Character Education goes hand and hand with God’s Word.

The character we exhibit has a dramatic impact not only on how we treat our family and community members, but also has a direct role in our success in spreading the Gospel, as well as, becoming tomorrows leaders.

The We Choose Virtue homeschool faith based kit includes everything you need to train your children ages 3-12  in righteous biblical character that will instill timeless values.

What’s included in the Homeschool Kit?

    •  The Kids Virtue Poster
    •  The Three Rules Poster
    •  13 Parenting Cards
    •  3 Kids of Virtueville Mini Posters
    •  12 Flash Cards
    •  1 pad/25ct Virtue User Review
    • 100 Days of Virtue Chart and stickers

How it works for our family

Our family concentrates on one new virtue a week while reviewing the previous virtues.  With little or no prep time, and the suggested 10 minutes of teaching virtues each day, I am amazed how quickly my whole family learns and applies each new virtue!  Even though the curriculum is geared towards younger children, my high schoolers participate and help remind the little ones of the virtues when needed.  This will continue to be a constant work in progress!
Each Monday, I introduce the specific virtue card to the children.  The little ones color the virtue page from the FREE PDF coloring book that comes with the kit during our discussion time.  We talk about ways we can demonstrate the virtue and specific examples of neglecting to demonstrate the character trait.  It took several weeks for the children to recognize their struggles, but they are pin pointing their issues more freely each week.  We review the memory verse and parenting cards each day throughout the week.
We have the Three Rule Poster and Kid’s Virtue Poster on our refrigerator.  I continue to add the mini posters in our school room as we discuss new weekly virtues.  I recommend laminating them for longer use.

We will utilize the 100 Days Virtue Chart, stickers, and pad after we have completed all 12 virtues.  I love the concept that the whole family must demonstrate the virtue of the day in order to get a sticker.  This will encourage accountability.

I plan on purchasing a fun hat for the little ones to wear when they exhibit excellence virtue for the day.  This was a clever and fun idea that was suggested in the parent guide.

Results of We Choose Virtues in our Family

Last summer, my younger sons 7 and 5 were spending the week at my parents house.  They went to the pool and had to wait 3 hours until the thunder depleted.  Each time it thundered, they would say, “I’ll wait, and I’ll wait, and I”ll wait with a smile on my face.

They have more patience than their mama!

Also, my 3 year old repeats the virtue statements throughout the day.  She might not understand what they truly mean, but she will eventually.
