What better time to focus on values - a much needed but often overlooked area of study - than during the summer? And if it isn't summer, but you are looking for an innovative approach to teaching values in your classroom, you have found the right place! Nicole Schmidt presents four volumes of textbooks and journals, each covering 10 different values, to suit classroom, homeschool, summer school and summer camp needs. With simple lessons, fun exercises and an illustrative short story at the end of each chapter, this series is a must for any classroom. This volume, the second in the textbook series, covers the following values: charity, good sportsmanship, adventuresomeness, perseverance, consideration, optimism, cooperation, resourcefulness, entrepreneurship, and integrity. This textbook is designed to be used with The Value Tree Summer School Journal Volume II (either the Elementary Edition or the Pre-K and Kindergarten Edition, depending on the age of your students), sold separately. The textbook is appropriate for ages preschool through middle school.
