Learning about Self-Discipline and Self-Control

Build Strong Character and Reading Skills
Help put an end to bullying and violence by focusing on and teaching positive peer interaction. The motivational readers in the Character Education Readers series allow you to double your instructional time by teaching children important character-building values while promoting practice with their reading skills. The books complement a CD that includes a narrative reading of each book as well as the lyrics presented as a song. Invite students to listen to the catchy tunes as they follow along in their books. Soon, your students will be singing their way toward building a more caring classroom community.

Think Before You Act teaches children about self-discipline and self-control. Children will identify with the choices that the book projects: choosing healthy vs junk food, avoiding a fight, finishing work, safety concerns, and wisely spending money are all covered in this 16 page book. These ideas may generate other areas of discussion that need self-discipline and self-control. While the colorful cartoon characters look like fun, the ideas are presented so that children will understand, and may spark questions and more mature thought that is necessary for children to consider. Cause and effect and why things happen play into the theme of this book. If combined with the Character Education CD (CTP-3121), sold separately, the book becomes a read-along / sing-along book, complete with instrumental music to be played when quiet activities occur, reminding children of the important topics.

Great for Reading First, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Text Comprehension.
