What words come to mind when you think about coaching your children in the ways to behave and the attitudes to display? Challenging? Repetitive? Thankless? Enjoyable? Fun? Whatever your experience, the fact remains that character traits generally need to be taught to children they don't just show up on their own! So what does the Character Classics series do to help parents train their children? First, take professionally recorded classical music by such composers as Dvorak, Bach, Elmenreich, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Humperdink, Strauss, Rossini, Schumann, and many more, then add catchy, descriptive lyrics and you have songs that effectively and enjoyably teach character qualities worth learning. The audio CDs are set up in a story format, with a narrator weaving together all of the songs and lessons learned. There are roughly five or six classical music pieces per album and the narrator ties both the version with lyrics and the version without into the story. The books that accompany each CD feature the lyrics to each song on the album and a full-color graphic novel of the title track. Books are a glossy hardcover. Some other helpful resources are the Student Journals. Grade appropriate, the journals give students space to put down their own thoughts about the things they are learning. The journals are guided, so students are walked through the various character traits through writing and drawing prompts. Journals are consumable but are not reproducible. Teacher Guides and Activity Book sets are also graded like the journals. The TG has two pages of lessons for each of the character traits. These lessons include a basic plan for teaching the trait, along with suggested activities in writing, vocabulary, music, art, drama, and reading. The activity resource book is full of reproducible student pages containing a variety of activities: coloring, matching, mazes, find the letters, word circle, dot-to-dots, complete the picture and many more. Pages are perforated for ease of copying and distribution. Also included are the full lyrics to each song and brief bios of each composer whose music is featured. This series does not include any religious instruction. Character training can actually be enjoyable and catchy too!
