We Choose Virtues {review:take 2} & Giveaway!



This past year our family was introduced to We Choose Virtues and I have shared with you before about this curriculum.  I am really excited to share more with you today (and also a giveaway!).  


I was thrilled to receive a set of their faith-based parenting cards.  These cards are made from high-quality heavy paper and are nicely sized (8.5"x5.5").  The full-color front of the card features a kid from *Virtueville* along with a virtue, a catchphrase to help you remember the virtue, and also a Bible verse to help reinforce the virtue.  The back of the card (especially for the parent) includes a "virtue user challenge" for the whole family, teachable moments ideas, and even an "what to say after 'I'm sorry'" section to encourage proper correction.  These cards are available for $34.99.

We Choose Virtues uses 3 main icons to teach virtues: a caterpillar, a butterfly, and a magnifying glass.  The caterpillar simply means there is room for improvement: "I don't have to stay the same, I am born to change".  The butterfly stands for making the right choice to choose virtue.  And the magnifying glass says "I will never stop looking for the virtue in you".   


These icons really come into play with the next product we received from We Choose Virtues: 100 Days of Virtue Chart with Butterfly Stickers.  This poster is also made from high-quality paper and measures 11"x17".  This chart will help your family have a great visual reminder of how they are doing on growing in virtue.  As your children are showing growth in different virtues you simply place a butterfly sticker over the appropriate caterpillar to show they are growing and changing.  When all of the caterpillars have transformed into butterflies you will have achieved 100 days of virtue!  That's definitely cause for celebration!  This chart is available for $13.99.


This is their Kids Virtue Poster, which retails for $14.99.  It measures 11"x17" and it, too, is printed on heavy, high-quality paper.  It has all 12 of the virtues this program focuses on along with their catchphrases.  I love how colorful it is!  It's a great way to have a reminder hanging around to reinforce having virtue.  


My children are benefiting so much from learning about virtues.  This is a daily process in our home--for me, as well.  We all need to be reminded about certain virtues sometimes, don't we?  Even though the target age for this curriculum is Early Education through Elementary, I believe that all families can benefit from it.  I am so pleased with all of the products I have seen from We Choose Virtues.  This product was developed by people who love children and truly desire to see them grow their best potential.  I hope you will take the time to visit their website and learn more about their products.  


We Choose Virtues has shared a special promotional code that you can use when checking out your purchase on their site: VIRTUE20.  When you use this code you will receive 20% off of your shopping cart!  

If you are a teacher in a school, We Choose Virtues also has some amazing classroom kits.  They are offering a special on those as well through September.  Use the promotional code START25 to receive 25% off any kit over $99.
