VOW PRGOGRAM OVERVIEW
BEGINNING YOUR VOW PROGRAM
Giving the gift of virtues to your family, school, place of worship or community brings joy and
excitement to everyone involved. We hope that the activities and format provided will inspire and
assist you in implementing a program that is fun so that real learning can take place.
It is highly recommended in order for your VOW program to be as successful as possible that you
purchase and read The Family Virtues Guide and/or The Virtues Project Educator’s Guide by Linda
Kavelin Popov. These books aid in understanding the philosophy for implementing the curriculum,
and are referenced in some activities listed on the Lesson Plan Grids in SECTION 2.
You will need the following items in order to implement the VOW program in its entirety. Please
keep in mind that this overview gives instructions on how to do the full VOW program.
However, each teacher can modify their program based on the number of students, amount of
time they have, the space available or how extensively they want to use the curriculum. For
example, only one activity may be chosen for a 30 minute class. You will need to decide what
supplies are necessary for your individual needs and program. (For information on a home-based
VOW program, see page 10) The Lesson Plan Grids in SECTION 2 have been constructed in a way to
provide the greatest flexibility.
To get started, you will need…

SETTING UP THE CLASSROOM
Turn to SECTION 8: Sample VOW Classroom Set Up for an example classroom environment. A few
things to keep in mind when determining how to set up your space are:
1. When possible, provide a variety of work spaces for students. (for example, on the floor,
sitting or standing at tables, on beanbags, etc.) Whether working individually, in groups or on a
particular project, give students the opportunity to choose where they are most comfortable
working. While some students like sitting at a table, others enjoy standing at one while
working on a craft. Many children, younger and older, like to spread materials on the floor and
work. Work mats, rugs and work boards are useful because they help students designate a
space of their own. Students may also be given the opportunity to pair up by joining work
spaces with another.
2. Child-sized tables, chairs and other furniture are ideal and provide a comfortable environment
for students to work. The more the classroom is designed to meet the students needs, the more
they will feel a sense ownership and want to care and be responsible for their space.
3 of 10
3. Place posters, displays, and other wall items at a level suitable for students to view to create a
child-friendly environment.
4. Provide a group area for “circle time” where everyone can begin and end class together, as well
as, do other group related activities. The circle area may be designated with tape or students
can use work mats or rugs to form a circle when they enter the classroom.
5. Bring variety to your classroom, when possible, by creating stations for specific activities. For
example a painting area, a book nook with pillows that has virtue related books, or a general
drawing area with color sheets related to the virtue of the week.
6. Have tables or areas designated for prepared arts and craft materials, finished art work or
drying area, and snack preparation (optional). Introduce these areas to the students and keep
them same throughout the year. This way students always know where to pick up the materials
they need for activities and where to put them when they are done. The more students can do
things for themselves, the more they become self-confident and independent. Also, allowing
for this independence and responsibility provides more opportunities for mistakes, as well as,
successes in practicing virtues. Avoid doing for students what they can do for themselves, but
be ready to help when students ask for it.
7. Place the Courtesy Bell in a specific place in the room where you can get to it easily when the
need arises. When the bell is rung, students immediately “freeze”, become silent, and give
their attention to the teacher. This periodically offers excellent teaching moments when the
students don’t react properly to the bell. For example once all students are frozen and silent,
the teacher can point out that there is room for improvement in response to the bell. The teacher
then instructs the students to continue doing what they were doing and when they hear the bell
again lets all respond courteously and with excellence.
8. Place the Courtesy Chair in an area some distance from the group activity area, but facing the
class. It is a place for students to sit where they can continue to view the class while they
review their behavior and decide which virtue they need in order to rejoin the group.
SETTING CLEAR BOUNDARIES, CREATING VISION STATEMENTS
AND CLASS SLOGANS
Turn to SECTION 7: VOW Statement and Classroom Boundaries for examples of a vision statement,
class slogan and classroom boundaries. They can be predetermined by the teacher and shared with the
class or students can collaborate with teachers to create them. For more information, see The Virtues
Project Educators Guide pgs. 78 & 85 andThe Family Virtues Guide pgs. 31-41.
USING THE VOW MANUAL
The VOW Lesson Plan Grids in SECTION 2 provide a flexible format so teachers can “mix and
match” activities from several categories to fit their specific class needs. Generally, utilizing the entire
Lesson Plan Grid by starting with the Hello Song, doing an activity from each category and then
ending with the Goodbye Song, takes approximately one hour to an hour and a half. Depending on
how much time you want to spend on each activity or how many activities you want to do, you will
need to decide if you want to do the entire program or only a couple of activities.
4 of 10
Hello Song:
It is important to start the class with a “hello” or “greeting” song that is sung at the beginning of every
class. We have provided a reference for a song; (see SECTION 24: Lyrics Greeting and Farewell
Songs) however, teachers may choose one of their own. By starting with the same greeting song each
week you provide a sense of consistency and familiarity at the beginning of the class. Students will
begin to have a sense of what to expect and ritual that helps set the class environment. The Hello Song
is also a great way to gently encourage students to join the circle so that class can begin. Either the
teacher alone or with a few students can begin singing and repeat the song until everyone has come
together.
The Gift Box from God:
Just prior to bringing out the Gift Box from God is an opportunity for the teacher to do one or
more activities before introducing the virtue of the week. The suggestions below are listed on the
Lesson Plan Grids in the Gift Box from God section. Avoid explaining and discussing the following
topics for long periods of time.
1. Introduction or review of a prayer or inspirational quote. For multi-faith classes, the Golden
Rule, prayers or inspirational quotes from various religions may be read by the teacher and
repeated by the students. Teachers may also choose to repeat the same prayer or quote each
week for the purpose of memorization. This exercise provides a perfect opportunity to model
and practice reverence. Whenever possible and in keeping with the preservation of reverence,
it may be helpful to provide objects for words in the prayer or quote. For example, a prayer or
quote may refer to a rose or other object. These objects may be placed in the center of the
circle for students to look at while they listen to and/or repeat the prayer or quote.
2. Introduction or review of the classroom boundaries, consequences, class vision statement or
slogan. It is suggested that you choose one concept or topic to focus on at a time each week
rather than going through lots of information all at once in one sitting. This gives students an
opportunity to absorb the content better (one concept at a time) and gives the teacher an
opportunity to focus more fully on that concept that day in class. For example, you may wish
to focus on the Vision Statement in class one, the slogan in class two, one classroom boundary
each week for the next several weeks and then move on to a different consequence each week
for the next several weeks. Note: You will, however, need to address the purpose and use of
the Courtesy Bell the first day of class and the Courtesy Chair early on in your program. For
more information regarding classroom consequences see Managing Your Classroom.
3. Review students’ successes regarding practicing last week’s virtue. Allow students to share
briefly their experience with practicing the virtue, observing others practicing the virtue or
activities they did from the previous week’s Weekly Virtue Activities Calendar.
When bringing out the Gift Box from God explain briefly that God has given us virtues and the
virtues are what are good about us. They are already inside us, we just need to discover them and learn
how to practice them. Keep your explanation simple and short. Make the connection that the Gift Box
from God each week will reveal a new virtue or “gem within us”. Really make the opening of the box
exciting and anticipatory. Play up the suspense and you will capture the attention of your students.
Make sure to make your Gift Box from God eye-catching and treat it with respect and care so that the
idea of virtues being special is conveyed. You might also choose a different student each week to
assist you in opening the box to make it even more exciting. When introducing the virtue, keep your
5 of 10
remarks brief. You will lose the attention of your students especially if they are very young or are
unfamiliar with the virtue. The VOW program is designed for students to practice and explore the
virtues experientially through hands-on activities. Keep in mind this is intended only as an
introduction and not the lesson itself. The real learning comes from participating in the activities.
After opening the Gift Box from God take out the Virtue Booklet for the virtue of the week.
Introduce the cover of the book and refer to the picture on the front by asking simple questions about
it. A fun thing to do is to show the picture, but not tell your students what the virtue is. See if they can
guess and explain why they chose the virtue they did. After introducing the name of the virtue, read
only the section on what the virtue is and stop there. Then take out the virtue Giftlet and ask the
students how they think that object is related to or shows the virtue. Remember it is not necessary for
the students to have a full understanding of the virtue at this point for you to move on to the activities.
Students have many different learning styles and the idea of the VOW class is to provide activities that
tap into the different ways students make connections to information. Every activity provides an
opportunity for students to make a connection to the virtue in their own way.
Creating Your Lesson Plan:
Now you are ready to get everyone up on their feet or engaged in an activity that reinforces the virtue
or gives students the opportunity to explore and practice the virtue. The Lesson Plan Grids in
SECTION 2 provide you with three options for each category in the areas of Games & Activities,
Storytime, Arts & Crafts, Presentation/Service, and Music and Movement. Please note that you may
vary the number of options or categories you choose based on your class needs.
1. Options – In general, options are numbered according to difficulty level with Option 1 being
the simpler activity, Option 2 being moderate in difficulty and Option 3 the more advanced
level activity. Although Option 1 may be best for the 3-5 age range, Option 2 the 5-7 range and
Option 3 the 7-8 range, you may find that Option 1 is just as challenging and fun for older
students as well. You will need to decide which game/activity is best for your students based
on their experience with the game/activity and age range. Keep in mind that the
games/activities are very versatile and can be played in different variations to meet your
students at their level of challenge. As a rule, most games can be played at a higher level with
more challenge, whereas the higher level games (Option 3) will tend to be more difficult to
simplify.
In addition, you will often find that activities in an Option column will follow a theme and the
Storytime and Arts and Crafts will be theme-related. You may or may not choose to follow the
theme.
2. Games and Activities – The games and activities in this section can serve two purposes, that is,
by doing the activity itself, the students are actually practicing the virtue. By incorporating the
virtue as a theme, the activity is focused on a virtue the teacher needs to present or review with
the class. See SECTION 9: Intro to Games and Activities for a full explanation on how to use
the games. SECTION 10: Games and Activities lists the games alphabetically and explains
how to play each game and identifies the virtues associated with them. SECTION 11: Games
and Activities Indexed by Game and SETION 12: Games and Activities Indexed by virtue are
resources for choosing other games if those identified in the Lesson Plan Grid are not
appropriate for your class or if you want to identify a game for another activity.
6 of 10
3. Storytime – The stories provided are only suggestions. You may want to substitute a story you
already have that relates to the virtue of the week and modify your activities to go with the
story. However, many of the books on the Lesson Plan Grids are available at your local library
or can be purchased at most bookstores or online. Turn to SECTION 13 Book List for a
complete list of books and SECTION 14: Book Index Sorted by Virtue to choose books for your
weekly book nook.
4. Arts and Crafts – A basic supply of various arts and crafts materials is needed for your class
(glue, scissors, paper, crayons and colored pencils, etc.), however, there are many Arts and
Crafts activities that require specific supplies. Make sure to check the materials list for each
Arts and Crafts activity prior to class so that you will have the necessary materials needed for
that activity. Some Arts and Crafts activities will require some preparation, especially if you
are working with very young students who may need you to pre-prep materials. In the Arts and
Crafts section of the Lesson Plan Grids there is a number followed by the name of the arts and
craft project, as well as, a basic list of materials for that particular project. The number in the
grid refers to the number in SECTION 15: Arts and Crafts Activities where you will find a
detailed description of the project. If the project was previously published, the name of the
craft book and the page it appears on are listed. Purchasing those craft books is strongly
advised so that you have access to patterns and a picture of the final project. Keep in mind that
these are suggested crafts that may spark your imagination to create an entirely different or
slightly modified project.
5. Presentation/Service – Each week your class will have the opportunity to present something
they have prepared or made in class or provide a service related to the virtue of the week to
others. It is an ideal opportunity if you have simultaneous classes (adult, youth or other
children’s classes) going on during your VOW class to allow your students to present to others
what they have learned. The presentations and opportunities for service can be as simple or
complex as you like depending on how much time you want to spend on them, however, very
often you will find that your students will enjoy even the simplest of presentations/services and
the need for great amounts of preparation unnecessary. In addition, your class may choose to
do an on-going service project for an organization such as a sponsored book reading fundraiser
or clean-up project. A good way to get the students involved is to provide them with a few (no
more than 3) options and let them decide which service project they would like to do.
6. Music and Movement: Turn to SECTION 24: Lyrics for the lyrics to the songs. Many of these
songs were found and can be heard on http://www.kididdles.com. Additional resources include
Character Classics and The Virtue CD. See SECTION 23: Music and Movement Index for a
complete list of songs, artists and sources. You will notice this section is entitled Music and
Movement. The music is even more effective when musical instruments and/or movement or
dance is used.
Virtue Affirmation
The end of class is a wonderful opportunity to gather everyone together in the circle and go over the
Virtue Affirmation. Have the students sit reverently and repeat small sections of the Virtue
Affirmation after you. Remind them to say their Affirmation several times throughout the week. See
SECTION 5: Virtue Affirmations for a list of all virtue affirmations. These affirmations are also
printed on the back cover of each Virtue Booklet.
7 of 10
Goodbye Song:
The Goodbye Song provides a familiar closure to the class. It may be possible to revise your Hello
Song, depending on the lyrics, to include the word “goodbye” or “farewell” so that the same tune is
used and only the lyrics are changed. In any case, the Hello and Goodbye Song should be simple,
short and sweet! (See SECTION 24: Lyrics Greeting and Farewell Songs)
MANAGING YOUR CLASSROOM
Part of the success of managing your classroom is the amount of time invested in the preparation of
materials and set-up of the environment. Other aspects include the clear boundaries that govern your
class and the implementation of the language of the virtues. All these things will help you to be
prepared for your class and to deal with upsets should they arise. VOW classes are set up and based on
two approaches for class management. One is the Love and Logic approach (please visit
http://www.loveandlogic.com/ ) and the other is The Virtues Project approach (please visit
http://www.virtuesproject.com/index.php). While Love and Logic provides teachers and parents with
practical skills and tools, The Family Virtues Guide and The Educator’s Guide provide the balance of
the spiritual aspects of managing problems in the classroom. A combination of these two approaches
make up the Classroom VOW’s or Boundaries referred to earlier. Both provide opportunities for
mistakes and growth while giving the students the opportunity to choose, modify or change their
behavior in a way that emphasizes the use of virtues.
You will notice that this section of the Teacher’s Manual does not go into detail on either approach.
The reason for this is the Love and Logic books and The Family Virtues Guide and The Educator’s
Guide must be read in order to clearly understand the philosophies. It is highly recommended that you
become very familiar with these two approaches (or another similar type of classroom management
approach) before beginning your VOW program. The curriculum alone is not what makes the VOW
program work. The curriculum without an appropriate classroom management is without support and
function. Even more important than the activities themselves, is the opportunity for teachable
moments that occur in the classroom. Although the activities in each category are designed to create
teachable moments and opportunities for virtue practice, it is the naturally occurring opportunities that
are far more effective and important to not miss. For example, in one of our earlier classes, when the
students were asked to get a carpet square from a stack of carpets in the classroom and bring it to the
circle, a scuffle started over getting to the stack first and getting the color of carpet square desired.
Without stepping in and “fixing” the situation, we rang the Courtesy Bell to get everyone’s attention
and asked the students to go back to where they had come from in the class. Then we asked, “What
would courtesy look when we get our carpet squares? Let’s try it again.”
PREPARING VOW CLASS ITEMS FOR TAKE-HOME
Once your class begins you will find that it goes very quickly because children love to have fun which
is what this program is all about. So, be prepared. Place take home bags in the same area every week.
Be sure to label a bag for each student. (This is a great job for the mentors) Be sure to label bags as
late students arrive. Each bag should contain the Virtue Booklet and giftlet for the week, as well as,
any arts and crafts projects completed that day. Parent information can also be placed in the bags.

