Included in this packet you will find K-2 lessons for the most commonly used character traits including Respect, Responsibility, Kindness/Caring, Perseverance, Self-Control, Self-Discipline and Courage. These lessons incorporate picture books that should be available in your school library. Several book choices are provided for each lesson. Each lesson includes handouts as well as a poster for use in the lesson and/or for a Character Education bulletin board. All posters include a child-friendly definition of the character trait.
This resource was originally created as a parent volunteer program. These lessons are simple enough that a parent with little or no teaching experience could present the lessons. I have included additional information about how I used this in my parent program, as well as a training handout for parents.
