Teaching character to your students has never been more important...and We Choose Virtues makes it fun and easy.
These Teacher Cards are the foundation to our system for creating a culture and language of character in your classroom. If you can only purchase one product from us, make it THIS ONE!
With We Choose Virtues, teachers can focus on clarifying expectations through a simple, precise language and practical demonstrations, sparking conversation and growth...and your students will love the process!
We Choose Virtues is a creative, intuitive and relational way to integrate character skills training into real life choices.
The front of each Teacher's Virtue Card has catchphrases and antonyms for the virtue. The 12 Virtues included in this set are: I am Diligent, I am Obedient, I am Kind, I am Helpful, I am Forgiving, I am Honest, I am Perseverant, I am Self-controlled, I am Content, I am Patient, I am Gentle and I am Attentive!
The back of each Card has these five elements:
- TEACHER TIPS for understanding the value of each virtue.
- The KIDS OF VIRTUEVILLE story shows how a student can make choices to use the virtue.
- VIRTUE USER CHALLENGE suggests a way for the class to use the virtue for an entire day.
- DEMONSTRATIONS show ways the teacher can set up opportunities to practice the virtue and stretch the students' skills.
- WHAT TO SAY AFTER I'M SORRY shows how to correct the relationship conflicts that arise when virtue isn't used.
