We Choose Virtues TOS Crew Review

Pin It Now!

 Being Virtuous is an important character quality I want all of us in our family to have. Helping hands I can find along the way to help us all on the path of character building virtues is a friend to me. Some of us on the TOS Crew were given the opportunity to review a new product from the folks at We Choose Virtues . This pocket sized new product is called Virtue Clue Cards.

   We were given a pack of the Virtue Clue Cards,Teacher's Handbook, Kids of Virtueville Coloring Book(download only). We were also given downloads that are available for free on their website, such as Family Character Assessment, this is a great tool for helping you decide which of the We Choose Virtues products would work best for your family. Kids Memory Verses, Bible Heroes and Truths is another great resource that is currently available as a free download on the We Choose Virtues site.

  Here is a little background info about the creator of We Choose Virtues Products....

We Choose Virtues was created by Heather McMillan, my wife of 20 years, out of her love for children and her desire to see them reach their personal potential. As a preschool teacher and a children’s pastor, it concerned her how often she came across children whose lack of self control, honesty and perseverance was almost debilitating. How could they succeed in life without the skills that come from good character?

  Helping to instill Godly Character Traits has never been easier with the brand new product Virtue Clue Cards. They are small enough to take on the go, they are the size of business cards and come in a handy little vinyl pouch and at only $5.99 is an economical way to get started. These cards are geared for preschool throughout Elementary school but there are other products available for all ages through 18 yrs old. There is so much more to the lineup over at We Choose Virtues, for instance the Homeschool Pack that is just full of valuable teaching tools for your homeschool adventures. Kit includes flash cards, Kids Virtue poster, three Kids of Virtueville mini-posters, parenting cards, 25 sheet pad of Virtue User Review, 16 sheet pad of Personal Virtue Charts, The Three Rules poster, and Handbook and Coloring Book downloads all for $99.99. See the We Choose Virtues website for a full listing of all their products and pricing.

   All of the We Choose Virtues products help teach the 12 virtues of Godly Character. Characters with catchy names, such as Stop Sign Madeline (I am Self-Controlled), teach children about 12 virtues:













  We used the cards one at a time, each week focusing on a new Virtue to brush up on and help keep us on track. If you were caught being virtuous then you got a star on the chart we made. If you had a star next to your name for the whole week we put a marble in our jar. We use our marble jar to work towards fun outings. The boys can earn marbles for being extra good, helping without being asked, doing their chores, completing school work without delay and for showing Godly Character on a consistent basis. When our marble jar is full we take a fun field trip or buy something fun for our classroom or home.
  The Virtue I find the kids struggle with the most is keeping their self control. So we worked on this one for 2 weeks and I find the kids are trying so much harder to stay on track.

  We have enjoyed using the Virtue Clue Cards, and I am looking into purchasing the Homeschool Kit for our Family. It is so nice to be able to have the freedom to use whichever products and curriculum add ons we find useful for our family. Instilling good Virtues into my kids and keeping everyone refreshed is an important aspect of our homeschool and I love that I can work on this with my kids on a daily basis and see them continue to blossom in to Men of Character and follow the path that God is taking them on.

  If you would like to help your children become more virtuous then please check out all of the fine products available at We Choose Virtues. Whether they are small and you are just starting out or you have older kids like me and maybe you just need to all brush up and get back on track. They are sure to have something for every family that would make a good fit.  Don't forget to visit the Clearance Rack while you are there, if you are anything like me you don't want to miss the bargains.
