Character Education / Social Skills for the Primary Grades
Character Education for the Primary Grades SAMPLE is a small part of a collection of activities and incentives to keep students engaged in their learning. I find that in my first grade classroom it is often best to keep it simple, engaging, and relatable to students. This collection does just that! The following activities are included in the FULL character education kit:
Character Education Student Journal - My students LOVE writing and drawing in their journals as they relate the character traits that we learn about to their own lives as well as discover traits in characters that we read about and discuss in books (comprehensive book list is included in the kit). The journal consists of 20+ pages that you can choose from to include in your students' journals.
Character Trait Posters - 10 posters are included for 10 different character traits (color and black/white posters are included in the kit)
Discussion Cards - 36 discussion cards are included. Each card presents a scenario. These cards can be used whole group or in small cooperative groups. Students discuss the scenario and problem solve to find various solutions. My first graders love working in cooperative groups to discuss the scenarios and problem solve together. I find that the discussion cards help the kids think through real life situations and how they might handle them in a way that demonstrates good character. The discussion cards promote great conversation and the students love them!
Character "Tags" - Give your students a "high five" for all of their good work/behavior in your classroom with these "High Five" Character Tags. These tags can be used in a variety of ways as incentives/rewards for your students.
"Character "Critter" Awards - These critter awards can be used as rewards/incentives for your students. There are 12 awards included (color and black/white).
Character Education Book List - A list of 58 books is included with this kit. The list is divided by character trait for your convenience.
