We Choose Virtues is a character building curriculum that I was asked to review. Being a parent of only one child, and one with pretty good manners at that, I didn't think that we would 'need' this too much, but who doesn't want their children to be he best that they can be, right?
When we received the package in the mail it came with these wonderful and colorful character cards with great catch phrases to help remember the virtues. The one virtue that we worked on the most was "Content", that's one that we struggle with daily around our house, Twinkle Toes is spoiled, it was only recently that we started adding rotten to that, spoiled rotten! Mooooommmmm why do I have to do 2 lessons of math, mooommmm can I pleaasseeee stay up late, moooommmmm I don't want to do my chores, well I am sure you get the idea! Don't get me wrong she is a very bright girl with wonderful manners, it's just that pesky whining (being Content) that we are working on.
I gave Twinkle Toes the Character Assessment that came with this great curriculum and was actually surprised at how she answered some of the questions, but this was about how SHE felt about her virtues, not me.
Once the character assessment was done, we got started on our virtues, we loved the coloring pages for each of the virtues! When you order We Choose Virtues you can pick Christian or a secular, we of course chose Christian and I love how they integrate a bible verses to go along with each virtue. We Choose Virtues also comes with a wonderful 52 page Teachers Handbook that has everything so easy to understand about this curriculum, and if you are anything like me, I need great instructions that are easily understood when I teach my girl!
After a few weeks on working on our Virtues and memorizing Bible verses I am happy to say that I have seen wonderful results in Twinkle Toes and I feel that this is just the beginning that I am seeing now. I can't wait to see long term how these wonderful virtues play part in our lives!