MENTORSHIP IN THE CLASSROOM
The VOW curriculum is geared towards students ages 3 to 8 however a mentorship program was
developed for ages 9 to 14 as a companion program. It was originally intended to be a short lived
program until a complete VOW curriculum could be developed for the older ages, but it became
readily apparent that not only were the mentors enjoying themselves, but they were learning about the
virtues, developing leadership qualities and nurturing skills. What better way to develop the next
generation of teachers?!
Critical to the success of the mentorship program, however, is communicating effectively expectations
regarding behavior and interaction with the students. Periodic mentor meetings are very effective.
Some topics that should be discussed are: explaining the role of the mentor (i.e. being a virtue role
model), encouraging students to do their own work, and assisting in the mechanics of classroom
management, etc.
Have mentors brain storm about what their role is and what jobs would be appropriate for them. Role
play how to encourage students to do their own work and not fall into the habit of doing it for them.
Role play problem solving situations with particularly challenging students. This is also a good
opportunity to practice some of the improv games in SECTION 10 and to practice performing Aesop’s
fables in SECTION 18. The mentors will then be able to perform these games and/or fables for the
students.
Some mentor jobs may include: class room set up, setting up arts materials on student trays,
distributing trays, setting up and distributing snacks, encouraging students to assist with clean up,
making sure each student has a “take home bag” labeled with their name and that all their materials are
in the bag, presenting fables and skits, etc.
If you have an over abundance of mentors and as your classroom develops its own flow, you may find
it works best to send the mentors to another area during story time to work on improv games that
demonstrate the virtue of the week at their level or work on developing a skit. Then, they can come
back into the classroom to assist with the arts and crafts project which usually requires more hands.
The idea is to remain flexible. Perhaps rather than read the story at the beginning of the class, you
challenge the mentors to create a skit (with costumes) while the students play their game and complete
their art work. Then the mentors can perform at the end of class.
Children this age, 9 to 14, love to be responsible and help and enjoy having the special honor of a
mentor position. Keep in mind that although the activities in SECTION 2 on the Lesson Plan Grids are
geared for ages 3-8, all are easily adapted to a higher level and can be jut as much fun for the older age
range.
PARENT ETIQUETTE
One of the goals of the VOW program is to help students develop independence and a positive self
image from being able to accomplish things on their own. They are encouraged to do their own work,
solve their own problems and clean up after themselves. Occasionally you may run across a parent or
two who are overly helpful which runs counter to this objective. To avoid potential problems, it is
suggested to set up a “Parent/Visitor Observation Area” which is simply a few chairs set up somewhat
away from the group to discourage too much interaction or interruption from parents who are not there
9 of 10
specifically as assistants. Again it is important to have it in the same place each week and helpful to
have a sign placed above the chairs.
Also, some children have difficulty being separated from their parents and this allows those students to
have peace of mind and focus on the class. After several weeks, parents may find they can leave the
classroom altogether.
SPECIAL FUN DAYS
We’ve talked about being consistent with classroom set up and procedure, however, sometimes it’s
great to have special activity days. Two fun ideas for reviewing the virtues you have been studying
are:
1. Spring Field Day: During Spring Field Day all activities are associated with a virtue. For
example, the limbo (flexibility), water balloon toss (excellence), cheeto toss (self-discipline),
face painting (creativity), cup cake walk (patience), bubble area (joyfulness), sack race
(determination), snack area (moderation), etc. Each area should be set up ahead of time in its
own area with a posted sign that includes the name of the game and the virtue. That way you
can move from activity to activity with little or no confusion.
2. VOW-O-WEEN Day: Students, mentors and teachers should come dressed as their favorite
virtue. Activity ideas include: guess the virtue costume, popping trinket balloons (i.e. balloons
that are inflated but have small trinkets inside), pumpkin bowling, face painting, making
candied apples and/or popcorn balls, autumn crafts like leaf tracings, etc. Snacks should also
relate to virtues such as heart shaped cookies (love), licorice (flexibility), etc.
INVITING GUESTS PERFORMERS/PRESENTERS
Another important aspect of the VOW program is the integration of guest performers/presenters when
possible. For example, musicians playing background music for stories or skits add a whole other
dimension to Storytime. Other examples include: peace officer/police officer (peacefulness), dog
trainer and dogs (purposefulness), fireman (service), marital arts expert (self-discipline). Be sure
ahead of time that the guest is comfortable relating to and working with young students.
HOME BASED VOW PROGRAM
Congratulations for getting this far! You are probably panicking by now. But don’t! You heard about
this fun, easy virtues program you could have in your home for your children and maybe some of their
friends. Now you have a five pound manual with a 10 page introduction that talks about mentors,
bells, parent observation area, t-shirts, passports,… Remember, almost everything described above
relates to the full blown, structured, class being offered to a large group of people. For the home based
VOW program, setting clear boundaries (page 4) is important, as well as, learning classroom
management skills (page 8). Then decide how much time you have and select activities from the
Lesson Plan Grids in SECTION 2 to best make use of that time. Be sure to download the Virtue
Booklets and the weekly Virtues Activities calendars.
GOOD LUCK AND REMEMBER TO BE FLEXIBLE AND HAVE FUN!

Feel free to do anything that doesn't cause a problem for anyone else
If you cause a problem, I will ask you to solve it
If you can't solve the problem, or choose not to, I will do something
What I do, will depend on the special person, and the special situation
If you feel something is unfair, whisper to me, "I'm not sure that's fair," and we will
talk.

VIRTUES PROJECT ACTIVITIES INTRODUCTION
The games and activities in this section can serve two purposes:
1) By doing the activity, the students are actually practicing the virtue itself.
The virtue is used or brought to life simply by following the directions of the
activity. For example, when playing the game Give & Take, the students, in order
to make the game work, must practice Consideration by having regard and respect
for the ideas given by other people in the group. They must practice and
implement many virtues such as Assertiveness, Caring, Confidence, Courage,
Courtesy, Creativity, Flexibility, Generosity, Humility, Justice, Orderliness,
Obedience, Peacefulness, Respect, Responsibility, Unity and Self-Discipline in
order for the activity to be successful. The most prominent virtue the game
promotes is listed first. In parenthesis, several secondary virtues are listed. So for
the game Give & Take, it is suggested that it be played for the virtue
Consideration, however, it is also applicable to any of the secondary virtues listed.
This gives the teacher the flexibility to gear the game to the virtue most needed
for the focus of the class.
2) By incorporating a theme, the activity may be focused on a virtue the teacher
needs to present to the class or review. For example, with Give & Take, even
though the actual playing of the game does not require the virtue of Thankfulness
to be practiced, by using Thankfulness as a theme, all the actions given to the
group can be based on Thankfulness. Perhaps a student initiates the motion of
praying or writing a Thank You note or giving a gift to someone, etc.
It is important to note that sometimes a virtue listed for an activity may not at first seem
to have a connection. In other words, the connection may not “jump out” at you. We
recommend going to the definition of that virtue in the Virtues Project Guides (Family or
Educator’s) and reviewing the virtue’s description. This can help with seeing the
connection and how the virtue may be highlighted in the activity. Once again, using the
game of Give & Take as an example, it may not be as clear how Justice might be the
game’s focus. Let’s look at the definition first.
Justice: Practicing justice is being fair in everything you do. It is seeing with your own
eyes and not judging something or someone by what other people tell you. Being just is
standing up for your rights and the rights of other people. It is taking responsibility if
you make a mistake and making amends. Justice means that every person’s rights are
protected.
Now review the rules of the game Give & Take. In order to be fair, everyone should be
given the opportunity to give an idea to the group. That means “stepping back” on your
ideas and allowing others to share theirs. It also means not judging other people’s
ideas, but accepting them and respecting the rights of everyone, including yourself, to
give ideas to the group. The teacher may also take the opportunity to discuss how the
game went after it has been played by asking questions like, “Was everyone given the
opportunity to share their ideas?”, “Was the game played justly or fairly? If not, how
1 of 2
could we change the way we played to be more just or fair to everyone?” This then gives
the students the opportunity to stand up for themselves (say, in the case that they were
not given the opportunity to give an idea) and to stand up for the rights of others
(maybe defending others who were not given the opportunity for a turn). This way each
player has an opportunity to take responsibility for their mistakes (maybe not being
more assertive in giving their ideas or the opposite, not backing off from their ideas to
allow others a turn) and make amends by voicing to the group how they might change
the way they play the next round.

Games and Activities
Absent-Minded Storyteller
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Helpfulness
Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Courtesy, Creativity, Detachment,
Flexibility, Generosity, Justice, Moderation, Obedience, Reliability, Respect,
Responsibility, Trust, Trustworthiness, Unity
Description: The teacher begins by asking the students to make up a title for a story that has never been
written before. For younger students, ask them what the story should be called or named to help them
understand the word “title”. Note: The title may include a virtue in the title (for example, “The Thankful
Caterpillar”). The teacher then begins the story by saying, “Once upon a time…” and begins making up
a story about a thankful caterpillar or whatever topic the title describes. At anytime, the teacher may
stop and become “forgetful” of what happens next in the story and ask the class to “fill in the blank” or
say what happens next (the more silly the better). The story continues as the storyteller and students
begin to weave a story together that finally ends. When the story is complete, the teacher may ask what
the “moral/lesson” of the story was. For younger students, the more “forgetful” the teacher, the more
the students enjoy being “smarter” than the storyteller.
Variation 1: Several objects or words may be chosen beforehand (before the title is chosen) that must
be incorporated into the story. For younger students who do not read, objects are recommended. The
objects may be chosen by the teacher or students and placed in a bag to be drawn when the storyteller
“forgets” and must make them part of the story when they are taken out of the bag. For older students,
words may be written on an eraser board or placed in a bag to be drawn also. If the story is going to be
based on a theme or virtue, objects or words may be chosen that are related to that theme or virtue.
Variation 2: Another fun aspect to add to this activity is to incorporate sound effects or motions for
particular characters or objects in the story. For example, there may be a “catch phrase” that the
audience says every time a specific character is mentioned or a sound effect or motion that is done every
time a specific object is mentioned.
Variation 3: As the teacher tells the story, at some point a problem arises. Then “fortunately” a way
out of the problem is found, but “unfortunately” another problem comes up. The story continues to
switch back and forth between fortunate and unfortunate events.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)
Idealism, Mercy, Thankfulness
Variation 3
Add a Part
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Creativity
Assertiveness, Confidence, Generosity
Description: An object is established by a student or suggested by the teacher (for example, a car). The
first student proceeds to use or make contact with that object. A choice might be to sit in the driver’s
seat and steer the car. After making contact, the student leaves the space and is seated. Another student
1 of 34
then comes up to try their idea which may be washing the windows. Each student that comes in contact
with the object demonstrates a new idea.
Variation 1: Substitute a setting (for example, library, hospital, place of worship, Thanksgiving table,
standing in line, etc.) in place of an object. Students enter and exit the setting with an activity that might
be done in that setting. Another option is to keep adding a student to the scene until everyone is
involved. No exiting is necessary.
Variation 2: Once an object or setting is chosen, the teacher asks what the parts of the object or setting
might include. As each student makes suggestions, they must then actually be that part and become part
of the set. For example, for a car, a student might suggest a tire and then have to become a tire of the car.
After several students are in place, an additional student enters the “scene” and uses or comes in contact
with each part played by a student. Students should be encouraged to add sound and movement to the
part they play.
Variation 3: An occupation is established by a student or suggested by the teacher (for example,
mechanic). The first student enters the “scene” and begins doing an activity related to that occupation
(for example, changing a tire). Other students join in to assist in the activity related to the occupation
sometimes assisting another player.
Variation 4: Played as a guessing game, the object, setting or occupation is decided but not told to the
“audience” who must guess what the object, setting or occupation is before entering the scene. The
class may be divided into two teams with one team becoming the audience. This can make for an
interesting experience if the initial idea is misinterpreted. If this happens, the teacher can discuss where
and why the misunderstanding took place with the class.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)
Purposefulness, Reliability, Responsibility
Caring, Flexibility, Helpfulness, Purposefulness,
Reliability, Responsibility, Unity

