In Volume #5 of the Popcorn Park: The Six Pillars of Character video series, Burna discovers (by being a "reading buddy") the personal rewards that come from giving of yourself to help somebody else. When Burna has to make a hard choice between doing a community service project and playing soccer, she learns that caring is more about what we do than about how we feel.
Help your kids explore six essential character virtues with the Popcorn Park Puppets. In each video, the puppets become entangled in problems that require them to sort out right from wrong. With a little help from Socrates and his female counterpart, Diotima, they learn to ask the right questions and do the right things.
Complete with inspiring songs and delightful humor, these videos provide a fun way to engage your students in thinking, talking, and writing about the kinds of people they want to be.
Each volume in the series is approximately 25 minutes in length. A teaching guide is included with each video providing discussion questions, writing assignments, and group learning activities. Companion materials, including classroom posters and a storybook, are also available to help you extend the lesson even further.
