The Literacy Strand – an Intrinsic Component
The CAN DO! Curriculum Connection™
While The CAN DO! Curriculum Connection is a character education program, intrinsic to this program is the continued development of Language Arts and Reading skills. Song lyrics are a mainstay in developing reading fluency. With great validity, the teacher can dedicate one or more reading or Language Arts periods per week to this unique program and therefore has the option of utilizing the program within allocated reading or Language Arts time slots. (Seat work or homework assignments are optional)
In addition to exciting, informative songs with Questioning & Discussion strategies presented for interaction within The CAN DO! Circle (K-6) or The Circle (7-12), the program also offers a series of books for Primary/Intermediate and Upper Grade Levels.
The CAN DO! Adventure Series™ – Primary/Intermediate
The CAN DO! Adventure Series includes 14 volumes that follow the adventures of positive role model “characters” from “Constellation CAN DO!”. Story lines instill positive values and self esteem, stimulate higher level thinking skills, delight the imagination and inspire students to
“Be the BEST you can be!”
The Circle Series – Upper Levels (7-12)
The Circle Series for Upper Level students include the sometimes troubling and serious issues pre-teens and teens face in today’s world such as drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence and Teen suicide. Each story is presented with the utmost sensitivity to the reader. Students can identify with the emotional highs and lows of the characters that are struggling with – and ultimately triumph over these challenging experiences.
