Character Education - Book of the Month, 2014-2015
This is a literacy-based program that will focus on one to two character
traits each month throughout the school, K-8. Many of the traits are
21st Century Skills – empathy, compassion, responsibility and team
work. This will not only build community, but it will also provide
staff (and parents) with a common language to build positive character
traits in our students. A picture book was thoughtfully selected for
each month’s trait by Jenny Davidson and Mike Anderson. The book will
exemplify the focus trait. Teachers K-8 will read the book aloud and
lead a discussion about the importance of character. You are welcome to
join in with our character education traits at home!
Thank you to the Blaine PTA for funding a book per grade level for every
trait. We are working on additional grant money to hopefully provide
every classroom with their own book each month.
