Teaching children good character should be a priority for most parents. It is something that will help a child throughout their whole life. It is so sad when you see character lacking in an adult. Recently I was given a review copy of a brand new character curriculum for the little people in our lives, Little Lads and Ladies of Virtue by Kathie Morrissey of The Character Corner.
Little Lads and Ladies of Virtue is a character curriculum written especially for preschool & early primary school children. It is a Christian curriculum and assists parents in teaching Godly character to their young children. Little Lads and Ladies of Virtue covers 24 different character traits throughout the six month course. It is written to be used 5 days a week. The lessons hold a selection of various activities. The character trait definition and a corresponding memory verse are always taught at the start of the week . This is followed by some "I will" sentences which assist the child in learning how to use this character in real life. These are then reviewed daily with the goal that they will be fully memorised by the fifth day. The lessons also contain some practical teaching on what the character is & how it can be used in life. Each lesson takes just 5 to 10 minutes and any addition materials required are easily located around the house. A sweet colouring picture for each character trait is also included.
Kathie Morrissey has also written a copywork book for school students to complement the curriculum . This includes a short sentence for the student to replicate each day. Throughout the week they will copy out the definition, memory verse & the 'I will' sentences that they are memorising.
I used Little Lads and Ladies of Virtue with my two littlest lads Eli & Jud. My boys are at the top end of the age this is recommended for (they are eight). I found it a wonderful tool to teach them character trait definitions which is something I've been wanting to do for a while. I found the lessons were very easy to teach with minimal preparation. Eli & Jud did find the copywork book very easy. On the first day I didn't explain to complete just one sentence so they filled in two pages before I realised what was happening. I only wish I had this curriculum and copywork book a few years ago so I could complete it with all four of my children.