Airport
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Reliability/Responsibility
Caring, Compassion, Confidence, Consideration, Courage, Determination,
Faithfulness, Helpfulness, Kindness, Loyalty, Reliability, Responsibility, Service,
Trust, Trustworthiness, Unity
Description: Use masking tape or chalk to outline a 4 X 12 foot area to be designated as the landing
strip. Objects of various sizes are placed in this area (books, shoes, chalkboard eraser, boxes, etc).
Students form pairs and one is blindfolded and becomes the pilot while the other the “control tower”.
They each stand at opposite ends of the rectangle. To play, the pilot must rely on the tower to guide
them safely through the obstacles. To make a safe landing, the pilot must not touch or knock over any
object or step out of the rectangle. The tower guides the pilot by calling out directions, “Step forward.
Stop! Left foot higher.” etc. The game is over when an obstacle is knocked over or the pilot steps out of
2 of 34
the rectangle. Note: For students who are still learning left and right, have students hold a small
sandpaper square in the right hand and a smooth square in the left. The tower then calls, “Sandpaper
foot forward.” etc.
Beep
Primary Virtue: Unity
Assertiveness, Determination, Excellence, Orderliness, Reliability, Responsibility
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Students form a circle and one person begins by looking to their left or right and saying
“Beep”. The person who has been “beeped” passes the beep to the next person and so on. The beep is
sent around the circle continuously. The object of the game is for the beep to eventually sound more
like one long “beeeeeep” than separate beeps as the pace gets faster.
Variation 1: The word beep may be substituted for another one syllable word or a multi-syllable word
and can be passed in syllables (one syllable at a time) around the circle (for example, U – NI – TY).
This can help familiarize students with a word and its correct pronunciation.
Variation 2: The direction of the word being passed around the circle can change direction at any time.
Variation 3: An action may be substituted for the word beep. Direction may or may not be changed.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)
Flexibility
Variation 2 & 3
A Box Full of Hats
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:

Description: Have a box full of hats with each hat labeled with a different virtue or emotion or
whatever you want the student to portray. Distribute the hats and have each student act out the quality
or character labeled on the hat. Have students switch hats and see how many different ideas can be
created for each hat. In addition to hats, other props or costume pieces may be used.
Bunny, Bunny
Primary Virtue: Generosity
Consideration, Enthusiasm, Joyfulness, Moderation, Purposefulness, Patience
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Standing in a circle, the first player begins as the “main bunny” by holding both hands to
make “bunny ears” on their head. As they wiggle their bunny ears, they say, “bunny, bunny, bunny,
bunny….” repeatedly until they pass the main bunny to another player. To pass the bunny, they remove
their bunny ears (hands), clap them together and point with both hands together to another person who
3 of 34
then puts on their bunny ears and becomes the main bunny. The object is to pass the bunny as quickly
and smoothly as possible.
Variation: Side (left and right) bunnies are added on either side of the main bunny. The person to the
left of the main bunny has a left bunny ear and the person to the right of the main bunny has a right
bunny ear. As soon as the main bunny passes the bunny ears to another player, the left and right bunny
ears are dropped.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)

Flexibility
Assertiveness, Caring, Compassion, Confidence, Consideration, Courtesy,
Creativity, Friendliness, Generosity, Helpfulness, Humility, Orderliness,
Obedience, Patience, Purposefulness, Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, SelfDiscipline, Tact, Tolerance, Unity
Description: A student is chosen to begin a scene where they will be throwing a party. As the student
pantomimes setting up the party room with decorations etc., “guests” enter the party one at a time
through an imaginary door. As each guest enters, they exhibit a strong emotion which everyone already
in the scene must take on and do also. So as each guest enters, the emotion of the scene completely
changes to the emotion of the last guest. Once three to five guests have entered the scene, they begin to
leave the party one at a time beginning with the last person who entered and working back. As each
player leaves, the emotions change in reverse order.
Variation: One emotion is chosen and as each guest enters the party, the emotion increases in intensity
level. For example, if happiness is chosen, the first guest comes in somewhat content, the next happier,
the next even more so, until the final guest comes in to the point of joy.

Charades
Primary Virtue: Purposefulness
Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Determination, Reliability, Respect,
Secondary
Responsibility, Self-Discipline, Steadfastness
Virtues:
Description: One or two students act out an action given to or chosen by them. The audience/class
guesses what the action is. For example, some simple actions might include brushing teeth, folding a
sheet together, canoeing, etc. A theme may be incorporated to guide the actions the students choose.
For example, actions related to kindness. This game is easy for younger students if the actions remain
basic and simple.

Claymation
Primary Virtue: Purposefulness
Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Courtesy, Creativity, Detachment,
Secondary
Determination, Flexibility, Helpfulness, Loyalty, Moderation, Obedience,
Virtues:
Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline, Tolerance, Trust,
Trustworthiness, Unity
Description: One or two students stand before the class to act as action figure dolls that can be moved
into different positions. The teacher or another student “sculpts” them into a position either connected
or as individuals. The “sculptor” may place the player(s) hands, arms, head, legs, fingers, or feet into
different positions. Players may be put into a kneeling, standing or sitting position. Once the sculptor
has finished positioning the students, they remain in position as the teacher asks everyone to take out an
imaginary camera and take a picture of the player(s). The teacher then chooses a student to describe
what was happening when the picture was taken or what is in the picture. For example, they may say
they see two people playing checkers in the park. When the teacher says “Action!” the players come to
life and act out the suggestion. At any time the teacher says “Freeze” and asks the students to take a
picture again since the students should be in a different position at this point. Once again another
suggestion for what is happening in the picture is given and the process continues.
Variation: No “picture” is taken. Immediately after students are put into position, “Action!” is called
and the students performing must work together on the spot to create a scene based on their own idea
and not from suggestions from other students. Note: There is a give and take here where one must
initiate the idea of the scene and the other take the idea and go along with it. When the teacher calls
“Freeze”, a new student, who has volunteered, takes the place of one of the players and assumes that
players position. A new scene begins when “Action!” is called. This may also be played in a tag style
where about five students stand to the side and individually call “Freeze” when they see an opportunity
to jump into the scene taking the place of one of the students. When someone “tags in” they must
assume the exact position of the player they replace. It is always the one who has “tagged in” who starts
the scene and initiates the scene with their idea.

Steadfastness, Unity
Description: Students are grouped in circles of no less than four and no more than seven. Standing in a
tight circle (shoulder to shoulder), not making eye contact and with their hands behind their backs, the
students look at the floor in the center of the circle. Any student may begin the counting by saying “1”;
another says “2” and so forth without going in any order as to who says the next number. The counting
is in sequential order, but who says the numbers is random. No one knows who will say the next
number. When two or more people say the same number at the same time, the group must begin again
and start at “1”. Once a group accomplishes counting to 20, challenge them to start with 20 and count
down. Note: It is important to stress to students that they should avoid creating a pattern as to who says
the numbers. If a pattern occurs, encourage them to break the pattern. Also, there should be no
gesturing of any kind from each other to get others to say a number.
Variation: Counting may be replaced by the alphabet or any other list. Memorized quotes or phrases
are another option. The students must say a quote one – word – at – a – time and finish it without a
word being said at the same time. Lists and quotes can be said backwards also once the group
accomplishes completing the list or quote.
Drawing Objects Game
Primary Virtue: Reliability/Responsibility
Confidence, Creativity, Determination, Loyalty, Purposefulness, Steadfastness,
Secondary

Virtues:
Description: Compile a list of objects with simple but outstanding characteristics (train, cow, tree, etc.)
Divide the class into two teams. Each team sits equal distance from the teacher who has prepared the
list of objects. Each team sends a leader to the teacher, who shows the word of the object or, for
nonreaders, whispers the name of the object or shows a picture of the object. Players run back to their
teams and must draw a picture of the word for their team. The first team to guess and call out the object
wins a point. Drawings can be made on large sheets of paper with crayons or on chalk or dry erase
boards. For older students, more abstract words can be used (for example, a virtue, feeling or
characteristic).
Dress the Part
Primary Virtue: Modesty
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Students are divided into two groups. Each group has a pile of assorted clothes. A
situation is posed such as “What would be appropriate/inappropriate to wear to the beach?” One group
then dresses one of their team mates appropriately and the other team dresses one of their team mates in
appropriately. The in team dressing their mate inappropriately then has to explain why the clothes are in
appropriate. Teams rotate inappropriate and appropriate.
Dress Up Relay Race

Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Unity
Determination, Helpfulness, Orderliness, Purposefulness, Reliability,
Responsibility, Steadfastness
Description: The class is divided into two teams. Each team is then divided in half. Half of a team
stands at one end of the room with a pile of costume or clothing items (for example, hat, pants, shirt,
jacket, gloves, mask, etc.) The other half of the team stands at the opposite side of the room. When the
teacher says “Go!” a team member standing with the clothing group is dressed by the other team
members. Once the player has all the clothes on, they must run to their team members on the other side
of the room who must undress them and then put the clothes on the next team member. Players run back
and forth between the two groups until everyone has been dressed and undressed. The first team to
finish wins.
Variation 1: Instead of dressing, objects may be relayed between the groups. For example, hard boiled
eggs on a spoon, books balanced on a players head or a ball kicked between team members.
Variation 2: An obstacle course may be created for the team members to go through as they make their
way to their team members on the other side of the room. For example, they may jump over pillows,
crawl under chairs, zig zag around cones, etc.

Dubbing: Two players act out a scene while two others of the same sex are chosen to be their voices.
The players who will do the voices are assigned an actor and read lines for their player on stage. The
actors must move their mouths and portray the scene being read. When dubbing works, two players
experience unity and become as one player.
Echo
Primary Virtue: Loyalty
Caring, Consideration, Obedience, Orderliness, Reliability, Responsibility, SelfSecondary

Virtues:
Description: Two large teams stand one behind the other each forming a line. The two lines face each
other as if playing tug of war. The first player in team one calls out a word or phrase. Starting with the
first player in team two across the room, the word or phrase is repeated in turn by each succeeding
player in team two without pause. Each player is to pick up the word or phrase and repeat it more softly
so that the sound finally fades away at the end of the line. The first player in team two then calls out a
word or phrase for team one to echo and the game continues back and forth.

minutes somewhere in the room. The object of the game is to find the egg timer before it goes off. If
students are quiet enough they might even listen for the ticking of the timer. This can be played by
individuals, in teams or by the whole class.
Emotional Chorus
Primary Virtue: Self-Discipline
Assertiveness, Confidence, Compassion, Creativity, Detachment, Moderation,
Secondary
Obedience, Purposefulness, Reliability, Responsibility, Unity
Virtues:
Description: The teacher begins by asking for an emotion (for example, happiness) and for a student to
demonstrate through facial expression what that emotion might look like and sound like (for example,
laughing). That student then stands before the class to represent their emotion in the “chorus”. After
five emotions represented by five students are chosen, they all stand in a line in front of the class to
make up the emotional chorus. Some emotions might include happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear,
etc. The teacher becomes the “conductor” of the chorus and either kneels in front of or stands to the side
of the chorus. The teacher begins by pointing to one chorus member. As long as they are being pointed
to, the chorus member must show and make the sound of that emotion. When the teacher stops pointing
to them, they must immediately stop. Then the teacher points to another member of the chorus, who
then does their emotion. Note: Some ways to vary this activity and have a lot of fun are to point to two
students at a time or raise or lower your hands to make the chorus members louder or softer, make them
stop and start quickly or have all the members do their emotions at the same time.
Variation 1: Instead of emotions, other themes or topics may be used for each chorus member. For
example: actions, sounds, words or phrases, occupations, virtues, etc. Chorus members may be related
in theme or be completely unrelated.
Variation 2: One emotion is chosen and each chorus member expresses varied intensity levels of that
emotion. For example, glum, sad, depressed, grieved.
Experts
Primary
Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Confidence
Assertiveness, Courage, Courtesy, Creativity, Determination, Flexibility,
Helpfulness, Patience, Reliability, Steadfastness
Description: This activity is played in the format of a talk show. The teacher (talk show “host”)
interviews two guest “experts”. The problem is that these “experts” do not know what they are experts
in, which will be decided by the class. Two students chosen to be experts leave the room. The
teacher/host asks the class for a noun (for younger students, they may ask for an animal or an everyday
object). Then the teacher asks for a verb or action (for younger students the verb may be omitted)
8 of 34
unrelated to the noun. The noun and verb are then put together to create what the expertise is. For
example, “elephant jumping” or “car eating”. The noun is always first. Once the expertise if chosen,
the two experts return to the room and the “talk show” begins. The teacher/host of the show introduces
the guests and begins interviewing them by asking clue-like questions about their expertise while being
careful not to use the noun or verb in any form. For example, if the expertise was on elephants, the host
might ask, “How was your trip to our show? I hear you had some problems getting your luggage out of
the trunk of your taxi.” The experts must then “go along” with the questions, make up answers and try
to figure out their expertise beginning with guessing the noun first. Note: The teacher and students
chosen to be the experts must know ahead of time that clues will be given for the noun first until they
say or guess the noun, then the clues for the verb will begin. So an expert may guess that they are
experts on elephants by interjecting, “Well ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved elephants.” Now
the host knows to move on to “jumping”. If one of the experts figures it out, they may reply, “Well, we
have been elephant jumping for a long time now and have studied the sport for many years.” Note:
This is a higher level game and should be based on the level of the class and the teacher’s ability to
improvise and guide the “show”. To incorporate the virtues, the experts might be experts in a particular
virtue (for example, refrigerator obedience or spider trust or cow courtesy. Make it fun and experiment!
Note: Another host may be chosen to co-host with the teacher.
Feet & Legs or Hands Alone
Primary Virtue: Confidence
Assertiveness, Confidence, Creativity, Determination, Flexibility, Purposefulness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: One at a time, each student is to show or communicate, without speech, a “Who”, “What”,
or a mood or virtue (for example, a police officer, penguin, sadness or joyfulness) using only their feet
and legs or hands. To add to the fun of this activity, a curtain or screen may be used for the players to
go behind so that only their feet and legs or hands are visible. This game may also be played in pairs
where two players must communicate a relationship using feet and legs or hands alone.
Fish for Virtues
Primary Virtue: Confidence
Determination, Flexibility, Purposefulness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Cut out fish about 5” long by 3” high and use markers to add scales, eyes, etc. Write
virtues on some and put large paper clips on these. Then write non-virtues like hitting, not sharing, on
others. DO NOT put paper clips on these. Make a “fishing pole” out of a stick and some string. Tie a
medium to large sized magnet on the string. Students then go fishing. When they catch a fish, review
the virtue. When all the good fish are caught, review why the ones still left in the pond were not caught,
that is, they are not virtues. If you choose to, you can put down a blue cloth to represent the pond.
Follow My Lead

