Welcome to this simple program that will inspire your family live the Virtue-life! This lesson plan will help you get the most out of your PARENTING CARDS from We Choose Virtues.
If you own the Parenting Cards, and want to upgrade to either the Homeschool Kit or the Family Kit a lesson plan will be included in that upgrade.
At the beginning of the lesson plan, you will be asked several questions to help you to tailor the Parenting Cards to fit your particular needs
What ages are your children? This lesson plan was designed ages 3-11, but we have suggestions for older or younger children included.
How many WEEKS do you want to teach Virtues each YEAR? This lesson plan helps you plan to instruct year-round (52 weeks) or use an academic calendar schedule (38 weeks). You will start the program off with an introduction week. Every week after that you will learn a new Virtue until you have learned all 12, then there is a review week, and you start again. You will continue this cycle 3 or 4 times, depending on how any weeks you choose to teach.
How many DAYS do you want to teach Virtues each WEEK? We have included ideas for teaching Virtues five days per week, but there is lots of flexibility.
How long do you want to teach Virtues each DAY? We suggest that you teach Virtues for 10-15 minutes each day. In addition, it is important to reinforce Virtues throughout the day, as teachable moments naturally arise.
This lesson plan will give you lots of ideas for teaching one Virtue each week, doing different exercises every day. You could choose to take take quite a bit of time each day if you do every suggestion we offer, but this gives you plenty of ideas to keep your lessons fresh as you repeat each of the 12 Virtues 3 or 4 times per year.
This lesson plan comes in Faith-based or Secular. Please select the version you prefer.
