presents... Character Education at Home


All teachers know that when parents are involved 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 families 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, discuss the questions with their children and complete some activities that reference the character trait of the month.

After completing the activities, the child cuts out a Puzzle Piece that is printed on card stock from the Parent Kit, has his or her parent write a short message stating what the child learned about the character trait that month, and returns the Puzzle Piece to school to put on his or her Student Puzzle Sheet.
