Teaching character to your elementary-aged children doesn’t have to be hard, and it doesn’t have to take a long time each day. It can also BE FUN!
Lads & Ladies of Virtue Character Curriculum provides you with 5 months of character lessons, which will take minimal preparation, and can be taught in 5-10 minutes a day. The lessons include a memory verse for the week, and 5 daily lessons a week.
What are three activities that an educator could use to teach character and values to students?
Provided in the 20 weekly lessons are a memory verse, 3-4 KEYS that relate to applying the character quality in their daily life, games, object lessons, or role-play, and a prayer for the child to pray about applying what they have learned. There is also a coloring page for each lesson.

This is an EASY and FUN way to help your kids grow and become lads and ladies of wisdom!

Character training for elementary-aged children
This curriculum for elementary children is a sequel to Little Lads & Ladies of Virtue, our preschool/early elementary character curriculum. If you have elementary-aged children, you can just start with this curriculum. It is made to be adaptable for grades 1-6. For the younger kids, have them only memorize the main part of the Bible verse, rather than the whole thing.
