Is The Behavior Conduct Or Clinical?

Is The Behavior Conduct Or Clinical?

Teachers will respond or react to a student who exhibits verbal or physical conduct problems. I mean, that’s our job right? But what about the kid whose head is down on his desk, the kid who is just so quiet that you wonder what is going on behind those eyes, the kid who is disaffected but really is not a behavior problem at all? Often we can be so concerned about the outward conduct of our students that the disaffected kid can get lost in the sauce. This kid needs our help.

Character Education Flash Cards

Character Education Flash Cards

These cards are designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn some unique character qualities that are essential for lifelong success. There are 16 cards that can be shown to the students. The teacher has the answer key which he/she uses to determine if the student gave the right definition for the quality. The opposite of the quality is also provided so that the student can get an idea of what the quality does and does not mean. These cards are an excellent way of assuring that students have a clear understanding of the qualities that are associated with success and what will contribute to their own maturity and personal growth. Memorizing is a great way for students to begin to ingrain this information into their life. Once they have an understanding what each quality means it will become easier to live out the quality. (Grades 2-4)
