We Choose Virtues – Review

Photobucket

We Choose Virtues provides Character Education Curriculum for “Simply Inspiring Character That Lasts”!  Heather McMillan created We Choose Virtues in response to the lack of self control, honesty, and perseverance she saw in the children she came in contact with as a preschool teacher and children’s pastor.  I received the Virtue Clues Cards, The Teacher’s Handbook, Kids of Virtueville Coloring Book, in exchange for an honest review, as well as free downloads from their website: Family Character Assessment, and Kids Memory Verses, Bible Heroes & Truths.

Characters with catchy names, such as Stop Sign Madeline (I am Self-Controlled), teach children about 12 virtues:Photobucket

We have been introducing a new Virtue Clue Card and character in our home each week, along with the relevant Kids Memory Verses.  My just-turned-8-year-old daughter has enjoyed colouring each character in the colouring book after its introduction.  I am having her memorize the catchy phrases.  Discussion comes up throughout the week, as I catch her being Attentive or not being Attentive and call her on it, for instance.  She also likes to point out when her big brother, age 12, isn’t attending to one of the virtues 🙂  I have been focusing on using We Choose Virtues with my daughter, but my son has also been in on the discussion of each virtue, and I think it’s been helpful for him as well, and helpful for my daughter to have the big brother she looks up to, be included.
