What Is The Best Character Building Homeschool Curriculum?

One reason most parents decide to homeschool is to raise their children in a godly environment and instill character building attributes that depict such. Some parents may not see character building as a vital part of homeschooling, but it can be just as important – if not more – than simply learning conceptual facts.

The Bible

The Bible itself is often overlooked as one of the best curriculum resources known to man. You can pull many activities and learning opportunities using just the Bible itself. With a quick Google search, you can find a topical list of just about every character trait you can think of. For younger children, simply reading the scriptures will suffice. 

For older children consider:

Lads & Ladies of Virtue Character Curriculum

The first 5 years are the formative years, therefore, the best time to start a homeschool character curriculum. But knowing which character building traits to start with can sometimes be a blur. On top of that, figuring out when to start teaching which character building principles can be confusing. With a resource like Lads & Ladies of Virtue, you’ll be given 24 character traits to teach your preschool/early elementary-aged children.

This resource provides you with six months of character lessons with little preparation, helping you take the guesswork out of what to teach (win-win). Each lesson is laid out with definitions, memory verses, application activities, and more. Build godly character in 10 minutes a day. Top it off with the reward chart and character badges – both included!

Character Building Curriculum for Elementary Kids

Lads & Ladies of Wisdom Character Curriculum

This curriculum for elementary children is a sequel to Little Lads & Ladies of Virtue, an excellent choice of homeschool virtues curriculum. If you have elementary-aged children, you can just start with this character training curriculum. It is made to be adaptable for grades 1-6 and gives you the ability to select activities based on your child’s abilities. For the copywork, you can conveniently choose between print and cursive.

If you’re looking for a curriculum that only takes 5-10 minutes of teaching time, this is it. It’s also laid out with everything provided for you. Memory verses, games, object lessons, and prayers – all laid out in a 5-month learning format. 

Teaching Character through Literature

This resource is perfect for the homeschooling mom looking for a teacher guide that uses real books to teach biblically-based character traits. Furthermore, it’s another great resource when looking for ways to teach younger children the importance of building a good character. 

The relaxed structure allows you to take each of the 13 lessons and complete them within one to two sessions, or whatever you prefer to meet your children’s needs. The readings come from both the Bible and questions from the children’s books that are good conversation starters and life application builders. 

Character Sketches

Known for its eye-appealing wildlife illustrations, this resource is perfect for those morning basket family Bible study times. This resource is perfect for all age levels, including adults. Character Sketches uses a dramatic animal story to present a moral lesson based on character traits. There is a question posed at the beginning of each chapter and each story is paired with a Bible story.

This resource also extends into other subjects – perfect for homeschoolers who like to blend subjects together. The detailed background and science information with illustrations about the animals provide a great science lesson.

Do I need to focus on character?

As with any other aspect of homeschooling, incorporating what you’d like to teach takes time and planning. These Christian homeschool character resources will help you plan activities and learning experiences that instill biblically-based character traits in your children. The benefit of being intentional in teaching godly character traits will last for years to come.
