Looking for an engaging resource to teach character ed? We’ve created a series of songs and videos that teach important social and emotional skills while also building vocabulary knowledge.
Choose a character education subject below for videos and songs, activity ideas and discussion questions:
- Coping with Change
- Goal Setting
- Honesty & Trust
- Responsibility & Decision-Making
- Self-Motivation & Perseverance
The songs and videos above were designed not only to improve students’ vocabulary and reading ability, but also to develop the traits that will help them excel in school and in life. Teaching character education is fundamental. It’s especially important for students who aren’t receiving strong character guidance at home. To become successful, every child needs to develop a sense of honesty, responsibility, self-motivation and empathy.
With this in mind, we made sure to include elements of character education in many of our “Word Up” vocabulary songs. Whether the morals are obvious or more subtly woven into the songs’ high-interest stories, teachers can use these units to foster the strong character traits that will serve students throughout their lives.
