Get ready for Worldwide Character Counts! Week October 21-27!
Free Worldwide Character Counts! Week Resources
Be sure to Register for Character Counts! Week through the Josephson Institute to receive free character-based lesson plans and activities for celebrating Character Counts! Week. There are also Red Ribbon Week tie-in activities. The resources are wonderful for both schools and individuals. Homeschoolers will find lots of helpful resources.
If you’re registered for Character Counts! Week, you can sign up to receive free video streaming from Film Clips for Character Education for 2 weeks! That’s probably my favorite freebie of Character Counts! Week. My family loves movies, and we definitely would have enjoyed using clips from blockbuster movies such as Liar Liar, Pay It Forward, and A Fellowship of the Ring with discussion guides. Another huge freebie is 2 weeks of online lessons from Practi-Quest on bullying prevention. (Note: You’ll find more anti-bullying resources in my posts Do You Follow the Thumper Theory? and The Golden Rule for Back to School)
Be sure to check out my previous Character Counts! Week posts, too! The links still work, and you’ll find many ideas for activities and lesson plans to use next week and throughout the year. There are even links to some character-based Halloween activities, including a character-based idea for giving away extra Halloween candy.
Character-Based Word Art Freebies
I like to use character-based quotations to inspire positive character traits. I have two versions of word art freebies based on a Montessori respect quote:
Check out my word art freebies category for many more character-based freebies. You’ll also lots of word-art inspiration at the Raising Figure Skaters Facebook page and on Pinterest! And much of it is character-based as well.