Virtues:
Courage

Patience, Purposefulness, Self-Discipline, Steadfastness
9 of 34
Description: The teacher gives a sequence of directions to the students beginning with one action, such
as, “stand up straight”. The students then follow the direction. Then the teacher repeats the direction
and adds another direction, such as, “stand up straight and tap your knees.” Each time the students
follow the directions the teacher adds more and more directions one at a time. If someone forgets a
direction, they sit out to watch the rest of the group. The “winner” is the one left standing who has
remembered to follow the sequence of directions.
Variation: Played in a circle, the teacher begins with an action (for example, clapping three times).
The person to the teacher’s left must then repeat the action (clap three times) and then add one more
action (for example, wiggle their toes). The third person then repeats the two previous actions and adds
a third idea and so on. As the sequence moves around the circle, the more difficult it becomes. If
someone forgets a motion, they sit out to watch the group. The “winner” is the last one standing who
remembers the most of the sequence.
Gibberish
Primary Virtue: Purposefulness
Assertiveness, Confidence, Courage, Creativity, Determination, Flexibility,
Secondary
Purposefulness, Reliability, Self-Discipline, Steadfastness
Virtues:
Description: Gibberish can be incorporated into many role-playing and acting games to get students to
focus more on the meaning of a game rather than thinking of what to say. Gibberish is making sounds
instead of recognizable words and can be used to convey something through physical activity without
focusing on words or explanation. Scenes or conversations can be transformed into gibberish. Also
gibberish is lots of fun and liked by younger and older students alike. Using the Family Virtues Guide or
Educators Guide, refer to the section on “What would (insert virtue here) look like if…” and have the
students act out the scenarios in gibberish. Then have them repeat the scenario in English.
Variation 1: Have the students teach (maybe a virtue) or sell (maybe a product that is virtue-based)
something to the audience with the use of gibberish. This can help the player really focus on the task at
hand.
Variation 2: Try calling out Gibberish! English! During a game to see how the players are flexible with
the use of language and getting their point across.

10 of 34
Description: With everyone standing in a circle, the teacher “gives” a continual physical motion to the
group (example: clapping hands). Everyone in the circle “takes” on that motion and does it too. The
teacher stops and asks who might have a motion they would like to share with the group. The teacher
chooses someone to “give” their idea to the group (example: marching) and everyone must “take” that
idea and do it too. The game continues until everyone in the group has had an opportunity to give an
idea.
Variation 1: Game may be played by theme where ideas given have something to do with a particular
topic (for example, all actions must be related to an animal, kindness or things that start with the letter B,
etc.)
Variation 2: Played silently after students have a mastered basic Give & Take. A student begins or
gives an action to the group. Without speaking, anyone can change the action at any time. The group
must work together as a team to take on the new action without everyone doing something different.
Some people have to back off and allow others a turn and some may need to be more assertive and try
their idea so that a few do not become the only ones to give ideas to the group. Important rule: no
person may initiate ideas twice in a row. This variation may also be done with a theme.
Variation 3: One or more students (no more than three depending on the size of the circle) leave the
room. A leader is chosen from the circle to lead the group through different motions. The student(s) reenters the room and stands in the center of the circle and must choose who it is that is leading the group.
The leader may change motions at any time while trying not to be discovered. Followers in the group
must try not to give away who the leader is by not looking directly at the leader too often or for too long.
Variation 4: Any student begins a movement. Once a student initiates a movement, all others must
hold (no movement). Any child can make a motion at any time but must hold if another player starts a
motion. Students sensing another player moving (giving) are said to be “taking”. For younger students,
begin by having each child do the same movement throughout the entire game. “Hold” is used instead
of “freeze”. “Freeze” is total stoppage, where “hold” is waiting to move as soon as one may do so.
Variation 5: This is Give & Take while reading or singing. Simultaneously reading or singing the
same passage or song silently, all students in a group “give” the opportunity to read or sing aloud to any
player who “takes” it (starts to read or sing aloud). Only one player at a time may read or sing aloud. A
player may take, from another player, the opportunity to read or sing aloud whenever he or she wants.
Skipping words or repeating the last words of the previous reader is not allowed.

says “Ha ha”. The third says “Ha ha ha”. This continues until the end or until someone laughs and then
you have to start over.

Description: Two chairs, placed side by side, represent the driver’s seat and front passenger seat of a
taxi. The teacher enters the driver’s side by pantomiming getting into the car (for example, gets keys,
unlocks and opens door, gets in, closes door, starts car, etc.) The teacher begins to drive and asks if
anyone would like to get into the taxi that has an idea, attribute or action to bring in (for example, an
animal, a sound, etc.). Note: To guide this activity or for younger students, the teacher may have index
cards with pictures or descriptions on them for students to pick from for their ideas. The volunteer then
stands outside the passenger door, waves their hand and yells “Hey, taxi!” Once the car “stops”, the
volunteer/passenger enters the passenger side using pantomime (opening/closing door, etc.). Once they
sit in the passenger seat they must begin doing their idea. The driver must then take on the same idea,
attribute or action also (for example, if the passenger is hungry, the driver becomes hungry). After a
little while, the driver drops off the passenger, who exits the taxi, and another volunteer with a new idea
stands, waves their hand and yells, “Hey, taxi!” After the students get the idea of the game, the teacher
may exit the driver’s side of the taxi and let the passenger scoot over to be the driver. A new passenger
then enters the passenger side of the taxi taking the previous passenger’s seat. Rotation continues with
driver’s exiting and passengers scooting over to drive. Note: A fun thing to do is to designate someone
or have the audience do sound effects for the taxi. They make the sounds for the doors, brakes, etc.
Variation 1: Four chairs are used to represent the front and back seats of a taxi (two in front side-byside, two in back side-by-side). It is played the same as two-seater taxi, only when the two front seats
12 of 34
are full, the next passenger enters from behind the front passenger side and slides over to the far left seat
directly behind the driver. The next passenger enters the taxi and takes the remaining seat directly
behind the front passenger seat. Once the taxi is full, players begin to exit the taxi making room for
more passengers. Players always exit to their left beginning with the driver, then next the passenger
who was behind them. Each time a player exits, passengers scoot over to their left to take the empty
seat beside them. The rotation continues front to back, front to back for as long as the game continues.
Note: Passengers never move from the back to the front seat or vice versa, but always exit to the left of
the car.
Variation 2: Game may be played by theme where ideas brought into the taxi have something to do
with a particular topic (for example, all actions must be related to animals, kindness or things that start
with the letter B, etc.)
Variation 3: May be played with two or four chairs, only instead of taking on the same idea brought
into the taxi, players respond to what is brought in. A virtue may be applied in this case. For example
for the virtue helpfulness, if a person comes in who is hurt, others in the taxi respond in a helpful way to
the situation.

How Do You Do That?
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Determination
Orderliness, Patience, Reliability, Steadfastness
Description: Only two players should be told how the game works. One is sent from the room while
the group decides on an object. That player is then called back in. The other player asks the first to say
whether the selected object is a certain book, the clock, or any other objects. Immediately before
naming the selected object, he or she names something that is black in color. That indicates to the first
player that the next object named is the one the group selected. The other players try to discover how
the trick is done. The game can be repeated, even after the other players understand the basic trick, by
having two partners decide privately what the characteristic of the clue object will be (it could have four
legs, be made of paper, be electrical, or whatever). The nature of the clue object must not change,
although the specific clue object should change, until the group correctly guesses what characteristic
provided the clue. (That is, for example, the clue object may be a chair, a table, or a dog – all of them
four-legged.)

Description: Students form teams of two players (a singer and a talker). The singer begins by singing a
familiar song (“Yankee Doodle”, “Happy Birthday”) over and over while the talker begins to tell the
singer about some topic or event that happened (what they did for fun today or how they learned to ride
a bike, etc). The singer is to focus on singing the song while listening to the talker and what the talker is
saying. Before reversing roles, the singer must tell what they heard. In addition, the game may be
played again with the singer this time being silent and giving full attention to the talker who repeats
what they said so that the singer has the opportunity to hear what they missed.
Hungry Harold
Primary Virtue: Review
All
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Purchase a puppet (name him Harold) with a large mouth that opens and one that you can
manipulate the face for expression. Cut a hole in the mouth. Now make the food. Cut squares of paper
slightly smaller than the hole and write virtues on them. Cut squares of paper slightly larger than the
hole and write non-virtues (backbiting, hitting ..) on them. You can cover them with clear contact paper
or laminate them so they last longer. Be sure the good virtues are still smaller than the hole. Put Harold
on your hand and tie a rope, ribbon or string around the bottom on your arm so the food doesn’t fall out.
Then, put all “food” (good virtues and non-virtues) in a bowl. Ask students to choose one and see if
they think Harold will “eat” it because he only eats good virtues. Have them try and feed Harold. If it is
a good virtue, it will go in his mouth and Harold thanks the student and makes happy faces. If it is bad,
then it won’t go down and Harold spits it out making Yuk faces.

Any Virtue by Theme
Description: Students close their eyes while the teacher or another student communicates a virtue by
knocking on a door or other object. Students may guess or talk about which virtue the knock might
14 of 34
represent or why it sounds the way it does. The teacher should encourage students to demonstrate their
version of the knock for that virtue noting all the different interpretations.
Variation: Each student draws a virtue from a stack of cards and demonstrates how their virtue might
be communicated through knocking, allowing others to guess which virtue they are demonstrating.
Students should be encouraged to discuss the differences in the knocks. The teacher might preface this
activity by asking questions like “How would assertiveness sound in comparison to peacefulness?”
Land of Virtue

Description: Two or more students show what the land of a chosen virtue would be like to visit. For
example, if they were in the Land of Honesty, they might act out breaking something, then telling the
person whom it belonged to or point out to a cashier that too much change was given, etc.
Variation: Two or more students on a team are given a particular “virtue land” that they are on their
way to (for example, the Land of Joyfulness or Confidence). Each team, in its own way, is to
communicate what land they are going to physically. For example, the group going to the Land of
Confidence Land might walk with their heads held high and saying “We can do this!”, where the team
going to the Land of Joyfulness might be skipping, laughing and singing on the way. The destinations
may be shared with the entire group or left for the audience to guess.

Virtues:
Reliability/Responsibility
Assertiveness, Confidence, Creativity, Determination, Flexibility, Obedience,
Purposefulness
Description: Students stand in a circle surrounding the teacher (pointer) who stands in the middle of
the circle. The pointer points to any student in the circle and says a letter. The person who has been
pointed to must immediately (off the top of their head) come up with a word that starts with that letter:
For example, if the pointer says “B”, the person may respond saying “bubble”. The pointer then
randomly points to another student and says a different letter (randomly from the alphabet) and the
student has to come up with a word for that letter. Note: For younger students, the letter given may be
followed by its sound. Encourage the student to repeat the sound as this helps them to connect it with a
word. Letters and who is pointed to should always be random. Letters may be repeated; however,
words may not be repeated. Once a word has been used, it may not be used again. If a student is
pointed to and is unable to come up with a word, they are not allowed to pass, however, the pointer may
say, “Keep thinking and I’ll come back to you.” if the student really does get “stuck” and cannot come
up with a word.
15 of 34
Variation: A theme is decided beforehand and when the pointer gives a letter to someone, their word
must begin with that letter and be related to the theme. For example, if the theme is hospital, for “N”
they might say nurse, “E” emergency, “L” lights, etc.

