Reading & Writing Activities for Character Education

These supplemental workbooks are designed to reinforce desirable character traits such as appreciation, citizenship, cooperation, honesty, responsibility, as well as many others. Each book provides 18 character traits in a thought provoking fiction or nonfiction story. Some of the nonfiction stories are based upon the lives of Mother Teresa, Jane Adams, Lewis & Clark, William Penn, Helen Keller and many others. After reading the short, one page stories children complete suggested writing activities and reading comprehension questions. Comprehension questions work on skills such as: drawing conclusions, cause and effect, fact or opinion, sequencing, inferring and much more. One aspect of this series that I greatly appreciated was the character traits studied is the same for each grade level. This allows for the study of the same character trait for children of various age groups. A brief Teacher's Guide before the stories provides a summary of the concepts and discussion questions. Answer Key is provided in the back of the book. Pages are perforated for easy removal and it is reproducible for single classroom use. PB. 48 pgs. ~ Deanne
