Description

Readers With Character is a collection of Social & Emotional Learning / Character Education Lessons for the general education classroom teacher.

Digital menu for distance learning included.

HOW ARE THESE LESSONS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SEL/CHARACTER ED LESSONS?

⇨ Each weekly unit focuses on ONE Social/Emotional/Character ‘goal’ so your students have time to digest and understand the message.

⇨ Each weekly focus is based upon one mentor text that is read on Monday, giving students a frame of reference and schema about the focus of the week in a kid-friendly and relatable way.

⇨ Each daily lesson is designed to take only 15 minutes of class time, making it manageable for the busy classroom teacher.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE?

This resource is a ONE WEEK unit lasting 5 days/15 minutes per day.

Focus of the Week: We are effective listeners.

Mentor Text of the Week: Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker by Christianne Jones

Book Overview:

Lacey Walker talks non-stop and as a result, she isn’t really getting anything done (at home OR at school). This book shows that when you stop and listen to others, you can really learn so much and be super productive!

This week’s focus takes the concept of listening one step further to show kids a method of being a good listener instead of just being a great talker.

Effective listening focuses on 6 aspects of being a good listener, and throughout the week your students will get to see examples and non-examples of this, and they will understand WHY it is so important to be a good listener!

YOUR WEEK USING THIS UNIT WILL GO A LITTLE LIKE THIS…

Monday: Students will listen to the read aloud (you, if you own the book -OR- find a YouTube reading!). Question and discussion prompts included.

Tuesday: Students will engage with you in a classroom meeting where you will remind students of the focus, and begin to generalize the story so it can apply to your focus. Students will draw and/or write their understanding of the focus of the week in their journals.

Wednesday: Students will view a video clip. Then, another community building classroom meeting will be held to talk about how the video clip relates to the focus of the week.

Thursday: Students will engage in an activity to reinforce the focus of the week. Download the preview for a look at this week’s activity!

Friday: Students will draw and/or write about their new learning by completing prompts in their journal. Then, students will take their journals home and share the ‘Home Connection’ with their families.

Also included: 1 classroom quote poster and 2 classroom anchor chart templates to develop together

*Detailed lesson plans are provided for each day!

WHAT ARE OTHER TEACHERS SAYING ABOUT ‘READERS WITH CHARACTER’?

“I don’t know where to begin… This has been an invaluable resource for me as I rebuild classroom community mid year. I have purchased most of the books now because I want my kids to be able to have their hands on them regularly and not just while I have them checked out from the library the week we’re covering it. My third graders are applying these character lessons and are taking them to heart. My only regret is not purchasing it sooner!” -Cassandra

“This has been so helpful in my class so far this year. My students enjoy the lessons built around the books and has been a great way to enhance our classroom climate. Thank you for such a wonderful product. I am looking forward to using the rest of the lessons as the year goes on!” -Siobahn

“I honestly can’t say enough praise about this resource. It has changed the climate of my classroom!!!” -Sarah
