We Choose Virtues Review

I have seen We Choose Virtues mentioned on several blogs in the past and everyone always seemed to really like the program.  So, I was really excited when we were given the chance to review the Parenting Cards from We Choose Virtues.

We Choose Virtues

We Choose Virtues is a fun curriculum used to help teach your children about virtues.  There are cute characters that the children will remember, and this will help them to remember the virtues they have been learning about and practicing.

We Choose Virtues

The Parenting Cards are teacher cards to be used at home, basically the homeschool version of this curriculum.  There are 13 cards, which are on printed on a card stock and are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches big.  These cards are an important part of the program and will be used every day.  They are meant for kids ages 3-11 and cost $38.49.  Each card includes a Bible verse and you can decide if you want it to be the NIrV or KJV.

We also received the WCV Download Bundle, which is for kids ages 3-11, is priced at $7.99 and includes the following items:

  • Teacher’s Handbook
  • Family Character Assessment
  • Coloring Pages
  • Butterfly Award
  • Sing-along-Song sheets

We Choose Virtues

This a closer look at what the cards look like- each card has a virtue and then a simple sentence or two about what that means in terms that kids understand.  Under that is a Bible verse that goes along with the virtue being taught.

We Choose Virtues

The back of each card has some teachable moments that give several suggestions for how to teach the virtue you are studying.  There is also a little story to go along with each virtue in “The Kids of VirtueVille” section where you get to meet one of the characters from VirtueVille.  The story always ends with a question to make kids think about why the character made the choice he or she made.

So, how did we use We Choose Virtues?

We Choose Virtues

I started off by introducing what we were going to be doing.  Hailey and I then both took the Family Character Assessment (PDF download).  This was great to look at to find the areas that we both need to work on (and to see what our strengths are too).  It is definitely easier to see the flaws in someone else than it is to see them in yourself…

Each week I chose a virtue card and added it to our calendar board.  On the first day I read the story on the back of the card and we talked about what the virtue meant.  The Teacher’s Handbook (PDF download) had some cute ideas to use to introduce and teach the virtues- so I used some ideas from there.  Each day I did something different that was listed on the back of the card- none of the ideas take very long, they are very simple to do, but they really get the point across.  They are a great parenting tool!

Hailey and Hunter both love to color, so each week they colored a page from the Kids of VirtueVille Coloring Pages (PDF download).  The picture they colored was a picture of the kid they met on the virtue card.  As soon as they finished coloring, Hunter wanted me to hang up the pictures right away- they are all hung up in a row and he really enjoys looking at them.

The week that we learned about being a helper was one of my favorite weeks- we learned about finding things that need to be done and just doing them without being asked.  Hailey was amazing!  She was constantly looking for things that needed to be done- like in the picture above, she decided to help by wiping Hunter’s desk clean after we had done a messy activity.

We Choose Virtues is a great way to help your kids learn and remember virtues.  It really only takes a short amount of time each day to cover the virtue and to do an activity from the back of the card, but they teach some great lessons.

Here is what is boils down to for me:

Easy to implement
Only takes a short time to use each day
Cute and memorable characters to help children remember the virtue
Hailey (age 7) and Hunter (age 2 1/2) both really enjoyed the activities we did and it is easily adaptable for a variety of ages.

I wish that the Teacher’s Handbook was available as an actual book, rather than just a PDF.  It is not necessary to print it, I just used it on my computer, but I really prefer to be able to hold a teacher’s guide in my hands when I look at it.  This is definitely not necessary, just something I like and I am usually willing to spend a little bit more to be able to have an actual hard copy.
