Character Education for Elementary School Students

First impressions are made within seven seconds. In Character Education for Elementary Children, we teach students how to present themselves in a variety of situations. Lessons include greeting others, first impressions, appreciation, communicating with others, attitude, fairness, and trust. We address the consequences of negative profiling and bullying. By popular demand, because we eat three times a day, table skills are taught also.
