Good character traits almost always prevail in today's literature for children. Why not incorporate some character education into your reading lessons, independent reading, or basal reading work? This product incorporates several key character traits into everyday reading. As the children read, they look for characters in the story that demonstrate positive character behavior and choices. In my classroom, I've used this as part of their independent reading. As they complete their "Characters Showing Character" booklet, they get to share it with the class. Not only does this promote the search for examples of positive character, it also serves as a way to recommend books or series of books to their classmates. You teach reading everyday. This allows you to teach character education without adding more to your already packed scheduled.
