WFMW - Preschool (and beyond!) Character Curriculum

One of the things I am most excited about for this school year is the Character Concepts for Preschoolers Curriculum that I purchased from theLearningParent.com.

We will be using the character part of the curriculum during breakfast so that everyone can learn from it. In fact, we couldn't wait and have been enjoying some of the books and the CDs since they came over a month ago.

After listening to the CD story on "obedience" on time, Brigitta (5) started quoting "We obey cheerfully, immediately, and thoroughly!" The younger children especially love Crossroads of Character: Learning to Make Wise Choices (they just call it the "cousins" book.)

The same Bible verse and character definition are repeated through the history story, Bible story, flashcards, and "Cousins" story to the memory work is effortless. I love that the Mom's Guide schedules everything out for me along with field trip suggestions, recipes, arts and crafts and more! By the end of the year we will have learned 12 character qualities, their definitions and supporting Bible verses.

I'll be using the preschool components with Heidi (3) mostly to have some one-on-one time with her in the morning before the busy-ness of our school day starts. The set comes with a workbook and flashcards, and the mom's guide has suggestions for history and science reading.
