presents... Character Education at Home


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.
