After several years in the classroom, I realized that my students needed instruction on HOW to be kind, respectful, and all the things I was asking them to be. I developed these units to support teachers in teaching and rewarding great character in the classroom! Building a classroom community is one of the most important things teachers can do and it greatly impacts our students academically! This unit on Self-Discipline
is part of a year-long curriculum for teaching students how to have great character! However, this unit could also be used as a stand-alone resource for teaching all about being self-disciplined in the classroom. :)
This unit is part of a BUNDLE that includes TEN units on character education at a discounted price.
Lesson 1-What Does Self-Discipline Mean?
You'll begin the unit by introducing self-discipline and having a discussion with your class. You'll discuss what self-discipline means, and what they already know about it. Your class will work together to create an anchor chart of student definitions of self-discipline, and then they'll take some time to draw and write about it.
Lesson 2-How Can We Show Self-Discipline?
After reviewing what self-discipline means, your class will read various scenarios and decide if they do or do NOT show self-discipline. Examples include choosing to play before homework, eating a healthy snack, and procrastinating on a project.
Lesson 3-How Can I Be Disciplined At Home?
Students will work in small groups to brainstorm ways to be disciplined at home in the morning, afternoon, evening, and on the weekends. You'll discuss things like brushing your teeth for 2 minutes, finishing your chores early, and taking care of your things. Then students will draw and write 1 way to be disciplined for each time of the day.
Lesson 4-How Can I Be Disciplined at School?
To finish the unit, you'll discuss the importance of having self-discipline at school. Your class will discuss WHY it's important, and then share a few examples. Finally,students will sort scenarios into shows self-discipline or does NOT show self-discipline.
