Character Classics is a comprehensive character education program that uses fun character songs set to classical music. The twelve core ethical virtues include: attentiveness, truthfulness, thankfulness, contentment, respect, kindness, patience, obedience, dependability, self-control, perseverance, and goodness. The kit also includes activities, coloring pages, and meaningful discussion topics. Many children are not equipped with fundamental social and coping skills, but through a program like this, they can be taught these skills and how to apply them. It will also provide a better understanding for all children on how to interact with others in a positive social manner. This is a program that can be taught and revisited throughout the year and then used again the next year to reinforce the character traits at a higher level.
