Curriculum for 3rd to 5th Grade

A Curriculum to Help Students Value One Another

"Understanding Your Student's Motivational Gifts: A Curriculum for Teachers of 3rd to 5th Grade", is a revolutionary program that will help educators identify the God-given motivational gifts of their students. Educators in the public and private sectors as well as those in Christian schools and churches can use this program; a tool that will give educators a road map to teach their students about the motivational gifts. When children know why they do what they do - what motivates them to respond to life as they do - it is easier for them to appreciate and value their friends and peers.
