; SL.3)
