Character Education is something that is taught in all elementary aged classrooms across the United States. I love this lesson because it is an introduction to all different "character words". In the story, we learn all sorts of new vocabulary as a little girl makes cookies. I love to do this lesson at the beginning of the year...and of course we have to have cookies to go along with it! This lesson includes vocabulary cards with definitions as well as a parent letter explaining what words the students had learned through this heart-warming story. I use this story with 1st graders but it could very easily be used by Kindergarten-2nd grade.