Virtues:
Self-Discipline, Service, Unity
Description: A student is chosen to be the first part of an imaginary “machine”. That student goes in
front of the class and begins moving like a machine part by doing any machine-like repetitive movement
with a part of their body or whole body. When ready, another student, who sees how they could be the
next part of the machine, joins the first student and adds the next part of the machine. Note: Teachers
may encourage students to come up with a sound for their part or the activity may be done in silence.
The machine continues to build as students join in and play their part. The machine is complete when
there are no more students to join in. The object is to build on the idea of the previous student.
Make Me Laugh
Primary
Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Self-Discipline
Assertiveness, Confidence, Courage, Creativity, Detachment, Determination,
Obedience, Purposefulness, Reliability, Responsibility, Steadfastness
Description: A student volunteer is seated in a chair before the class/audience. The object of the game
is for the seated student to try to keep from laughing while other students one at a time approach them
and try to make them laugh without touching them. The person who keeps a straight face the longest in
the chair (no smiling allowed may be a rule) is the “winner”.
Mirror
Primary Virtue: Generosity
Assertiveness, Consideration, Courtesy, Determination, Excellence, Flexibility,
Secondary
Humility, Obedience, Patience, Peacefulness, Purposefulness, Reliability,
Virtues:
Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline, Tolerance, Unity
Description: Students are paired off with their partner facing them. One is designated Mirror A the
other B. Mirror A begins very slow movements which Mirror B must “mirror” and do simultaneously
becoming a reflection of Mirror A in movement and expression. After some time, the teacher says
“Change!” and Mirror B initiates the movements while Mirror A follows and reflects.
Variation 1: Students are allowed to switch the leader back and forth on their own without speaking
while allowing each a little time before switching.
Variation 2: One pair may be chosen to Mirror before the class after having secretly chosen who will
lead. The object is for the observers to guess who the leader is.
16 of 34
Variation 3: Instead of mirroring an action, students mirror speech. One student begins talking about a
topic or saying a memorized quote slowly while the other student mirrors the words as exactly as
possible. “Change!” may be called and the conversation or quote switches to the other student who now
leads. Changeovers should be made smoothly without any breaks if possible. Eventually teams may
make the changes on their own without it being called for them.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)
Justice, Moderation:
Variation 1
Modest or Immodest – You Decide
Primary Virtue: Modesty
Excellence, Purposefulness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Place a modest and immodest versions of the same items in the middle of the floor, for
example, a modest home and a mansion, a modest hot wheels car and a flamboyant hot wheels car, a
picture of a person modestly dressed and one immodestly dressed. Have two boxes on either side of the
class room. One labeled “Modest” the other labeled “Immodest”. One by one the students are asked to
find the two similar items and put them in the correct box based on their appearance. They may be
expected to explain their decision prior to placing them in the boxes.
Morph
Primary Virtue: Creativity
Assertiveness, Confidence, Courage, Courtesy, Determination, Flexibility,
Secondary
Humility, Purposefulness
Virtues:
Description: The teacher pre-selects several miscellaneous objects (for example, a basket, book, large
spoon, anything). With students sitting in a circle, the teacher places one object in the center and asks
what the object is and what it is normally used for. Students are then encouraged to imagine what else
the object might become by using their creativity. A volunteer is chosen to demonstrate using the object
for something other than what it was originally intended without using words, talking or explanation.
Other students then guess what the object has become or what it is being used for. After three guesses
by three different students, if the idea is not guessed, the answer is given. Note: Teachers should
encourage students to look at the object from different points of view. What if the object were to be
turned upside down or on its side? Also, it is important with younger students that they are told they
must already have an idea before they come to the center of the circle.
Variation 1: Played with only a few students (5 -7) who have an object placed before their group.
Players take turns coming up with ideas for the object and may step forward to use the object at any
time. There is no sequence when it is someone’s turn. The students may be rotated from the class.
Variation 2: Played “blind”. Students cover their eyes or turn their backs so that they cannot see the
object ahead of time. Once the object is placed, the students are told to turn around and come up with an
idea as immediately as possible. This increases the improvisational aspect of the game, giving the
students less time to think about the object and to play more “on the spot”.
17 of 34
Variation 3: Played with a theme where the object must be used in a way that is related to dinosaurs or
a particular virtue. For example, for the virtue self-discipline, there may be homework, a violin, a bag of
cookies, a favorite toy, a TV, etc. (Toy objects may be used in place of life-sized objects, as in the case
of a TV.) Students then choose an object and demonstrate what that virtue would look like using that
object. For the TV, a student might pretend to watch it and then say, “I better get my homework done
now.” turning the TV off.
Mother/Father May I?
Primary Virtue: Courtesy
Determination, Mercy, Obedience, Patience, Reliability, Respect, Tolerance
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Students stand in a line across the room from the teacher or other person who plays the
“Mother/Father”. The “Mother/Father” chooses a student and gives them directions to follow (for
example, “Billy, take 3 steps forward.”) The student who has been given directions must ask,
“Mother/Father may I?” before they are allowed to move. The “Mother/Father” then responds with,
“Yes, you may.” only if they ask permission. If the student moves without asking permission, they must
go back to the beginning where they started across the room. The directions given can include things
like hops, jumps, baby steps, giant steps, scissor steps, etc. The object of the game is to reach the
“Mother/Father” first.
Name Six
Primary Virtue: Excellence
Assertiveness, Confidence, Courage, Determination, Faithfulness,
Secondary
Purposefulness, Responsibility, Steadfastness
Virtues:
Description: Students sit in a circle and one is chosen to be the pointer in the center of the circle who
closes their eyes while the others pass any small object from one to the other. When the center player
claps hands, the player who is caught with the object in hand must keep it until the center player points
at him or her and names a virtue. Then the player with the object must begin to pass the object on its
way around the circle so that it passes through the hands of each player in turn. By the time it returns,
the player must have named six things related to that virtue. If the player does not succeed in the time it
takes for the object to make the round of the circle, that player must change places with the one in the
center. If the circle is small, the object should be passed around two or more times. For example, for
courtesy, the person might say kindness, holding a door, shaking hands, etc. If six is too many to name,
the number of ideas named may be lessened.
Pass It On
Primary Virtue: Assertiveness
Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Flexibility, Generosity, Justice,
Secondary
Obedience, Orderliness
Virtues:
Description: Students stand in a circle. The teacher initiates an action (for example, a clap) and passes
it to the person to the left or right. Then the action is passed on to the next person and so on until it
comes back to the teacher who repeats the idea. The next person begins a new action and passes it
18 of 34
around the circle and so on until everyone has an opportunity to share an idea. This may be played by
theme also (for example, all actions may be related to baseball, food, a virtue, etc.).
Pass the Dough
Primary Virtue: Assertiveness
Confidence, Creativity, Flexibility, Purposefulness, Responsibility
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: The students and teacher form a circle. The teacher begins by holding an imaginary ball
of dough, shaping it into an object and then using it for a particular purpose. For example, if the teacher
pantomimes shaping the dough into a cup, the teacher may take a sip from it. After demonstrating its
use, the teacher forms it into a ball again and passes it to the next person in the circle who takes the
imaginary dough, creates a new object, demonstrates its’ use, forms it into a ball again and passes it on.
Variation: Instead of forming the dough into a ball before passing it on, for example, the teacher hands
the cup to the next person who must use the cup in a different way (for example, washes it or pours
something into it). After using the object for another purpose, then the student forms the object into a
ball, reshapes it into another object, demonstrates its use and then passes it on to the next person who
must take that idea and use it in another way.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)

Patience, Patience, Determination
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Patience
Confidence, Determination, Excellence, Purposefulness, Steadfastness, Tolerance
Description: This is Duck, Duck, Goose only with the words replaced with “Patience, Patience,
Determination!” Students sit in a circle with one student chosen to walk around the outside of the circle
lightly tapping the head of each seated player while saying the word “Patience” with each tap. When the
outside player taps a seated player on the head and says “Determination”, that seated player then chases
the tapper around the outside of the circle back to their original seat. If the chaser tags the tapper before
they make it to the empty seat, then the tapper continues to be the tapper and the seated player returns to
their seat. If the chaser does not tag the tapper and the tapper takes the empty seat, the chaser becomes
the tapper and repeats the process of the game.

Playwright
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Obedience
Confidence, Consideration, Courage, Creativity, Flexibility, Generosity,
Helpfulness, Obedience, Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Tolerance
Description: The teacher asks the students to come up with an original title for a play that has never
been written before. After a title has been established, the teacher asks the students what characters
might be in the play and what might be happening in a scene from the play. For example, if the title is
“The Horse that Loved to Eat Pizza”, they might say that the play begins with a horse calling for a pizza
delivery. Volunteers are chosen to represent the characters in the play. Note: For younger students, the
teacher might even ask who would want to be the pizza or the sofa the horse sits on or the phone. When
the teacher says, “Action!” the students improvise the scene. At any time the teacher may say, “Freeze!”
and the students must freeze in mid-action. Then the teacher asks, “What do you think happens next?”
or “What is the horse about to say?” or “Who is about to knock on the door?” or some other question to
get the students to give input as to what happens next. As new characters or events are added, the play
continues based on the suggestions of the audience. To utilize the virtues, the title may contain a virtue
(for example, “The Determined Baker from New York”). Note: For younger students, instead of an
entire scene or play, one or two students may be chosen to act out an event (for example, making pizza
or doing something virtue-related like being determined to ride a bicycle). Simplifying it to a few
people or one action and then building on it can make it easier for younger students.
Problem Solving
Primary Virtue: Helpfulness
Assertiveness, Caring, Compassion, Consideration, Kindness
Secondary
Virtues:
A student is given a problem to act out. For example, they have skinned their knee. The teacher asks
what might be done to help this person solve their problem. With each suggestion, the students are
given the opportunity to come up and try their way of solving the problem. Students then get to see that
there can be many ways the same problem can be solved.
Professor
Primary Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Flexibility
Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Detachment, Determination,
Helpfulness, Humility, Loyalty, Obedience, Orderliness, Purposefulness,
Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Steadfastness, Tolerance, Trust,
Trustworthiness, Unity
Description: Four students stand in a line in front of the class and together become “The Professor”.
The Professor knows all, is always right and can answer any question in the world because the Professor
is improvised. The teacher “fields” questions from the class to ask the Professor, requiring questions to
begin with who, what, why, when, and where to avoid yes or no answers (for example, “Why is the sky
blue?”). The teacher addresses the professor and asks, “Professor, why is the sky blue?”. The Professor
then proceeds to answer one – word – at – a – time beginning with the first person in line going from left
to right from the audience’s point of view. The Professor must answer in complete sentences (i.e. “The
sky is blue because….”) and not starting with “because” or making incomplete sentences. The object of
the game is to work together as a team to answer the question in a complete sentence while going with
20 of 34
whatever the person next to you has said. Note: The challenge of the game is to think off the top of your
head, not to get a “real” or “correct” answer. The group must be flexible and go with whatever they are
given and the Professor is always right no matter what the answer turns out to be.
Variation 1: Once the game has been played several times for fun, real questions and answers may be
required to review a topic or subject that has already been studied. For example, the teacher may ask for
questions that focus on a particular virtue like “How can kindness be shown when someone is hurt?” or
“What does generosity look like when you have a box of your favorite cookies?” etc.
Variation 2: Dueling Professors requires two Professors to ask each other questions. Professor A asks
Professor B a question. Professor B answers, and then follows the answer with a question to Professor
A and so forth. Questions and answers may be improvised or require real questions and answers for
review.
Variation 3: The Professor may be played as someone other than the “Professor” and may take on a
different point of view based on character. For example the Professor may become “The Firefighter” or
“Professor Courtesy”. All answers must reflect that character or trait and be from that point of view.

Obedience, Purposefulness, Responsibility
Description: Any number of students may play this activity. Either a person playing an instrument
(for example, a keyboard, drum, flute or guitar) or recorded music is required as the playing of music, to
set the mood, rhythm, etc. Students walk at random around the room. At intervals during the walk,
activities of one sort or another are called out to players who move from the walk into the activity. Some
activities that might be called out are shaking hands with another student, putting a band-aid on
someone, helping someone with homework, giving food to the poor, sweeping the kitchen, etc. The
activities may or may not be related to a particular theme. The end of the walk comes by a slowing
down of the music and the walk coming to a standstill.
Seven Up
Primary Virtue: Honesty
Detachment, Purposefulness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Seven students (or you can choose less if you have a small class) are chosen to be “up”
and stand in the front of the room. All other students lean over and put their arms on the floor and rest
their heads on their arms. They should not be able to see. They then put one thumb up in the air. The
seven up students then quietly walk around and each chooses one student to put their thumb down.
Then they go back to the front of the room. The students whose thumbs were put down then guess who
put their thumb down. If they are right, that student and the one who put their thumb down switch
places.
Showing Through Use of an Object
Primary Virtue: Assertiveness
Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Flexibility, Purposefulness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Place in each corner of the room a double-sided picture of a particular object, (on one side
a “before” picture, on the other, an “after” picture). Each picture is placed on a stand so that it can be
turned around. In the center of the room, several objects used to affect the four main objects are placed.
For example, the four main objects might be a flower in a flower pot, a puppy, a room and a person. In
the center of the room, there might be a small broom and dustpan, band-aid, toothbrush, watering can,
etc. Students are encouraged to match and use the objects in the center of the room for as many of the
four main objects as possible. Note: Another option is to use students to represent and be the four main
objects. Once the center objects have been used for the main objects, the picture of the main object is
turned to its “after” side to show how the center objects affected it. The choice of theme or virtue will
affect what the four main objects are that are chosen by the teacher. This activity will take some
preparation and creativity on the part of the teacher to make the connections between the chosen topic
and the objects.
Single File

Primary Virtue: Orderliness
Determination, Excellence, Helpfulness, Responsibility, Steadfastness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Five or more students are chosen to leave the room. They return one behind another in a
line and then leave again quickly. All other students watch closely. Students return a second time out of
formation. Audience students then rearrange the line of students, putting them back in their original
order. When students agree that they have the line of students back in their original order, the students
in line make any necessary corrections. Depending on the age of the students, the line of students may
either enter and exit very quickly or give a little more time for younger students to observe the order.
Sit, Stand, Kneel
Primary Virtue: Flexibility
Assertiveness, Consideration, Courtesy, Determination, Flexibility, Obedience,
Secondary
Orderliness, Responsibility, Unity
Virtues:
Description: Three students are chosen to be the players. To start, one player is seated, the other
standing, the other kneeling. When the teacher calls “Start!”, players may begin to change from their
initial position into one of the other positions. Whenever a player changes their position, others must
adjust so that one is sitting, standing and kneeling at all times. For example, if two end up standing at
the same time and one is kneeling, one of the standing players must assume the sitting position. Note:
The faster the changing of positions, the more challenging and fun.
Variation: A scene suggestion is incorporated and the players must justify their positions based on
what is going on in the scene.

