Peddlesfoots Character Education Curriculum Details:
Growing Years offers a character education program featuring a family of rabbits named the Peddlesfoots.  Through the stories of their many antics and trials, children learn about the importance of becoming children of good character. The stories have been combined with exciting lesson plans and activities for teachers to extend the concepts of trustworthiness, respect, perseverance, caring, citizenship, fairness, self-discipline, responsibility, and courage.  Besides the stories, children also enjoy the song CD, read-a-long CD, and Peddlesfoots puppets.

This series was written by Anita Collins, the owner/director of Growing Years, along with her son, Matthew Hill, and daughter, Lisa Workman, who are also teachers.  In 2006, the Peddlesfoots curriculum was selected as the centerpiece of a federally funded grant—Partnerships in Character Education—that was awarded to the Saginaw Intermediate School District.  After being rigorously researched for 4 years, the Peddlesfoots curriculum demonstrated significant increases in children’s pro-social behavior as well as improved academic achievement in literacy.  Separate levels of curriculum were developed for preschool, kindergarten, and first grades.
