With a variety of options, this set is perfect for teaching students about important character traits like courage, empathy, and perseverance. The fun activities will also help kids develop important skills like self-control, teamwork, and a strong work ethic.

I like to use coloring sheets in kindergarten as follow-up activities to my Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons. The coloring sheets help reinforce the focus of each lesson, plus they are very good for practicing fine motor skills! The sheets are also a great summary of the lesson that gets sent home so my students can talk about the topics with their grownups.

I have a variety of coloring sheets in my Teachers Pay Teachers shop! Today I want to share a little more about my Character set.
