Character Counts comes to the 8th grade!
In our short story unit, a representative from Character Counts came and team taught with Mr. Johnson. We discussed the importance of character counts at all levels. The students then wrote children books for 5th / 1st grade classrooms that focused on a pillar of character. These can be found on the 8th grade page. (2013)
A representative of Character Counts also helps to review the books each year.
