Integrity. Self Control. Social Intelligence. Gratitude.
This is a .pdf of hand drawn posters I made and edited. You can print them on 8.5 x 11 paper and hang in your room. Each poster is inspired by a mentor text for teaching kids about character strengths. I DO NOT own or claim any rights on these books and they are intellectual property of their respective owners.
Gratitude: The Lion and The Mouse (Aesop's Fables - many versions exist, I used one from Reading A-Z.com)
Self Control: No, David! (by David Shannon. The entire series is fabulous for teaching self control in primary grades.)
Social Intelligence: Have you Filled a Bucket Today? (by Carol McCloud)
Integrity: The Empty Pot (Chinese folktale, I used the version by Demi.)
I suggest working on one trait at a time for at least a week. Use the mentor texts for read aloud and a discussion of each attribute. Let children practice each trait with shout outs and other activities. Then hang the poster as a visual reminder for students throughout the year.
I am happy to send you an editable Word document or take requests for other character strengths if needed. I am working on Grit, Positivity, and Curiosity at the moment and will add when I'm finished.
