Character Building Activities

  During the school year our first grade students watch a video called "Free the Horses".  It is an adventure movie that gives students character building techniques.  It also reinforces the idea if situations become difficult they can stick to it, and with determination and effort they will be able to overcome their obstacles.  Off an on during the school year they watch the video and do various activities and worksheets that are correlated to the video.  Here is an example of students doing a worksheet on having a positive or negative attitude.  The worksheet connects thier positive feelings   as clear bright sunny thoughts, and negative feelings as being stormy.
