As part of the morning announcement ritual a character word is read, defined, and students are given a "character challenge" associated with the word. Character words are chosen from my 32 piece Character Poster Set and displayed on the "word of the week" bulletin board to serve as a reminder for students.
Here is an example of this week's character word:
- The character word for the week of December 12th is SHARE.
- SHARE means to use or enjoy something with others.
- Character Challenge: SHARE your favorite toy, game, book, movie, or food with a friend. SHARE your thoughts, feelings, or ideas with someone you trust. Remember, SHARING shows caring!
The Character Word of the Week is read by a Peace Pal right after the Peace Pledge. Incorporating a weekly character word helps to support my Counseling Services mission to build a "community of peace". Additionally, parents can view the character word and the character challenge on my Counseling Services website!
