This Entire Year Character Education Kit includes print and digital for Google Classroom (and other platforms) and is a complete program to help you directly teach important character traits in an active, motivating format. The 11 character traits include Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, Citizenship, Courage, Fairness, Giving, Gratitude, Perseverance, Self-Discipline, and Trustworthiness. There is plenty of material here to teach one character trait each month, and there’s even an extra month, in case you teach summer school.
Here’s what is included in the entire year unit: (Print and Digital)

Teacher Notes for Digital with LINKS
I love teaching Character Education as it leads to better classroom behavior and promotes a safe, accepting classroom atmosphere. Not only will you see the benefits in your classroom though, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are teaching to the heart, as well as to the head. Helping our students grow socially and emotionally can reap lifelong benefits.
Why you’ll love this resource:
- These materials are a great addition to Morning Meetings.
- It comes in a print and digital format, which makes it perfect for classroom or homeschooling use!
- Students enjoy the social-emotional activities.
- No more guesswork! Everything is clearly organized and explained in the Teacher Notes.
- It may be used at any time during the year. For example, I like to start with Respect, do Kindness in October, Gratitude in November, and Giving in December.
- Directly teaching character traits makes a huge difference in the behavior of your students.
- You’ll notice an improved classroom climate as you use the units each month.

Also, while each character trait kit is a single license purchase, you might want to share this resource with your principal to see if he/she would like to purchase additional licenses for each 2nd – 5th grade teacher (K – 1st grade are free for school purchases because much of the material is too advanced for these ages). It is so much more powerful if the whole school is teaching the same character traits and especially if they are teaching them at the same time.
I have used these materials for many years with my classes and feel confident that you’ll enjoy using them too. This is one resource that I’m extra excited to share with you.
Thanks so very much!
