This is a 21 slide READY-TO-USE FIELD-TESTED LESSON (no prep) PowerPoint lesson that covers the topic of KINDNESS, CARING, PRE-JUDGING OTHERS, & HOW PERCEPTIONS MAY NOT BE TRUE. It is based on the book, by Eileen Spinelli which tells the story of a spider who is trying to help, but she is pre-judged by everyone except one person.
Amazon’s description: “Sophie is an artist who wants to spin beautiful creations all day long and, someday, a masterpiece. As a spider, though, Sophie has a hard time finding a welcoming place in which she can be free to live and spin. She's shooed and shuffled all over Beekman's Boardinghouse until one day she finally finds the warm, comfortable, safe home for which she always yearned -- and the inspiration for the masterpiece of her lifetime.”
Included are links to 3 videos to support the information you are presenting. The first video is of the book being read aloud. The other 2 videos are on the topic of the choices we make create the world around us and another story about making choices. These are videos that you can mix or match or even skip if you want. There are notes with the slides that help you guide your lesson and give suggestions on teaching important points. I have also included a link that has many additional resources that can be utilized to develop this into a unit, if you desire.
Concepts covered include:
This lesson can be edited to make it fit your exact needs. The beauty of being able to personalize this lesson for yourself is that it is easily adapted to teach different levels ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. All of my lessons and forms are field-tested. I have used them myself and have been successful with them.
The videos support the concepts and help students to generalize them into their own lives and experiences. These videos are thought-provoking and entertaining ways to think about this very important concept and how it relates to being successful both now and in the future. I have found that videos are very effective in helping students to create an emotional link to the abstract concepts that character education involves. Coupled with discussions in which you can assist students to make the connection, it is an easy and effective way to teach these difficult concepts and assist students to internalize them into their own personalities.
As a bonus, you also will be getting a free unique PowerPoint template that you can utilize over and over! What a bargain! A pre-made lesson ready to teach with no prep AND a unique PPT template! And all for the cost of a couple of cups of coffee!!
This presentation includes 21 slides which have background music, transitions, and animations to help to hold your students' interest. It is easily personalized and customized and includes a master slide that you can copy and paste into the location where additional information is desired.
Character education is vital to the success of our students. Employers report that the qualities for which they are looking when hiring include the “soft skills” that are character education. As educators, we are called to support learning in the character education and social skills areas in order to educate the whole child.
