  1. Our school uses these character traits everyday. One trait is picked per month and the entire school focuses on ways to demonstrate it throughout the month. It also ties in with our responsive classroom program, especially the morning meeting component. Students to exposed to these traits everywhere they turn, and it would be exciting to have these cute posters displayed throughout the school to help serve as reminders. Really Good Friends Show Really Good Character can also be reinforced during my monthly classroom lessons.

  2. I would love to use this in my office as a resource for friendship groups, working through each character trait and talking about how it is important in being a good friend. We also use these character traits as part of our character counts program and would be great to reinforce!

  3. What a great decorative piece to start my school counseling office design. They are cute, multicultural, and provide a common language and a tool to help students form these skills. I could use it in individual counseling to reinforce what I teach during guidance lessons. I could also post them in the hall in front of the office that students pass through everyday, so they have a constant reminder of these traits.

  4. These would be great to put out in the halls at my school. These traits are ones that we talk about in our school character pledge so I would love to integrate the posters and activities into our schoolwide character program. They are very bright and cheerful and would grab the students' attention.

  5. What a cute idea to use as a starter for the counseling bulletin board. The bright colors would grab the students' attention and the activity guide would allow teachers to continue our push for character development!

  6. I am a beginner with not a lot of resources or things for my wall so these would perfect!! I could use them to look at and as topics for small group lessons!!!

  7. I would use these as a conversation starter with students and ask what the words on the posters mean to them.

  10. I am doing a new characted ed program and these could highlight the theme for the month. I am doing class lessons on the theme.

  11. I spent the summer working on a counseling framework for my program and it is designed around the six pillars of character. This would be a great resource to use in my school.

  12. Wow! This would be so great for my, as of now, blank counseling room! I move in in 2 weeks. please help :)

  13. These are wonderful ways to get kids thinking about using the character traits in their friendships! I could use these in individual, small-group and even large classroom guidance lessons! I'm looking forward to downloading the activity guide whether I win these or not!

  14. What a great contest and great idea. My role is expanding from grades 4-8 to include K-3. I really appreciate finding out about resources like this through your blog

  15. I would love to use these as part of my "Getting Caught in The Act" Good Deed Character program. I could use them with various age levels in guidance classes as well and would love to have them in the hallway outside my office. I will use the guide either way. Thanks for sharing.

  16. We are working to start PBIS and continuing our character education curriculum this year, and this would be a great addition! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Our school focuses on a trait a month with weekly Gold Slip drawings every Friday and Principal Luncheon at the end of the month for those students demonstrating the character trait. Last year I started trying to teach the trait at the beginning of the month. These posters would definitely be a great addition to those lessons. Also, thank you SO MUCH for this blog.

  18. These colorful posters would be a great way to emphasize our school-wide approach to character development. I would feature a trait (poster) each month in our common area and ask students to attach examples of students displaying the character trait to the bulletin board. What a cool way to involve students in recognizing each other for positive behavior!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would use these for my group of kids and have them discuss each trait and situations in their own personal life where they have experienced a trait. This would demonstrate to others what it would look like and have each internalize the trait within themself.

  20. I am a fourth year school counselor, but this is my first year in a new school that has never had a school counselor before. I am creating a virtues program to incorporate character education into my Catholic school counseling program. We will focus on one virtue per month. These posters would greatly help me grow my program. I am creating a program from scratch and have to fill a completely empty office and bulletin board. Although I have a lot of great resources that I have been collecting over the past few years, I am always looksing for more.

  21. I could use these posters at the elementary school. I'm a K - 12 counselor at a small school and we have very little resources. Most things that I have, I buy with my own money. This year, I'm actually getting an office at the elementary and these would be great for me to use there.

  22. These would be great to use with my students. WE focus on one character trait a month and this would be a great resource. Thanks

  23. I coordinate the Character Education in my elementary building. These would be great to display in the primary wing to remind my students of what character traits we are working on each month. Also, we have a PBIS program in my building and students pictures are displayed in the lobby for following that trait. What a great background for those pictures that get sent home at the end of the year!

  24. Character Education is HUGE at our school, but money is not. We teach our children that having good character shows that you a good person on the inside, and will make people want to be around you. These posters would be awesome to use to really drive that point home. Each month our school celebrates a different pillar of character. Having these posters would allow children to see that their character counts every where (in the hall, playground, at home), and not just in the classroom.

  25. I love these posters!! How cute are they! I think they make a great colorful addition to anyone's office. I think character education is important at all levels but these would be especially great for elementary because they are colorful and really grab the young ones attention. I am excited to get one the website and view the activity guide. I also want to make sure to check out the ready to decorate journals. This seems like a really great program to use that is simple to use but still effective.

  26. I love how colorful and bright these posters are. I could use one a month for a bulletin board and have students look for pictures in magazines or draw pictures showing the trait. Thanks for the link to the activity guide!

  27. Our students have to sometimes wait in a long line to be served in the cafeteria. I would love to use these posters as an eye catching way to inspire good character with our K-5 students.

  28. I love the bright colors!
    Our campus uses these character traits, too. I would use them to decorate my office and use with small groups - sometimes bringing them into the classroom with guidance lessons.

    ReplyDelete
  29. These are great. Our school actually just started using Character counts this year and these would be perfect to throw into the mix as we try to make this a real school-wide initiative. I think it would be fun to post these in different locations all over the school and move them every few weeks. Kids can try to spot the good charater traits and maybe answer how each trait could be shown in that location.

  30. I have had the same bulletin board up in my office for a year! I would use these to change it up. We do character traits with kawanis clubs terrific kids. This would work perfectly!

  31. I would love to use these posters for my social skills and friendship groups! The cool thing is that I work with k-8 and these would be great for a wide range of ages.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love these cards! Not only do they showcase positive traits, but they are also culturally sensitive. I work in a school where there is very little cultural diversity, however, I am very cognizant of having posters, bulletin boards, crayons (multi-cultural ones) etc that depict diversity. I think this is important for students to see. This would be a great addition to a bulletin board, as I am heading a SEL curriculum at my school

    ReplyDelete
  33. It would be fun to make a sort of hopscotch game by attaching them to the floor. In groups or individual counseling, you could have students provide examples or discuss whichever one they land on.

    ReplyDelete
  34. These are so cute!! I would love to hang them up on a bulletin board in our school to decorate our very BORING hallways!! Very kid friendly pictures and the colors would be sure to get them to look and hopefully act!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love using these as a bulletin board. Our schools have many bulletin boards that do not get utilized to their fullest. I would be able to post these in our kindergarten wing, which would expose our youngest kiddos to theese crucial lifeskills everyday!

  36. I shared this on Twitter!

  37. These are so cute! I would love to use these at my elementary school. We are doing a word of the week character trait on morning announcements this year. Teachers are nominating students who demonstrate the trait, and every week we are picking a "WOW kid" (Word of the Week Kid) to go on our school marquee. These would fit right in!

  38. I am finishing my internship with hopes to be an elementary counselor! I would love to have these since I am just starting out, and have NO materials just yet :)

  41. I would like to use this set for a bulletin board for teachers and students where I would list books on each of the character traits. It would be great to encourage teachers to use character Ed themed books for read aloud time with students. It may encourage students to select those books from the library.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have several friendship groups starting very soon and I would love to use these posters as part of teaching these students about these very important character traits. I think then they could create their very own posters about what trait is the most meaningful to them and why.