Description: Students must convey or communicate a topic (or virtue) to the audience by vocal sound
alone. Use of a microphone may be used. Have the students record their chorus of sounds and play it
back to them.
Variation: Students create sound effects with the use of objects to convey or communicate a topic (or
virtue). If desired, the teacher may have sound effect objects pre-selected. For example, for
peacefulness, to make the sound of a stream, have a straw in a glass of water ready or for joy, a “Tickle
Me Elmo”. Recordings may be made and played back.

scene. If possible, have the entire class/audience do the sound effects for the scene together as they
observe the action.
Spellmaster
Primary Virtue: Creativity
Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Detachment,
Secondary
Determination, Flexibility, Helpfulness, Humility, Loyalty, Obedience,
Virtues:
Orderliness, Purposefulness, Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Steadfastness,
Tolerance, Trust, Trustworthiness, Unity
Description: Four students stand in a line in front of the class and together become “The Spellmaster”.
The Spellmaster can spell any word in the world and is always right because the Spellmaster is
improvised. The teacher “fields” words from the class for the Spellmaster to spell, however, the words
must be made up gibberish words that have never been heard before (for example, gobishnini). The
teacher then says, “Spellmaster, please spell the word _______.” The Spellmaster responds in a spelling
bee style one – person – at – a – time beginning with the first person in line going from left to right from
the audience’s point of view and repeating the sequence beginning back with the first person again. The
first person repeats the made up word, the second person says the first letter of the word and each person
continues to spell the word going through the sequence until they feel it is complete. At any time
someone may repeat the word to designate that it is finished being spelled. The teacher then asks the
Spellmaster to define or say what the word means. The Spellmaster responds by saying, “______
means…” or “_______ is….” Note: Make sure to tell students that foreign words from other languages
are not allowed and that the words must be made up on the spot and never created or heard before. The
object of the game is to work together as a team to spell the word while going with whatever the person
next to you has said. Note: The challenge of the game is to think off the top of your head, not to get a
“real” or “correct” spelling. The group must be flexible and go with whatever they are given
understanding they will always be right no matter what the spelling turns out to be. The definition is
also always right; however definitions should be in complete sentences.
Stage Picture
Primary
Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Courtesy
Caring, Consideration, Determination, Flexibility, Humility, Justice,
Purposefulness, Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline,
Steadfastness, Unity
Description: Depending on the size of the class, this activity may be done by splitting the class in half,
with half as the players and half as the audience or by choosing several students to be the players “on
24 of 34
stage” while the rest of the class is the audience. The players walk freely around the room and around
each other in the designated play area. When the teacher calls “Stage Picture!” players must instantly
hold. The teacher asks if some part of each and every individual in the play area is not visible to the
audience. If so, the teacher says “Go!”, the students begin moving again and the teacher continues to
call “Stage Picture!” until the students do whatever is needed to make each individual totally visible by
the audience.
Stand Up Comedy
Primary Virtue: Joyfulness
Consideration, Courage, Creativity, Respect

Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Detachment,
Determination, Helpfulness, Loyalty, Obedience, Purposefulness, Reliability,
Respect, Responsibility, Steadfastness, Tolerance, Trust, Trustworthiness, Unity
Description: Five storytellers are chosen to stand in a line before the class. The teacher becomes the
story “pointer” and asks the class to come up with an original title for a story that has never been written
or told before. The teacher kneels in front of the storytellers and randomly points to one of them. That
storyteller begins telling the story and continues to talk as long as the teacher points to them. At any
time, the pointer may point to another storyteller. As soon as the pointer stops pointing at a particular
storyteller, they must stop talking even if it is in the middle of a thought, word or sentence. The new
storyteller who is pointed to must continue the story exactly where the last person left off. Note: The
teacher must make the person correct themselves if they do not complete the last word or do not
continue the sentence by repeating what the last person said to assist them. The story is ended by the
teacher (not the storytellers) at anytime. As the students master the game, it may be played for speed to
challenge the storytellers by pointing back and forth between players more quickly.
Variation 1: Storytellers may be assigned words or phrases (either to individuals or as a group) that
they must incorporate at some point in the story.
Variation 2: Storytellers may be assigned an attribute (either as individuals or as a group) that they
must take on for the entire story. Some examples might be an emotion, occupation, virtue, noun, title of
a book, movie star, etc. The attribute they are given will affect the point of view from which they tell
the story, but they must still maintain the integrity and continuity of the story. Each may use props or
costume pieces to use or wear as they tell their part of the story. This variation is generally for older
students or for those with experience with the game. For younger students, simple emotions or animals
are a more basic choice.
Variation 3: Students form a circle and tell a story one – word – at – a – time. Each person adds a
word to the story as it goes around the circle. This is a good warm-up game and a more basic game for
younger students.

Secondary
Kindness, Moderation, Obedience, Patience, Peacefulness, Respect, SelfVirtues:
Discipline
Description: Students are grouped into teams of four then subdivided into teams of two. Each subteam
sits in chairs at tables and begins to have a conversation about a chosen or given topic. While each table
continues separate conversations, both must be aware of the other table. The teacher then calls out
Table 1! or Table 2! Both tables begin simultaneous conversation. When a table is called, that table
must talk more quietly and lower its conversation to allow for the other to “stand-out”. The object is not
for the table conversation to freeze while the other takes focus, but for the tables to give and take. For
older students or when the game is fully understood, the teacher may discontinue calling tables and have
the tables give and take by themselves.
Take Me to Your Leader
Primary Virtue: Friendliness
Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Courage, Courtesy, Creativity,
Secondary
Flexibility, Kindness, Respect, Tact, Tolerance
Virtues:
Description: This activity is played in a talk show format. The teacher is the host/interviewer of the
show. Note: A co-host may be chosen from the students to work with the teacher in asking questions.
Two students are chosen to be aliens from another planet that do not speak any language known to man.
They speak gibberish, a language which they make up on the spot (tell students they may not use any
real language). The aliens may use a few props or costume pieces to really look the part. The host
introduces the aliens to the show and has them seated before the class or “audience”. The host
encourages the class to come up with questions that require more than a “yes” or “no” answer (who,
what, why, where, when?) to ask the aliens. Questions might be about their culture, food, recreation,
anything about them or their planet. Because the aliens do not speak our language, the host must ask the
aliens the questions from the audience in their language and “interpret” the questions to the aliens. The
aliens then in turn answer in gibberish and the host then “translates” the answer to the audience. Of
course the answers are made up or improvised on the spot which makes the interview comical. The
teacher and co-host may continue to interpret questions and answers for as long as they like. Note: The
“aliens” should be encouraged to act out and express through gestures what they are saying in gibberish.
This helps the hosts/interpreters come up with creative, funny answers based on their gestures.
Variation 1: Give the aliens a particular occupation or interest. For example, they are firefighters from
another planet or other occupation related to a virtue.
Variation 2: Instead of aliens, the guests may be actual historical figures, characters from a book or
have a particular occupation or interest. The gibberish may be used or dropped, but the idea is to come
up with real interview questions and answers to review what has been learned about these figures or
characters. This game may also be used to see how much students already know about a particular
person or occupation before introducing it.

Secondary
Responsibility, Steadfastness
Virtues:
Description: Students either choose or are given a person to pretend to have a conversation with on the
phone. Students pretend a phone rings and proceed to have a conversation without giving away to the
audience who they are speaking to. For example, they may have a conversation with a person who has a
particular occupation or relation to them. The teacher may choose a theme that relates all the phone
calls made by the class. For example, people who have jobs of service like firefighters, veterinarians,
teachers, etc. The audience must try to guess who each student is speaking with. If desired, a prop
phone may be provided and students may do the ringing sound effect for the phone.
Three Changes

Secondary
Virtues:
Determination
Orderliness, Patience, Steadfastness, Tolerance
Description: Students are paired off and asked to stand facing their partner. They are to look closely at
their partner and notice everything about them (their hair, clothes, jewelry, etc). The two are told to turn
their backs on their partner and make three changes in the way they look. For example, they may tuck in
a necklace, change their hair, or untie a shoe. They are then asked to turn back to facing their partner
and take turns guessing what was changed. For older children, you can increase the number of changes
each time.
Three Scenes

Description: Three students/players are seated; player A in the center; the others (B and C) on either
side of player A. Each end player chooses a topic and begins talking with the center player as if the
27 of 34
other player was not there. The center player must converse with both sides (two separate topics)
without leaving out the other. End players talk to the center player only. Players rotate positions until
each has had an opportunity to play the center.
Variation 1: Players B and C (the side players) continually praise the center player (player A) and the
center player must respond.
Variation 2: Players B and C (the side players) have complaints or problems they express to the center
player.

When the teacher calls “Switch!” the pairs exchange blindfolds and repeat the activity.
Variation: One student from the class is blindfolded and placed in the center of the room. All other
students spread out to different areas of the room ready to help guide the blindfolded student who begins
walking around the room. The seeing students assist the blindfolded student whenever necessary to help
them walk safely around the room while staying in their area, but moving in to help the blindfolded
student when necessary.

Description: Four students are chosen to be in a suggested scene or situation (for example, buying
groceries or fixing a broken object). The four are paired off and each pair stands side by side with one
arm around their partner. They are now not two people, but two acting as one. Whenever a “twin”
speaks they do so one – word – at – a – time back and forth with their twin. When they move or walk,
they do so together never disconnecting from their partner.

VCR
Primary
Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Obedience
Excellence, Flexibility, Orderliness, Reliability, Responsibility, Self-Discipline
Description: The teacher chooses a simple task for the students to perform. For example, it may be
walking across the room to a chair and sitting down or pantomiming feeding the dog. Using an
imaginary remote control or a remote control from home, the teacher says “play” and the students begin
the task or activity at a normal speed. As the teacher calls out different control buttons, the students
respond. For example, for “rewind”, students perform their task backwards from the point where
“rewind” was called. Students are encouraged to remember as exactly as possible each step of their
action in order to repeat it as accurately as possible. Some other buttons on the remote may include “fast
forward”, “pause” and stop. To get really creative, there may be made up buttons like, “tracking
problems”, “the Animal Channel”, “the laughing channel” or “eject” where students might jump up and
fall to the ground pretending to be an ejected tape.
Variation: Instead of a simple task or action, a scene from a movie or story might be done and
volunteers are chosen to play the characters (for example, a well known story like “The Three Little
Bears” or a popular movie scene).

Verb Rhyme
Primary
Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Flexibility
Assertiveness, Consideration, Creativity, Determination, Flexibility, Helpfulness,
Patience, Purposefulness, Reliability, Responsibility, Steadfastness, Tact, Unity
Description: The students are divided into two teams, one of which goes out of the room while the
other chooses a verb to be acted out. The outside group is called back and given a word which rhymes
with the chosen verb. After consulting among themselves, the members of the group that was sent out
act out a verb they think is correct. If it is correct, the other group claps. If it is not, they shake their
heads. The guessing group continues to act out verbs until the correct one is discovered. Then the
process is played out again for the other team. This may also be played by sending only one player out
and the rest of the group decides on a verb. The verb may be related to a particular virtue. For example,
for “helpfulness” the word “kneel” may be given to rhyme with “heal”. For cleanliness, the word
“bake” may be given to rhyme with “rake” for cleanliness.

