Building Character is Important!

My students need character education books and games.

My Students

Our students need constant reminders of the importance of doing the right thing. They need to read books about dealing with their feelings such as anger and sadness in a healthy and appropriate way.

I am the school counselor in a high poverty elementary school in NC.

I do a lot of classroom guidance and small groups working on character education and social skills. I find that reading a book about the theme we are discussing is a great way to introduce our students to more books and teach a lesson as well. These books will help with my Comprehensive School Counseling Program and make sure I can reach as many students as possible with interesting and exciting books about character education and dealing with feelings.

My Project

Our students will learn about how to deal with sadness and hearing the word "no" and how to deal with issues such as bullying and tattling. Many times, these are lessons that do not get reinforced at home and it's important for us to provide this in elementary school so our students will be successful both in school and in life.

It is so important to make sure our students learn about how to express feelings such as sadness and anger in a healthy way.

These are important lessons for school but especially for life!!
