"Strengthening students' character is highly relevant to overcome moral crisis in this country. Moral crisis that occurs today is very worrying because it is not only done by adults but also by children. Examples of character aberrations lately are bullying, violence, and sexual harassment among children. Elementary school age is included in the golden period, so this stage becomes the most appropriate momentum to build and strengthen students' character. Caring character can be defined as a sense of interest, affection, and attention to others which will then be embodied in attitudes or behavior in appreciating, receiving, or helping. Effort that can be done to strengthen the children caring character is by integrating the values of local wisdom in learning. One example of integrated local wisdom in thematic lesson 1 of "My Interest" with the subtheme Singing and Dancing is a song entitled "Dhondong Apa Salak". The message conveyed in this song is that as humans we should not judge a person by appearance. Every person is also created differently like sweet salak fruit and sour kedondong. Therefore, people must respect each other.
