Today, I’m excited to tell you about a great character-training product for children. We Choose Virtues offers some great tools for parents, homeschoolers, teachers, churches and Sunday Schools, etc.
(They are having a great sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and you can get 30% off your entire purchase! Use code Friday30 and Monday30 respectively)
I received the family kit to try out with my kiddos. (This kit is usually $69.99, but with the sale today and Monday, you can get it for $48.99!).
This kit includes:
- The Kids Virtue Poster-This is great! It’s the perfect size for just hanging up on the wall to refer to! It includes the basics about each virtue, including the am/not statements.
- The Three Rules Poster–I love this! It’s great for younger children who aren’t readers. This poster is a great visual reminder for kids. We refer to it often, and since the “rules” are short and sweet, they are easily remembered even for my 3 and 5 year old.
- 13 Parenting Cards– (They are regularly $34.99, so less than $25 if you buy during the sale). These cards are fabulous! The front has the colorful cartoon representation of the virtue, along with the am/not statements and a verse (you can get them without verses as well). The back is full of ideas for teaching these: Each one has a “user challenge,” a brief description/definition of the virtue, a sample apology for when the virtue is not followed, and a list of teachable moments for that virtue. There is also a card with some great ideas for teaching and demonstrations to help your child learn (and implement!) these virtues.
- 12 Virtue Flash Cards–If you are interested in the program, but tight on cash (like we are!), these are a great way to get started. They are affordably priced at $14.99), and include everything you need for learning the virtues. The front of the card includes the virtue, along with a (super cute) colorful cartoon representation of it. The back of the card includes the am/not statements, along with a verse if you choose that option. They also come with an idea card with 3 different games you can play with the flash cards. These cards are a perfect size for use with our morning board (I really need to share that here soon!).
I have some great stuff for you guys as well. First of all, they are having a great sale, and you can receive 30% off your ENTIRE shopping cart! The sale is good Black Friday (use code: Friday30) and Cyber Monday (use code: Monday30).
Finally, Heather has generously allowed me to offer up a set of the Virtue Flash Cards! The cards are one of my favorite products because they are very affordable (Regularly $14.99, $10.49 if you purchase today or Monday), and they include all the information you need to get started.
