Resources for Developing Caring Schools

TeRRiFiCC Teachable Moments (3rd -6th)

TeRRiFiCC Teachable Moments is a character development resource for educators and caregivers of children from pre-kindergarten to second grade (Level I) and third to sixth grade (Level II). Each booklet is a set of 75 activities with short (about 10-minute) hands-on, minds-on activities or mini-lessons meant to reinforce and encourage children to make positive character choices. Illinois Learning Standards are identified for each lesson. The activities are categorized using the Six Pillars of Character—Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship—identified by the Josephson Institute of Ethics and used in CHARACTER COUNTS! programming. Each activity presents the behaviors, objectives, materials, and procedure for completing the activity. Additional helpful hints are also included for many activities. Available as a stand-up “flip-book” or searchable CD.
