This Character Education resource focuses on character traits that are important to learn, model, and recognize in others. Each is designed to stand alone if you wish, or as there will be nine, you may want to complete one unit per month and build upon each trait.
Individual units will focus on the following:
PLEASE NOTE: This resource includes ALL NINE Character Traits.
Each unit introduces the character trait along with a mascot friend. All are animals which could easily be incorporated into your lessons if you wish with a stuffed animal, puppet, etc. of your choice.
Each unit consists of:
*"What is Character?” worksheet (This page is exactly the same for each unit.)
*Description of specific trait and activity
*Introduction of Character Friend (poem)
*2 worksheets focusing on reading comprehension which encourage class discussion
*An original mini reader featuring the character that introduces each unit
*Questions over the mini reader
*A mini biography with questions of an individual that is known for exemplifying the desired trait
*Certificates to reward your students when they are recognized for exhibiting the desired trait
*Fun Tags for the character trait
It is our hope that each character can become part of your classroom. We plan on using our characters as class pets and allow students to to take them home with them at times, perhaps taking them on an adventure. It is also our hope that these trips home will encourage dialogue between students and families.
