I have been using We Choose Virtues with my 3 and 5 year old daughters. One of the biggest benefits to using the Parenting Cards with the other complimentary products is that you can use them however it works best in your homeschool. It is not designed to be a structured curriculum, rather in minutes a day when you can fit it in, you take the time to focus on one virtue. They suggest using one virtue per week and it doesn't matter which one you start with. In our house, the girls have been having a really hard time remembering to be kind to each other, especially when it comes to sharing toys. So we started with kind then moved on to self-controlled, content, obedient, and so on. We read the front of the card every day and colored the coloring pages to go along with the virtue. Lillian liked to have the card in front of her while coloring the pages so she could make them match. Throughout the day when I saw her not being kind to her sister I would gently remind her of Kettle Grettle and the being kind virtue. When I did see her being kind I would praise her for remembering to be kind. Lillian really liked the little stories on the back of each cards about the Kids of VirtueVille.
The cards are made of good quality card stock and are thick and sturdy. I think that laminating them would allow them to stand up even longer. The suggested age range is 3-11, but in my opinion these would work the best with the younger elementary ages or the older children could help teach them to the younger children.
