I Didn't Know I Could Be the Child Left Behind

By: Melissa Crawford Richard

Who is the child left behind? The child left behind can be the child who does not develop good study habits. The child who does not understand the importance of listening, organization, completing assignments, having a healthy body, and how the lack of these skills affects progress in school. I Didn't Know I Could Be The Child Left Behind focuses on what can happen when children don't take school seriously. It begins with a clever, reproducible story that can read by or to students. The illustrated pages include such minimal text as:

  • "I didn't know I could be the child left behind when I watched TV instead of studying for the test."
  • "I didn't know I could be the child left behind when I spent more time in the principal's office than in my classroom."

Educators may amplify the message of this direct, to-the-point story's eight lessons emphasizing the importance of:

  • Good work habits
  • Listening
  • Organization
  • Homework
  • Healthful living
  • Test taking

These lessons include additional stories, discussion questions, and activities. Reproducible supplementary activity sheets and suggestions for presenting the program to Grades K-2 and 3-5 are also included.

Digital content offers the book's reproducible pages and story in an easy-to-print/display PDF format.
