Product Description
I created this product specifically with my current fourth grade class in mind. I have used it with them and found it greatly successful!

Classroom community is important to me as a teacher. I feel like my students do know the right thing to do or say, but in the "heat of the moment" they tend to react disrespectfully. Whether it is tattling, saying unkind words, or arguing, I soon found we had a major problem on our hands. In response, I wrote ten short stories illustrating some of the biggest issues we have had. And now I'm sharing them with you!

I use these stories as a kind of "morning meeting" time. We read the story together, and I ask the response questions to the students. We discuss what the "right" thing to do is, and what the "wrong" thing to do is. Then for the rest of the day, we specifically work on that problem. I use the characters from the stories to remind my students how they should react or respond. (ex- "Do we want to be like Jaden or do we want to be like Mitchell?")

These stories would be a great Back to School resource for introducing classroom guidelines, or for reinforcing rules throughout the school year.

Topics Included:
Accidents/Overreacting
Group Work
Recess/Sportsmanship
Accusations/Lost Materials
Lying/Falsely Accused
Talking/Friendship
Organizing Materials/Being Messy
Teasing/Boyfriend & Girlfriend
Spreading Rumors
Recess/Tattling/Calling Names

Note: These stories were created with upper elementary students in mind (3rd, 4th, 5th). Some of these problems may not be relevant to younger students.


It is my hope that these character stories might help you and your students generate meaningful discussions about behavior and friendship. Surely I am not alone in having these problems?! If this resources helps your students or if you have a topic idea, feel free to leave a note in your feedback!
