My Students

This upcoming year, I will be entering my second year in 1st grade. Last year I learned how crucial of an age these kids are at in developing character. Character education lessons are extremely important and the first grade year can set the tone for school behaviors such as respect, honesty, sportsmanship and especially hard work and Grit!

As I am making reflections and planning for a successful year, I would love to enrich my literacy collection and add books that strengthen and teach character and manners.

Character education books would be an amazing addition to my classroom this year and would greatly enrich the minds and hearts of my students for years to come.

Great books can quickly add up in an already tight teachers budget and they would reach so many children and fill many needs. Thank you for any support!

My Project

These character Education books will be used in my first grade classroom to teach and support good character and school and classroom Etiquette. In first grade I have learned that students are at a crucial point in needing knowledge of kindness, manners, acceptance and respect. These books used as read alouds, independent reading and small group lessons will help students learn and practice attributes of good character.

In first grade we have students who are desperate to speak out and gain attention that a read aloud and mini lesson including the book "My Mouth is a Volcano" by Julia Cook can be beneficial in teaching students the kinds of things that can be said and a technique that teaches students when is best to speak.

I would love to use this text to support students and give them confidence when they speak at correct times.
