Are you WILD about character education? These ADORABLE WILD animal-themed character trait posters with matching award certificates are sure to be a hit for your SEL/character education program! The set includes 11 posters with 10 different traits
all available in FULL COLOR AND BLACK/WHITE
(one per month of the school year!) Each poster is formatted for perfect 11 x 8.5 landscape printing! Each certificate is EDITABLE
and allows for you to type in the students' name before you print! Or, you can delete the text box and handwrite them if you'd like! Then, you or the program sponsor signs the bottom line!
THE INCLUDED TRAITS ARE:
• Kind Kangaroo
• Caring Cheetah
• Tolerant Tiger
• Respectful Rhino
• Motivated Monkey
• Safe Snake and Safe Skunk (2 posters included!)
• Loving Lion
• Helpful Hippo
• Patient Peacock
• Brave Bear
This concept makes for a great way to organize your school counseling curriculum for the year around character traits or they can be used by classroom teachers as a great SEL learning tool as well! The posters also make great visual aids for classroom lessons, bulletin boards, and displays around the school building! I'll share with you how I use this product at my school but there are endless ways that you could use it and make it your own!
I choose one trait each month and teach it to my students at the beginning of every classroom guidance lesson. My principal reads the poster every morning on the announcements and the posters hang in our main hallway. I encourage teachers to hang that month's poster in their classroom, discuss the trait of the month daily during morning meeting, and reinforce the material regularly by asking students, "Are you being a Loving Lion?" (or whichever trait we are celebrating that month!) At the end of the month each class votes for a student that they think exemplifies the trait and those students win Student of the Month! Student of the Month winners earn a certificate, their picture in the hallway, their name on the announcements, and the chance to sit at the Student of the Month table at lunch and eat a popsicle! Students feel SO proud to sit at the Student of the Month table and their peers feel so motivated to try to be in their place next month! :) We even honor a Teacher of the Month who exemplifies the character trait and they win a free lunch donated by our local steakhouse! I can't wait to hear how you use these products and how much your students, parents, and teachers love them! :)
