True Character Education in our neck of the woods is a thing of the past. I find myself spending so much time trying to teach manners, character traits, and other citizenship qualities so very often. As teachers, it is our job not only to teach students- but to help them become responsible and respectful citizens in our democracy. Instead of complaining about what “they aren’t being taught at home”, I want to encourage subtle ways for teachers to continue to implement character education in their classrooms on a daily basis. By no means am I saying that reading a passage will turn children into model citizens, but it sure can’t hurt to let them read about the correct way to conduct themselves. It is my hope that these passages will be used in conjunction with other activities to help your students-our children-become the best possible people they can be! Instead of having the levels on the passages where students can see the numbers, I have decided to put a shape to designate which level it is in the top right-hand corner. They are also included in the product in this order.
A circle designates low (470).
A triangle designates mid (550).
A square designates high (660).
