Character Education Activities for K-6 Classrooms.
Peyser, Sandra; McLaughlin, Miriam
Each year more children come to school unprepared to relate appropriately to others and to contribute to a positive school climate. These children seem to have more problems and less ability to cope with the structural environment of the school. Educators tend to agree that many children lack the character traits necessary for healthy, positive growth and development. Many factors contribute to this situation. Family mobility separates people from their extended families; children spend a limited amount of time with their parents or other influential family members; and children often view inappropriately portrayed behaviors on television and in the movies. Schools have identified character education as part of the solution. This book offers character education activities for the classroom than can be integrated into the school day. It presents 52 activities that can be included in social studies, health, and language arts lessons. The activities are designed for counselors, social workers, and other student services personnel to use when working with individuals, small groups, and classroom guidance. Activities focus on responsibility, good citizenship, compassion, cooperation, and character formation. (Contains 7 references.) (JDM)