Description: Students play the card game “Virtue Game”; see game for rules.
Virtue Singing Syllables
Primary Virtue: Determination
Confidence, Orderliness, Patience, Purposefulness, Steadfastness, Tolerance,
Secondary
Unity
Virtues:
Description: Students sit in a circle. One or more volunteers leave the room while the others decide on
a word or virtue that has at least three syllables, for example “Joyfulness”. The syllables of the word are
distributed around the circle – “Joy” is given to the first group, “ful” to the second, and “ness” to the
third so that all groups have an assigned syllable. To an assigned familiar tune (such as “Yankee
Doodle” or “Happy Birthday”) players sing their group’s syllable over and over. The volunteer who left
the room returns and walks about from group to group and tries to put the word together, using as many
guesses as needed. To make the game more difficult, syllable groups are dispersed throughout the room.
All groups sing their syllables to the same tune simultaneously.
What Are You Doing?
Primary Virtue: Flexibility
Assertiveness, Confidence, Consideration, Creativity, Obedience, Orderliness,
Secondary
Purposefulness, Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline
Virtues:
30 of 34
Description: With two players, one player begins a simple action (for example, driving a car) and
continues to repeat the action until they are given another action to do. The other player asks, “What are
you doing?” The player driving the car must then respond by saying an action that does NOT look like
what they are doing. They might say “Doing jumping jacks.” Now the player who asked “What are you
doing?” starts doing jumping jacks. The player who is driving the car then asks the player who is doing
jumping jacks what they are doing. That player must say an action that does NOT look like what they
are doing. The players continue to ask each other back and forth what they are doing and each player
must respond with an action that does not resemble or is even similar to the action they are doing. For
very young students, cards with pictures of actions may be drawn each time they have to come up with
an action for their partner to do. For older students who are not quite ready to come up with actions on
their own, but do not need cards, action words written on a chalk or eraser board (no more than 10) may
be used to play the game. For younger students, actions may be re-used or repeated. Older students
may not repeat an action that has already been said.
What Do I Do for a Living?
Primary Virtue: Any Virtue by Theme
Any Virtue by Theme
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Depending on the age of the group, either the teacher can have several occupations on
cards for the students to choose from or have the students decide. Each player chooses an occupation
related to a virtue and must portray it to the group without verbal communication.
When I Go to California
Primary Virtue: Orderliness
Assertiveness, Compassion, Confidence, Courage, Creativity, Detachment,
Secondary
Excellence, Patience, Purposefulness, Responsibility, Self-Discipline,
Virtues:
Steadfastness
Description: Sitting in a circle, the teacher begins by saying, “When I go to California, I’m going to
take… a suitcase (or any other object).” The student to the left of the teacher repeats this phrase and
adds a new object to take. For example, “When I go to California, I’m going to take a suitcase and a hat
(or any other object they would like to add).” The game continues around the circle with each student
adding to the previous phrase a new object to take. If a player makes a mistake by either forgetting an
object or saying it in the incorrect order, they must go to the end of the line/circle.
Who Am I?
Primary Virtue: Determination
Confidence, Flexibility, Helpfulness, Patience, Purposefulness, Reliability,
Secondary
Responsibility, Steadfastness, Unity
Virtues:
31 of 34
Description: A student volunteer leaves the room while the group decides who that person will be
when they return. For example, a firefighter, doctor, artist, or teacher – ideally someone who is usually
surrounded by much activity or an occupation that comes in contact with many people. The volunteer
returns to the room and sits in the middle of the room, while others, one at a time or in small groups
engage that person in activity related to their “who”. The volunteer must “play along” until they figure
out who they are. Discussion may follow about what virtues that person used or possessed.
Who Is It?
Primary
Virtue:
Secondary
Virtues:
Courtesy
Determination, Flexibility, Friendliness, Idealism, Joyfulness, Kindness,
Orderliness, Patience, Purposefulness, Respect, Service, Steadfastness, Tact,
Tolerance
Description: Students are chosen to play different characters or attributes. These characters are invited
to a party and one student is chosen to “throw” the party. As the student who is throwing the party
pantomimes preparing for the party (for example, setting the table, putting up decorations, icing the
cake, wrapping presents, etc.), the characters/guests knock on an imaginary door, enter the party room
and must be their character or attribute at the party without saying who or what they are. It is the job of
the host to guess. For example, a guest may be an animal or have an occupation or possess a virtue, etc.
The game is like charades within a scene. Once the party thrower guesses a character, the character
leaves the scene through the door they came in.
Variation 1: Characters may attend the party who have a particular problem and the host has to try to
make sure all their guests have a good time at the party. This may be difficult considering the problems
the guests may have, which makes this game a challenge and sometimes humorous.
Variation 2: Famous or historical characters may attend the party.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)
Caring, Compassion, Consideration, Forgiveness,
Generosity, Gentleness, Helpfulness, Mercy, Reliability,
Service, Trust, Trustworthiness
Humility, Loyalty, Reverence
Variation 1
Variation 2
Wink You’re Out
Primary Virtue: Honesty
Determination, Flexibility, Self-Discipline, Trustworthiness
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Students sit in a circle. Pass playing cards to each student. Whoever gets the 2 of hearts
is “it”. The one who is it has to, very carefully without being noticed by the other students, wink at
someone. If that students notices they have been winked at, they immediately say “I’m out”. The goal
is to identify the person who is “it” before you are winked at.
Word Wide Web
32 of 34
Primary Virtue: Confidence
Assertiveness, Creativity, Determination, Flexibility, Responsibility
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Students stand in a circle surrounding the teacher (pointer) who stands in the middle of
the circle. A theme or topic is decided by the group or by the pointer. The pointer points to any student
in the circle and that person must immediately come up with a word associated with that theme/topic.
The pointer then points to another person (randomly) who must come up with another word associated
with the theme/topic. Whoever is pointed to should always be random, however, words may not be
repeated. Once a word has been used, it may not be used again. If a student is pointed to and is unable
to come up with a word, they are not allowed to pass. The pointer, however, may say, “Keep thinking
and I’ll come back to you.” if the student really does get “stuck” and cannot come up with a word. The
challenge of this game is that the longer you play a topic, the harder it is to come up with associated
words for that topic. This forces the players to think more detailed and creatively about the topic.
Variation 1: A student or teacher is designated as a “caller” who stands outside the circle. As the
students play Word Wide Web, at any time, the caller may call “STOP”. Whoever was the last person to
give a word associated with the topic, takes the place of the pointer and their word becomes the main
topic. As the new pointer points, now the words are associated with their topic. The caller may call out
“STOP” at any time and as often as they like challenging the students to “web” off of the last word of
the previous topic. Once the game is ended, it is always interesting to review what the initial topic was
and what the last associated word was.
Variation 2: A student is chosen to leave the room while the group decides on a topic. When the
student returns, they become the pointer and stand in the center of the circle. As they point randomly to
the students, they collect as many words/clues as they can to figure out what the topic is. The pointer
may point to as many people as they like, but get only three guesses at the topic. If after three guesses,
they still do not get the correct answer, the answer is given and a new person leaves the room. If they
guess correctly within three guesses, then they get to choose who leaves the room. Note: Teachers
should encourage students to give subtle clues at first and not give away the topic too quickly in the
beginning by giving obvious clues. Also, the pointer/guesser should be encouraged to collect many
clues before guessing as guessing too quickly usually ends up being incorrect.
Virtue Variation: (Virtues that apply only to the variation listed.)
Excellence, Moderation, Patience, Purposefulness, Reliability,
Steadfastness, Tact, Unity
Variation 2
Zig Zag Zog
Primary Virtue: Determination
Excellence, Orderliness, Purposefulness, Reliability, Responsibility, Unity
Secondary
Virtues:
Description: Students stand in a circle. The teacher begins by making eye contact with another player
and says the word “zig”. The person who has been “zigged” makes eye contact with a random person in
the circle and says “zag”. The person who has been “zagged” makes eye contact with another random
person and says “zog”, and simultaneously does a motion that is only done on “zog”. On the word
33 of 34
“zog” the player claps their hands together once, steps forward with one foot and motions with one hand
after the clap to the person they are “zogging”. After the group masters the motions of the game, it is
then played for speed and accuracy.
Variation: Instead of saying the words zig, zag and zog, a three syllable word may be substituted
(COUR – TE – SY) or a three part sequence may be used (for example, big, bigger, biggest or 1, 2, 3 or
seed, sprout, flower.) Another suggestion might be to go through the entire alphabet or count for a
continuous sequence.

1)
Virtuous Senses
VIRTUE(S): Any Virtue
Children are asked to imagine what a particular virtue would look like, its color,
shape or size; then they are asked to imagine what it would taste like, smell like,
sound like. The teacher then provides the students with different cut outs of shapes,
objects, foods, colors, musical instruments, etc. for them to put on their virtue
collage.
MATERIALS NEEDED: crayons, washable markers, paper, different cut outs of
shapes, objects, foods, colors, musical instruments, etc
2)
Love Heart Necklace
VIRTUE(S): Love
Cut a heart shape as large as your student’s hand out of plain or construction paper.
Have the students dip their hand in tempera paint and press it on to the paper.
Punch a hole in the top of the heart and string yarn through it to make a necklace.
Write a message on it and glue a picture of the student on the other side. Send or
give the heart necklace to a special friend or relative.
MATERIALS NEEDED: crayons, washable markers, hole punch, yarn, tempera
paint, paper or construction paper, pencil, glue, Polaroid camera
3)
Thankfulness Can
VIRTUE(S): Thankfulness
Ask the students what things they are thankful for and write them on a chalkboard
or poster board. Have the students write on index cards what they are thankful for
(or have smaller children glue appropriate pictures or draw what they are thankful
for on index cards). Decorate an empty coffee can and place the cards inside the
can. At bedtime, breakfast or quiet time, students can reach into the can and
remove one card, then talk about what is on the card with someone and say why
they are thankful for it.
MATERIALS NEEDED: chalk or poster board, index cards, pencils, (for smaller
children have virtue pictures) crayons, washable markers, decorative paper, glue,
coffee cans for students
1 of 70
4)
Thank You Cards
VIRTUE(S): Thankfulness
Cards can be made from cardstock or from a sheet of paper folded into quarters.
Decorate the cards with stickers, trace cookie cutter shapes, trace around hands,
glue pictures from magazines, draw with crayons, etc. Provide a stamped envelope
(possible with returned address filled in) for the thank you cards.
MATERIALS NEEDED: cardstock or paper folded into quarters, crayons,
washable markers, paper or posters, glue, virtue pictures, stickers, traceable shapes
or cookie cutters, envelopes, stamps
5)
Painting or Drawing Blindfolded
VIRTUE(S): Any virtue
After discussing a particular virtue, the children are given paint or drawing
materials to make a picture of what that virtue feels like. They are asked to
concentrate on that virtue, think about it and let their art show what the virtue feels
like. Music that enhances the feeling of that virtue may be incorporated.
MATERIALS NEEDED: crayons or paints or washable markers, paper, music and
CD/tape player
6)
Virtues Large and Small
VIRTUE(S): Any virtue
On a very large chalkboard or paper, the teacher writes the name of a virtue. Then
on a very small piece of paper, the teacher writes the same virtue again. The
teacher then talks with the students about what kinds of acts would be considered
large acts of that virtue and what would be some small acts or examples of that
virtue. The teacher may make the point that if each of us in the world were to do
small acts, they would add up to be as big as the large example. The children can
then color, paint or decorate the large virtue and take home the name of the virtue
on their own small piece of paper in their pocket or special box they design.
MATERIALS NEEDED: large chalk board or paper, crayons or paints or
washable markers, paper, decorative stickers or do dads, if you are going to make
the special boxes: small boxes, glue, and pretty wrapping paper, tape

and scissors
8)
Analogies
VIRTUE(S): Any virtue
Relate virtues to the weather, colors, sounds, tastes, smells, animals, etc. For
example, what kind of weather would peacefulness be? The teacher may have
several picture representations related to weather (clouds, rain, wind, sun, snow, ice,
etc.) and have the children discuss which one they would choose. Talk or explain
about how each may or may not apply to that virtue. What would joyfulness taste
like? What color would honor be? Create symbols and draw them or do collages of
all the different analogies of a virtue. Younger students may need the connections
to be made for them and be given examples. Older students can come up with the
connections through discussion.
MATERIALS NEEDED: pictures of weather (e.g. clouds, rain, sun, snow…),
plain or construction paper, washable markers, glue, cut out pictures that may
symbolize a virtue (e.g. a mother cradling a child symbolizes caring or love)
9)
Virtue Mind Map
VIRTUE(S): Any virtue
The teacher presents a problem or situation to the students (for example, sharing a
new toy with friends). The problem or situation is written in a circle in the center of
a poster or chalkboard (a picture representation may be used for smaller children
along with the words). Then the children are asked what virtues they might need to
solve the problem or to apply to the situation. With each virtue that is named, a line
is drawn extending out from the circle that contains the problem or situation and the
virtue is contained in a circle connecting the virtue to the problem. Each new virtue
extends from the center circle in the same way. Students can then paste pictures in
their mind map and decorate it. For the example of the problem sharing toys, some
of the virtues that may extend from this might be Courtesy, Detachment, Trust,
Generosity, etc.

of each of the cardboard rectangles with a thin layer of glue, and place the glue-side
down on the “wrong” side of the paper or fabric making sure it is centered.
Carefully fold over the top and bottom edges of the paper or fabric and glue them to
the card board. For the side pieces, angel the corners (as though you are wrapping a
gift), fold over; and glue the edges to the cardboard. Cut two pieces of wrapping
paper or fabric to the exact size of or a little smaller than, the cardboard sheets.
Glue each to the “inside” of your cardboard covers to hide the rough edges of paper
or fabric. Decide which edge will be the binding side of your covers (it has to be
the same side on both covers). Mark three dots ¼ inch from the edge of the binding
side of each cover. The dots must be spaced evenly from top to bottom and be
spaced exactly the same on both covers. Using your hole puncher, punch holes in
the covers where the dots are. Cut drawing paper to make pages that fit inside your
book. Using one cover as a guide, hold up you pages to the cover and punch holes
in the same positions through each sheet of paper. Place the covers with the
punched edges touching side by side and measure a length of ribbon that is twice as
long as the combined width of the covers. Lay the ribbon flat across both covers so

201) Eggheads: (EcoArt, pg 79)
VIRTUE(S): Steadfastness
Rinse and save eggshells in an egg carton for awhile, so you have several to work
with. The best eggshells for this project are those broken straight across, slightly
larger than half a shell. To make an egghead, first select a large half shell. Draw on
comical facial features with permanent markers. Fill the shell with some soil,
sprinkle grass seed in it and moisten with water. Set several eggheads in the egg
carton near a sunny window. And in a bout a week, they will have a funny head of
“hair”. When you are finished enjoying your egghead, plant the entire thing in the
ground to provide food for the soil.
MATERIALS NEEDED: eggshells egg carton, markers, soil, grass seed, water
202) Animal Noses, Horns, and Ears: (Muppets Big Book of Crafts, pg 214-215)

evenly with ribbon and/or add glitter. Cut the poster board as shown on page 215.
Roll the cut out shape into a cone about 17 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter at
the base and 1 inch in diameter at the top. Glue down the overlapping edge. Place
glue on the back of some pretty ribbon and wrap it around the horn; glue down the
ends. Or, trace the outline of a dinner plate onto yellow construction paper. Place a
smaller plate in the center of the circle and trace another circle. Draw a wave
pattern within the narrow band created by the tracings. Cut out the narrow band
then cut away the wavy design. Wrap it around your horn and glue at the ends.
Bend two paper clips into right angles and tape them to the inside bottom of the
horn on opposite sides. Using clear tape, tape the paper clips to the head bands.
68 of 70
Bend four more paper clips into right angles and tape them onto the headband
where the ears will go. You may use the ear pattern on page 316 or create your
own. Draw ears on poster board and cut out. Decorate with paint, markers and or
glitter glue. Fold ears as shown on page 215 and clip them to the head band. Wrap
a piece of tape around the base to secure. Tie or tap curled ribbons to the headband
so that they dangle down over your ears. To hide the paper clips place glue on the
back side of some short lengths of whit ribbon and wrap each length around a clip.
MATERIALS NEEDED: Headband, clear tape, masking tape, poster board,
tracing paper, glitter, paper clips, markers, glue, ribbon, poster board, round dinner

206) Invisible Ink: (The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions, pg 26)
VIRTUE(S): Trustworthiness
Pour lemon juice into a small glass or plastic dish. Soak one end of the cotton swab
in the lemon juice. Use the lemon juice-soaked cotton swab to write a secret

toaster. The heat will slowly turn the lemon juice dark brow and reveal the
message.

Predict Your Future:
Girl Power! Cootie Catcher
Follow these directions to make a cootie catcher. When you are
finished read the instructions at the end on how to play.
1. Start with a rectangular
sheet of paper. Fold the
bottom of the paper to the
side of the page to make a
triangle.
2. Then cut off the flap
above the triangle.
3. Now open the triangle and
you'll have a square.
4. Fold one corner to the
other corner diagonally.
5. Open paper.
6. Fold corners toward center
of paper.
7. When all 4 corners are
folded, your paper will look
like this.
8. Flip your paper over so
the folded sides are face
down.
9. Again, fold corners toward
center diagonally.

