Our Virtue Lessons for KidsHelp Catholic Kids Practice and Live Their Faith in a Real Way.
“Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” -Phillippians 4:8
Our Virtue Lessons
Our Virtue Lessons are uniquely Catholic and designed to be used one virtue at a time, daily, over a month. With a weekly core lesson, daily reinforcement with scripture discussions, prayer, and the incentive progress sheets, children quickly learn how to practice the virtues well.
Even the very young and the “I’m too old for this” set can glean solid faith-building essentials from these materials. Don’t let the graphics fool you; faith and fun can go hand in hand.
Fun Catholic Unit Studies Focus on the Virtues
These Catholic lessons focus on introducing children grade K-6 to virtues using fun, inviting materials that feature bright, modern graphics and various activities. Each unit study includes worksheets, discussion starters, cut-n-paste activities, Bible study, a prayer, a poster, Saint study opportunities, Aesop’s Fables, copywork, a reading list, and so much more. There is even a cute certificate of mastery to give students when they have completed the lesson!
What Is a Virtue?
A virtue is a practice of doing what is good. In being virtuous, we can serve others, perform works of mercy, and be the loving child of God that we were created and called to be. When we live the virtues, we imitate Christ (CCC:1803).
LESSONS ARE FLEXIBLE
Use any of the virtue unit studies over a month or pick and choose only the materials you want to use for a one-time lesson or supplement to other curricula.
MODERN GRAPHICS ADD VIBRANCY
Each of Our Virtue Lessons features a fun, colorful thematic image sure to call to the hearts of young learners. Many lesson elements include color and black-and-white versions.
GREAT SELECTION OF MATERIALS
Our materials appeal to multiple ages and learning styles. There is something for everyone – drawing fun, reading lists, progress charts, mini-books, cut-n-paste activities, and more.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” -Proverbs 15:2
Children develop good moral character and first begin to recognize good, virtuous living in their families. Parents are the first teachers of their children. As Christians, the couple must teach and train their children surrounded by God’s love and according to His laws. As the children branch out into the world and begin meeting people outside their immediate family, their ability to distinguish between right and wrong, truth and injustice, and Godly and worldly things, needs to grow in strength as well. Our Lord asks us to preach our faith, but also to live it. But how can we teach our children to do this at such a young age? By encouraging daily prayer, regular mass attendance, reading God’s Word and other uplifting literature, and, of course, through practice. And Our Virtue Lessons can help parents, teachers, and catechists teach children about virtuous living!
