I-N-T-E-G-R-I-T-Y–Character Trait of November

Posted by lindamartinandersen on November 9, 2012

“I-N-T-E-G-R-I-T-Y–Character Trait of November” by Linda Martin Andersen


 “A Writer’s Playground”

A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.

November–a month for more than talk about turkeys…

When I was an elementary School Counselor in Cumberland County, NC, students studied character traits each month. Now, I have found another way to spread the word about good character.  I volunteer once a month for story time at a home school bookstore in my area. Check it out at www.thepilgrimsjourney.com.  

This month, like the Cumberland County Schools in Fayetteville, NC, I presented the character trait of INTEGRITY.   It’s defined as “Doing the right thing even when no one is watching. 

At Story Time, I read The Empty Pot by Demi.  A discussion of honesty and integrity followed, along with an optional art activity.    I hope you’ll locate a copy of this book and share it with a special child in your life.  Consider planting a seed in a pot after the reading.  It will lead to  future discussions about Ping’s actions and personal examples of  integrity.

I’d love to hear ways you show integrity.  Please leave a comment below.  Thank you for joining us at “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend.

Coming soon:  Two guests bloggers: One is a storyteller and author.  The other is a pilot and author. I hope you’ll meet them.
