About Growing Good Kids:
Created by teachers and classroom-tested, these fun and meaningful enrichment activities build children’s skills in problem solving, decision making, cooperative learning, divergent thinking, and communication while promoting self-awareness, tolerance, character development, and service.
Using our character education lesson plans, kids create books, write stories, resolve to help others, explore their own values, discover why mistakes can sometimes be beneficial, practice patience, and more in projects that combine enjoyment with learning.
The book presents 28 fully developed activities focused on self-discovery, learning about others, and the wider world. Features include:
- step-by-step activity directions with learning objectives, student outcomes, and ideas for extending activities for use with families and in the community
- curriculum connections for language arts, social studies, science, math, and art
- flexible formats that can be adapted to suit teachers’ and students’ unique needs
- a focus on both cognitive and social and emotional learning (SEL)
