Character Education

I have been looking for a file on character education for a while now.  It seemed like there were parts of files that I liked, but parts that were missing.  I really wanted something the kids could interact with, and not just listen to a story about being nice or being trustworthy.  So, I took matters into my own hands, and made a unit with little readers.

I absolutely LOVE little readers (and my students do, too!).  I have little readers in each of my writing units.  All of those little readers (plus a few more) are combined to make the 30 Non-Fiction Science Readers pack.  The kids have a new book each week.  They draw the pictures to match the words, and we read them all week.  Have I mentioned how much I love them?  :)  I also made a pack of Social Studies easy readers because it's hard to find appropriate books (in length and complexity) for little learners.

Anyway, so I decided to make my character education unit with circle maps, bubble maps, anchor signs (with more than one option to make them... if you've read previous posts, you know I like options), and an easy reader.

Two different options for anchor chart signs: One that prints on colored paper, and one you can cut off the top and use the top and bottom in separate places.

A circle map and bubble map with different headings.

A paper saving, easy to copy little reader.
