  • This unit uses the story of the miller, his son, and their donkey as a foundation for talking about fitting in. With imaginative writing and drawing prompts (and a word search!), as well as comprehension questions, this is a fun introduction to Aesop AND a solid lesson on character education and critical thinking skills. Available at four levels. Common Core: RL.3.2

  • These cards/posters contain 15 important character traits for building community in your classroom.

  • Students work with a partner to identify 4 character traits; then determine what they look and sound like in the classroom. In addition, acting out these traist is a fun classroom sharing activity to build community.

  • This two page template allows students to share their family with their class. Includes places to write, draw or post photos about their family. They will also include their position in their family as a single, oldest, middle or youngest child. Templates can be mounted to file folders or poster boards as well as bulletin boards for display.

  • This short lesson doesn't provide answers, but provides the vocabulary for discussing ethical questions.
