The answers are probably "Sure!" "Yes!" "Absolutely!" "But I have a hard time getting them started." Or, "Yes, but my kids don't like to write; they find it difficult."

1. Creating Comics While Building Good Character is a Character Ed. project created for the in-person or virtual classroom (Grades 3rd-8th). This program is intended to help students:
This approach to character education is engaging, effective & rewarding for many students. Students tell stories showing respect, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, responsibility, and citizenship through comic strip writing (electronically,like the one shown here). The project culminates with a published class comic book by SunriseKid Publishing that can then be checked out by all to read in your class or school's library! The program presents an ideal way for students to express and relay meaningful messages that can help to build positive character traits. Students are able to choose their own characters, backgrounds, character poses and much more in order to get the exact look and message across to tell their story.
Why use Comics to promote positive character traits?
*Send an email to request some brochures for your teachers and school.
2. If you are an individual student age 8-17 and interested in making your own comic strips, this is a great time to get started. You and your parents can send me an email and we'll get you going on your project. SunriseKid Publishing also helps you get your comics published into a book that is custom designed by you, as well. (Similar to the book shown above)
Fall topics to write about could include:
**In addition to comic strip scenarios that help to build positive character traits, the comic strip generator can also be a great learning tool that helps to reinforce new vocabulary and other concepts being taught in school. Plus, of course, let’s face it, writing comics is just plain fun, as you are able to use your infinite creativity and develop story lines that can be truly funny, sad, scary, superhero like, sci-fi, or mystery etc., to share with your family and friends.
As a Reading Specialist for over 15 years, I have worked with many Arizona elementary and middle school students, helping them to achieve their reading and writing goals. However, I have also witnessed that blasé attitude students take on when their reading and writing efforts only amount to a grade on a test or an assignment.
As a Reading Specialist for over 15 years, I have worked with many Arizona elementary and middle school students, helping them to achieve their reading and writing goals. However, I have also witnessed that blasé attitude students take on when their reading and writing efforts only amount to a grade on a test or an assignment. For this reason, I decided to create the SunriseKid Publishing program, where students get their stories published, celebrated and shared by others. The SunriseKid program provides that special opportunity for valley students to express their joy for writing while becoming real book authors in the process.
To see the joy and excitement on the faces of students when I walk into a classroom to deliver their published books literally brings tears to my eyes. In addition, the books we publish for students, both hard copies and ebook copies, elicits that desire to read together as a family making many happy memories for years to come.
