We Choose Virtues was created by a mother that asked herself how can my children succeed in life without the skills that come from good character? She knows how important character training is. She has created a curriculum that instill amazing character traits in children (and adults too) in just 10 minutes a day.
There are 12 Virtues in the Early Childhood through Elementary set. They are…I am Diligent, I am Kind, I am Helpful, I am Obedient, I am Forgiving, I am Perseverant, I am Gentle, I am Patient, I am Self-Controlled, I am Content, I am Honest, and I am Attentive.
What I received was the Virtue Clue Cards
The way I used these items is first I read through the Teacher’s Handbook. Which gave me some insight on many of the products We Choose Virtues products as well as how they can be used.
Next I decided to have a separate meeting with each of my children over the Family Character Assessment. I had each child take their own, as well as I gave my input to them. It was truly amazing to me how honest they were about their faults. I even took an assessment of my own.
Now I was able to see what each child (and myself) needed to work on the most.
We had the coloring book, which was great for the younger two. It really helped Katey to get to know the Kids of Virtueville.
Now for my favorite part, what I did with the cards, is I simply kept them in my purse. Whenever I noticed a behavior that they were doing great at or needed a reminder to work on, I pulled out the card for that virtue.
For example we recently went to a funeral and the kids were getting restless. I pulled out the reminder card and then I pulled out the patience card. It worked perfectly.
At the grocery store, same thing. One child was wanting, I pulled out the first card as well as the Content card.
I never even had to say anything to anyone. They understood as soon as they saw the cards.
Here is the back of those two cards. It helps you to learn the names of the kids as well as an enthusiastic statement.
