All teachers know that when parents
are in volved with their child's education, their child
is more successful. It is to this end that the Character
Education at Home (CEAH) program was designed.
CEAH helps connect familiies to the learning that is
taking place at school.
The program is designed using
one Teacher Kit and nine Parent Kits, one for each month
of the school year. The concept is to send the kit home
to the parents, have the parents read a story, answer
questions andcomplete some activities that reference
the character trait of the month.
After completing the activities,
the child is to cut out a Puzzle Piece that is printed
on card stock, have his or her parent write a short
message stating what the child learned about the character
trait that month, and return the puzzle piece to school
to put on his or her Student Puzzle Sheet.
The completed puzzle will be
a picture of Champ, the Character Collie.
