The most important thing you can teach your preschooler is character. It lays the foundation for all other learning.
In this 36 week course, preschoolers will not only learn 12 basic character qualities, but see them applied by the Boyer Cousins, people from the Bible and real people in American history! This fun curriculum is the result of people asking me what we did with our preschoolers and how to do it. It is very adaptable to your schedule and the individuality of your child. I LOVED the preschool years of my children. Hope you will too! My intention in writing this curriculum was to free you up and make it fun for both you and your children, stirring up that God-given love for learning! Qualities covered are Obedience, Patience, Honesty, Gratefulness, Responsibility, Respectfulness, Self-control, Initiative, Diligence, Kindness, Contentment, and Deference (sharing)
*For even better value, you can also purchase this set as part of the CCFP Complete Curriculum Set which assists in providing academic instruction as well.
Character Concepts Basic Character Curriculum includes the following:
Crossroads of Character: Learning to Make Wise Choices
This colorfully illustrated book teaches your child 12 basic character qualities, vital to your child`s understanding of how to make wise choices in their everyday lives. The Boyer cousins (my grandchildren) are the main characters in the simple but effective stories in decision making. The goal is to teach your child the definition of the character qualities (your child can`t implement character in their lives without understanding what it is), and also teaches them a Scripture verse, (what God says about it), and how to apply it to life on their level of understanding.
History for Preschoolers: Uncle Rick has recorded a CD set with stories of American heroes who also illustrate these character qualities in their lives. We supply a picture of these heroes in our Mom`s Guide so you can show them to your child as they listen to these Uncle Rick character stories. The whole family will enjoy listening to these inspiring stories with your preschoolers!
Learning Character with the Cousins Flashcards: These flashcards present the Character Qualities found in Crossroads of Character, simple, kid-friendly definitions, and a Scripture Verse to hide in their heart. Full-color pictures on the flashcards also make memorizing easier, as the child will remember the story that is associated with each character quality.
Learning ABC`s with the Cousins: A set of photographic flashcards for learning the alphabet sounds
Hands-on Character Building: Proven ideas and hands-on projects for teaching character along with direction for when to use them to assist in practically applying what they are learning.
Mom`s Guide: Supplies you with information to effectively teach your preschoolers for a full 36 week period. Patterns are given for seasonal and educational crafts. Suggestions are made for family fun trips to help make learning fun,and as a bonus, over 30 recipes are included for fun food to make with your preschooler.
Also included are Bible stories and pictures of a person in Scripture who illustrates this character quality in their life. Provided for your use are coloring pages for your child to use as you read them the Bible story provided. Also included are additional suggested materials we`ve found helpful for further learning, or even for birthday and Christmas gifts to enhance science and history education as well as educational puzzles for preschoolers, some of which can be purchased from Character Concepts.

"I just received my package yesterday and took some time to go through the materials. All I can say is WOW! Thank you so much for tapping into this age group with such a God honoring curriculum. The curriculum we use to homeschool begins with Kindergarten, and I”ve struggled with this preschool/preK year with my previous three daughters. I”ve searched high and low for an organized, easy to implement, Scripturally strong program to do with my kids at this age, one that will not be overwhelming for me as a busy homeschooling mother. I have one final daughter who is three years old, and your preschool curriculum is such a blessing. I can’t wait to jump in and begin! All glory to God of course, but thank you for your faithfulness and to the homeschooling community!"
"We used the Character Concepts for Preschoolers with my 4 and 6yo children with great success this school year. First of all, they really enjoyed it! They loved reading it over and over again. Secondly, we've seen the fruit. It's been easy to say, "Are you obeying Momma? What is obedience?" They then recite that obedience is doing what is expected of them, cheerfully, immediately and thoroughly. Then I ask them what God's word says about obedience. They repeat several verses we've memorized. If I am consistent in using this approach, I don't have to get upset and I don't have to struggle with explaining why they need to obey. God's Word convicts them and they realize that they are disobeying God....not just Momma. I have a framework and guide in this book for using God's Word to train my children. It's just wonderful."
