THE SEARCH FOR GREAT BOOKS AND GOOD CHARACTER TRAITS!
Ahoy mates! Raise your sails for a high-seas adventure. Join Captain Steve and his friends as they take your students on an amazing voyage in search of treasure! That’s right, the treasure of great books and good character traits. Students will discover the importance of making wise choices while learning values such as:
Trustworthiness – Be honest! Have the courage to do the right thing!
Respect – Follow the Golden rule! Listen and be considerate of others!
Responsibility – Work hard! Do your best! Set an example for others!
Fairness – Play by the rules! Take turns and share! Treat others fairly!
Caring – Be kind! Be compassionate and show you care! Express gratitude!
Citizenship – Be a good neighbor! Obey the rules! Make a difference!
GOOD CHARACTER TRAITS MATTER!
A Character Education Development Specialist, Steve is certified by CHARACTER COUNTS! Character Counts is the most widely implemented approach to character education in the country. It is embraced by thousands of schools, communities, public agencies and nonprofits. Character Counts! is an educational framework for teaching universal values. It transcends politics, religion, and cultural differences.
GREAT BOOKS KEEP THE SHIP ON COURSE!
Using acclaimed books from the library and the Set Sail Reading List, Captain Steve will introduce the students to good character traits! Some of the books include: Treasure, by Suzanne Bloom, Caldecott Medal Winner: Flotsam, by David Wiesner, The Empty Pot, by Demi, Treasure Island, by Robert Louis and the popular Yes Day!, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Throughout the wonderful mix of audience interaction and surprising illusions Steve identifies some words and concepts from the Set Sail Vocabulary List. The words are presented carefully in context and defined so the boys and girls will have good reason to remember them. Teachers may find it useful to include some of the words as bonus vocabulary words, spelling words or words woven into lesson plans in the future.
STEVE IS THE CAPTAIN AT THE WHEEL!
Steve, while playing the role of ship Captain, is really the Amazing Teacher in disguise. All through his 45-50 minute presentation, the students will enjoy magic tricks, drama, puppets, surprises like a cute bunny named “Hopper” and a treasure trunk full of books and stories.
Special guest, Tucker Turtle (a puppet) interrupts the show searching for a letter, only to discover something even more valuable. Character is who we are on the inside. It is how we act when we think no one is watching. Along with Tucker, the students learn that good character is the real treasure in life.
GOOD CHARACTER TRAITS ARE VALUABLE EVERY DAY!
Based on strategic learning objectives in character education, the students will be challenged to:
Discover how to live responsible lives each day
Recognize the importance of listening to others
Consider the rewards of being honest
Discover three signs of citizenship at home and school
Use their imagination as a tool for adventure
Read for learning, enjoyment, personal growth and just for fun
DROP YOUR FISHING LINE PORT SIDE!
By the end of the program, boys and girls find out that down in the depths there is an outstanding benefit to HAVING good character—FRIENDSHIP!
As with all the Amazing Teacher programs, Steve makes reading, learning, entertainment and fun— a memorable, life-changing catch.
“Steve is a master at keeping kids attention and getting them actively involved in his presentation. He relates to very young children in an age appropriate way yet alters his delivery for older students.”

THE GREATEST TREASURE OF ALL!
Captain Steve will take the audience on an imaginary nautical adventure that results in finding treasure. Not something that you can see, or touch and feel, but rather something much more valuable. It is not gold or silver, nor is it precious gemstones or lots of money. Instead, your young readers will discover something they all desire most: FRIENDSHIP!
As with all the Amazing Teacher programs, Steve makes reading and learning fun— a memorable, life-changing catch.
