The Little Way of Virtue Program is a Catholic virtue learning program for children K-5th grade, created by Behold Publications and inspired by the spirituality of St. Therese of Lisieux and the pedagogy of St. John Bosco. It is comprehensive in its material, spanning the nine months of the school year with daily ten minute activities about virtue.
Curriculum: Each month, the Little Way Virtue Program focuses on one virtue that is reinforced by getting to know one saint of the month and a scripture passage. The program is made up of twenty short ten minute daily activities for each month. The activities use different teaching dynamics to reinforce virtue such as games, memorization, coloring, crafts, role playing, group and personal reflections. There is a symbol for each month to help the children identify the virtue. Each saint of the month has a pet as well. Each month has a distinct color to help identify the activates for that month. The Little Way uses cartoons and animals to reach the students’ minds in an attractive and memorable way.
Materials: The Little Way Leader Curriculum Guide helps the teacher or educator lead the class on this journey of virtue each day. The Little Way Student Guide is a full color workbook with the daily activities for the students. The progress posters for each month come with a stamp to help teachers to motivate the children to further their practice of virtue.
