The Picture Book of the Month for Character Traits is a nine-month, take-home, book program that involves families when building positive character development. Included in this unit are books specifically selected for the unit, story element worksheets, differentiated character traits activities, and a parent letter. Please note that you will need to purchase or check-out from the library, nine books, obtain a canvas bag, and obtain a clipboard for this program.
One character trait is highlighted during each month of the take-home program.
How to use:
Each month, one of the nine character trait books will be placed inside a canvas bag to transport from home to school. The book will be available to students for overnight check-out. Students are encouraged to take the book home and have an adult or older sibling read it with/ to them. While students read the book with their family, they should discuss the character trait that is displayed in the story. At home, the students will complete the story elements worksheet. Additionally, differentiated character traits activities are provided to meet the needs of the varying levels of learners in classrooms.
