Encourage students in grades 3 through 8 to look beyond themselves and appreciate others with this Mom's Choice Gold Winner!
Boemont Junior High's very own Hugh Ohmee thinks he is the King of Griffin and everyone is there to serve him. Worse yet, he shows a total lack of gratitude for the nice things others do for him and thinks that being grateful is a sign of weakness.
For someone to never say please and thank you is one thing. But after Hugh complains about the free programs offered to students at his school not being enough, fellow student Willie Bohanon and his friends decide it's time to teach Hugh how to change his ungrateful attitude into an attitude of gratitude!
Lucky for Willie and his friends, school counselor Mr. J is around to help develop a plan. And with resources like Kendal Cobb, the hometown NFL hero who is willing to talk to the boys about keeping it R.E.A.L. - Recognize, Express, Appreciate and Learn - maybe even Hugh can turn his selfish ways around.
With catchy rhymes, songs and mnenomics, students learn how and when to show appreciation. Written and illustrated in a graphic novel style, this is the third story in the Urban Character Education series featuring Willie Bohanon and friends. 39 pgs.
Extend the learning with 20 downloadable activities from The Power of an Attitude of Gratitude Activity Guide.
The Urban Characer Education series also includes:
