Travis & Presley offer an innovative curriculum featuring Presley the brindle boxer that reinforces essential life skills and character development while demonstrating the importance of using good manners. Using good manners demonstrates a respect for yourself and others. Research shows that when children act out of kindness and respect for others, they are better accepted by their peers and bullying behavior decreases.

This unique and engaging year-long program is designed specifically for Pre-K to Grade 2 children and highlights eight good-manners themes featuring Presley, the brindle boxer:

· How to Deal with a Bully
· Please and Thank You
· Good Teamwork
· Good Table Manners
· Respecting Others
· Be Polite
· It’s Okay to Be Different
· Share and Take Turns

Lessons aligned to Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.

Each lesson begins with a read-aloud, guided reading lesson, or video presentation followed by discussion prompts that increase children's understanding and application of the concepts modeled by Travis and Presley. Each lesson also includes a practical application and writing activity.
