Product Description

This Gratitude resource is a month long unit taken from my Entire Year: Character Education Kit. I love using these materials because it allows you to directly teach important character traits in an active, motivating format. This unit focuses on the trait of Gratitude but there are 10 other units in the Character Education Kit, including Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, Courage, Citizenship, Fairness, Giving, Perseverance, Self-Discipline, and Trustworthiness.

Here’s what is included in this month long unit:

2 Character Traits Posters (One colorful and one BW)

2 Character Awards (One colorful and one BW)

Mentor Texts List (lots of books which help you teach Gratitude lessons)

Self-Reflection Quiz (Kids can privately assess how they are doing with this character trait)

Activity Pages (Comprehension Questions for Too Much Noise by Ann McGovern, as well as several other Gratitude activities)

32 Discussion Task Cards (Lots of questions and scenarios you can use for great class discussions)

Detailed Teacher Notes

I love including Character Education in my classroom and find it leads to better classroom behavior, while promoting a safe, accepting classroom atmosphere. Not only will you see the benefits in your classroom though, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are teaching to the heart, as well as to the head. Helping our students grow socially and emotionally can reap lifelong benefits.

Here are the other 10 Character Education Kits included in the bundle:

Kindness

Citizenship

Courage

Fairness

Giving

Perseverance

Respect

Responsibility

Self-Discipline

Trustworthiness

Why you'll love this resource:

  • These materials are a great addition to Morning Meetings.
  • Students enjoy the social emotional activities.
  • No more guesswork! Everything is clearly organized and explained in the Teacher Notes.
  • It may be used at any time during the year. For example, I like to start with Respect, do Kindness in October, Gratitude in November, and Giving in December.
  • Directly teaching character traits makes a huge difference in the behavior of your students.
  • You'll notice an improved classroom climate as you use the units each month.


If you'd like to try a month for free, here's a Character Education Caring Kit Freebie!

Kindness FREEBIE!

Also, while each character trait kit is a single license purchase, you might want to share this resource with your principal to see if he/she would like to purchase an additional license for each 2nd - 5th grade teacher (K - 1st grade are free for school purchases since many of the materials are too advanced for these ages). It is so much more powerful if the whole school is teaching the same character traits and especially if they are teaching them at the same time.

I have used these materials for many years with my classes and feel confident that you’ll enjoy using them too. This is one resource that I’m extra excited to share with you.

Finally, if you like my work, I would love for you to follow me by clicking on the green star above.

Thanks so very much!