10. When all 4 corners are
folded, your paper will look
like this.
11. On the same side, write
the numbers 1 through 8,
putting one number in each
triangle.
12. Hold the paper in front of
you like a square. Fold it in
half vertically and open it
back up again.
13. Then fold the square in
half horizontally and open it
back up again. Make sure
that the numbers you've
written are facing you.
14. Open each flap and write
a fortune on each triangle
inside. When your fortunes
are written, close all the
flaps. Here are some

Pancakes Recipe 1
Page 1 of 1
Pancakes Recipe 1
1/2 pint of milk
2 ounces of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Butter
Mix the flour and baking powder together, adding the milk slowly. Put the batter aside,
for at least two hours, or the pancakes will not be light. Use a six-inch frying-pan and
for this size half a teacup of batter will be required and a piece of butter half the size
of a walnut. Just let the butter get hot, and thoroughly grease the pan before putting in
the batter. Turn with a broad-bladed knife as soon as brown, and brown on the other
side. Roll when done, and sift powdered sugar over the pancakes.

20 Kids * 20 Kites * 20 Minutes
Page 1 of 3
Big Wind Kite Factory, Moloka'i, Hawai'i presents:
20 Kids * 20 Kites * 20 Minutes
Uncle Jonathan's easiest classroom kites ever.
For over 15 years the Big Wind Kite Factory has been giving kite making classes for the children on the island of
Moloka'i in Hawai'i. These are the complete time tested instructions to get 20 kids making their own kites and
flying them in 20 minutes.
Material list:
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
20 sheets of brightly colored 8 1/2" x 11" typing paper.
20 8" bamboo bar-b-que shishkabab sticks.
1 roll of florescent surveyor's flagging plastic tape. Available at any hardware store. A plastic bag cut in a 1"
wide spiral all around will also make a great tail.
1 roll 1/2"wide masking tape or any type of plastic tape..
1 roll of string. (At least 200', 6 to 10 feet for each child.)
20 pieces of 1"x 3" cardboard on which to wind the string.
Scissors.
Hole punch. (optional)
Directions:
1. Fold a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper in half to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".
2. Fold again along the diagonal line A in Fig.2.
3. Fold back one side forming kite shape in Fig.3 and place tape firmly along fold line AB.(No stick is needed
here because the fold stiffins the paper and acts like a spine.)
4. Place bar-b-que stick from point C to D and tape it down firmly.
5. Cut off 6 to 10 feet of plastic ribbon and tape it to the bottom of the kite at B.
6. Flip kite over onto its back and fold the front flap back and forth until it stands straight up.(Otherwise it acts
like a rudder and the kite spins around in circles.)
7. Punch a hole in the flap at E, about 1/3 down from the top point A.
8. Tie one end of the string to the hole and wind the other end onto the cardboard string winder.

...Make your own kite!...
Page 1 of 3
[ How does a Kite Fly? | Kite Flyers | The History of Kites | Make your own kite | My Kite! | Kite Sites! | FAQ | This
Site ]
Have ever wanted to build a kite? Well, here is a simple kite you can make your self!
A kite consists of these basic parts:
l The Spine. The up-and-down, or vertical stick that you build your kite around.
l The Spar. The support stick(s), that are placed crossways or at a slant over the spine.
Sometimes they are curved or bowed.
l The Frame. The joined spine and spars, usually with a string connecting their ends, that form
the shape of the kite and make a support for the cover.
l The Cover. The paper, plastic, or cloth, that cover the frame to make a kite.
l The Bridle. One or more strings attached to the spine or spars, which help control the kite in
the air.
l The Flying Line. The string running from the kites’ bridle, where you hold to fly the kite.
l The Tail. A long strip of paper or plastic of ribbon that helps to balance the kite in flight. Not
all kites need tails.
l The Reel. The object you use to wind your flying line, to keep it form getting tangled or flying
away.
DIAMOND KITE
Materials:
l butcher cord or thin garden twine
l scotch tape or glue
l 1 sheet of strong paper (102cm x 102cm)
l 2 strong, straight wooden sticks of bamboo or wooden doweling 90cm and 102cm
l markers, paint or crayons to decorate you kite.
1. Make a cross with the two sticks, with the shorter stick placed
horizontally across the longer stick. Make sure that both sides of the
cross piece is equal in width.
2. Tie the two sticks together with the string in such a way as to make
sure that they are at right angles to each other. A good way to ensure
http://www.skratch-pad.com/kites/make.html
9/17/2004
...Make your own kite!...
Page 2 of 3
that the joint is strong to put a dab of glue to stick it in place.
3. Cut a notch at each end of both sticks. Make it deep enough for the
type of string you are using to fit in to. Cut a piece of string long enough
to stretch all around the kite frame. Make a loop in the top notch and
fasten it by wrapping the string around the stick. Stretch the string
through the notch at one end of the cross-piece, and make another loop
at the bottom. Stretch the string through the notch at one end of the
loop at the bottom. Stretch the string through the notch at the other
end of the cross-piece. Finish by wrapping the string a few times around
the top of the stick and cutting off what you don't need. This string
frame must be taut, but not so tight as to warp the sticks.
4. Lay the sail material flat and place the stick frame face down on top. Cut around it, leaving about
2-3cm for a margin. Fold these edges over the string frame and tape or glue it down so that the
material is tight.
5. Cut a piece of string about 122 cm long. and tie one end
to the loop at the other end of the string to the loop at the
bottom. Tie another small loop in the string just above the
intersection of the two cross pieces. This will be the kite's
bridle, the string to which the flying line is attached.
6. Make a tail by tying a small ribbon roughly every 10cm
along the length of string. Attach the tail to the loop at the
bottom of the kite.
7. Decorate!
Tips:
l A properly located pivot point is generally located slightly ahead of the centre of gravity.
l Cut away from you!
l Spray can glue is really good for patching up paper kites.
l Stability is improved by the use of an effective bow and a flexible tail.
l Hold your kite up by the string when you are finished to see if it is balanced. You can balance it
by putting more paper on one side.
l Kites are different each time you make one, so slight adjustments might need to be made for
each kite.

Aesop’s Fables
The Ant and the Dove
VIRTUE(S) Helpfulness, Friendship
An ant went to the bank of a river to drink water, carried away by the rush of the stream,
and was on the point of drowning. A Dove sitting on a tree overhanging the water
plucked a leaf and let it fall into the stream close to her. The Ant climbed onto it and
floated in safety to the bank. Shortly afterwards a bird catcher came and stood under the
tree, to catch the Dove. The Ant, realizing what he was going to do, stung him in the
foot. In pain the bird catcher threw down the net, and the noise made the Dove fly away.
The Ant and the Grasshopper
VIRTUE(S) Responsible, Justice
In a field one summer's day a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its
heart's content. An Ant passed by, working hard to carry an ear of corn to his nest.
"Why not come and sing with me," said the Grasshopper, "instead of working so hard?"
"I am helping to store food for the winter," said the Ant, "and you should do the same."
"Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper; we have got plenty of food now." But
the Ant went on its way and continued his work. When the winter came the Grasshopper
had no food and found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the ants distributing every day
corn and grain from the stores they had collected in the summer. Then the Grasshopper
knew: It is best to prepare for the days of necessity.
The Bear and the Two Travelers
VIRTUE(S) Loyalty
Two men were traveling together, when a Bear suddenly met them on their path. One of
them climbed up quickly into a tree and hid himself in the branches. The other, seeing
that he must be attacked, fell flat on the ground, and when the Bear came up and felt him
with his snout, and smelt him all over, he held his breath, and feigned the appearance of
death as much as he could. The Bear soon left him, for it is said he will not touch a dead
body. When he was quite gone, the other Traveler descended from the tree, and jocularly
inquired of his friend what it was the Bear had whispered in his ear. "He gave me this
advice," his companion replied. "Never trust a friend who deserts you at the sign of
danger."
1 of 6
The Boy and the Pecans
VIRTUE(S) Moderation
A boy put his hand into a pitcher full of pecans. He grasped as many as he could possibly
hold, but when he tried to pull out his hand, but he couldn’t because the top of the pitcher
was too small. Not wanting to lose his pecans even though he couldn’t get his hand out,
he burst into tears and complained. A person passing by said to him, "Be satisfied with
half the pecans and you will easily get your hand out."
The Boy and the Cactus
VIRTUE(S) Assertive, Confident
A boy was stung by a cactus. He ran home and told his Mother, saying, "Although it
hurts me very much, I only touched it gently." "That was just why it stung you," said his
Mother. "The next time you touch a cactus, grasp it boldly, and it will be soft as silk to
your hand, and not in the least hurt you."
The Boys and the Frogs
VIRTUE(S) Compassion, Responsible
Some boys, playing near a pond, saw a number of Frogs in the water and began to hit
them with stones. They killed several of them, when one of the Frogs, lifting his head out
of the water, cried out: "Please stop, my boys: what is fun to you is death to us."
The Bundle of Sticks
VIRTUE(S) Unity
An old man on the point of death summoned his sons around him to give them some
parting advice. He ordered his servants to bring in a bundle of sticks, and said to his
eldest son: "Break it." The son strained and strained, but with all his efforts was unable
to break the Bundle. The other sons also tried, but none of them was successful. "Untie
the sticks," said the father, "and each of you take a stick." When they had done so, he
called out to them: "Now, break," and each stick was easily broken. "You see my
meaning," said their father.
The Crow and the Pitcher
VIRTUE(S) Determination, Creative
A Crow, half-dead with thirst, came upon a Pitcher which had once been full of water;
but when the Crow put its beak into the mouth of the Pitcher he found that only very little
water was left in it, and that he could not reach far enough down to get at it. He tried, and
2 of 6
he tried, but at last had to give up in despair. Then a thought came to him, and he took a
pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped it into
the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher. Then he took
another pebble and dropped that into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and
dropped that into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped that into the
Pitcher. At last, at last, he saw the water mount up near him, and after casting in a few
more pebbles he was able to quench his thirst and save his life. Little by little does the
trick.
The Dog and the Bone
VIRTUE(S) Moderation, Thankfulness
A dog, crossing a bridge over a stream with a bone in his mouth, saw his own shadow in
the water and took it for that of another Dog, with another bone in his mouth. He
immediately let go of his own, and fiercely attacked the other Dog to get his. He thus lost
both: that which he grasped at in the water, because it was a shadow; and his own,
because the stream swept it away.
The Hare with Many Friends
VIRTUE(S) Loyalty, Reliability
A Hare was very popular with the other animals who all claimed to be her friends. But
one day she heard the hounds approaching and hoped to escape them by the aid of her
many Friends. So, she went to the horse, and asked him to carry her away from the
hounds on his back. But he declined, stating that he had important work to do for his
master. "He felt sure," he said, "that all her other friends would come to her assistance."
She then applied to the bull, and hoped that he would repel the hounds with his horns.
The bull replied: "I am very sorry, but I have an appointment with a lady; but I feel sure
that our friend the goat will do what you want." The goat, however, feared that his back
might do her some harm if he took her upon it. The ram, he felt sure, was the proper
friend to apply to. So she went to the ram and told him the case. The ram replied:
"Another time, my dear friend. I do not like to interfere on the present occasion, as
hounds have been known to eat sheep as well as hares." The Hare then applied, as a last
hope, to the calf, who regretted that he was unable to help her, as he did not like to take
the responsibility upon himself, as so many older persons than himself had declined the
task. By this time the hounds were quite near, and the Hare took to her heels and luckily
escaped.
3 of 6
The Lion and the Mouse
VIRTUE(S) Forgiveness, Trustworthiness
Once when a Lion was asleep a little Mouse began running up and down upon him; this
soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to
swallow him. "Pardon, O King," cried the little Mouse: "forgive me this time, I shall
never forget it: who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?"
The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him that he lifted up
his paw and let him go. Some time after the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters
who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of
a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the
sad plight, in which the Lion was, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that
bound the King of the Beasts. "Was I not right?" said the little Mouse.
Mercury and the Woodman
VIRTUE(S) Honesty, Truthfulness, Trustworthiness
A Woodman was felling a tree on the bank of a river, when his axe, glancing off the
trunk, flew out of his hands and fell into the water.
As he stood by the water's edge lamenting his loss, Mercury appeared and asked him the
reason for his grief. On learning what had happened, out of pity for his distress, Mercury
dived into the river and, bringing up a golden axe, asked him if that was the one he had
lost.
The Woodman replied that it was not, and Mercury then dived a second time, and,
bringing up a silver axe, asked if that was his. "No, that is not mine either," said the
Woodman. Once more Mercury dived into the river, and brought up the missing axe. The
Woodman was overjoyed at recovering his property, and thanked his benefactor warmly;
and the latter was so pleased with his honesty that he made him a present of the other two
axes. When the Woodman told the story to his companions, one of these was filled with
envy of his good fortune and determined to try his luck for himself. So he went and began
to fell a tree at the edge of the river, and presently contrived to let his axe drop into the
water. Mercury appeared as before, and, on learning that his axe had fallen in, he dived
and brought up a golden axe, as he had done on the previous occasion. Without waiting to
be asked whether it was his or not, the fellow cried, "That's mine, that's mine," and
stretched out his hand eagerly for the prize: but Mercury was so disgusted at his
dishonesty that he not only declined to give him the golden axe, but also refused to
recover for him the one he had let fall into the stream.
The Shepherd's Boy and the Wolf
VIRTUE(S) Truthfulness, Trustworthiness, Responsibility
A Shepherd’s Boy, who watched a flock of sheep near a village, brought out the villagers
three or four times by crying out, "Wolf! Wolf!" and when his neighbors came to help
4 of 6
him, laughed at them for their pains. The Wolf, however, did come the next day. The
Shepherd-boy, now really afraid, shouted: "Please, come and help me; the Wolf is killing
the sheep"; but no one paid any attention to him. The Wolf, having no one to stop him
ate the sheep.
The Milkmaid and Her Pail
VIRTUE(S) Humility
Patty the Milkmaid was going to market carrying her milk in a Pail on her head. As she
went along she began calculating what she would do with the money she would get for
the milk. "I'll buy some chickens from Farmer Brown," said she, "and they will lay eggs
each morning, which I will sell to the parson's wife. With the money that I get from the
sale of these eggs I'll buy myself a new dress and a hat; and when I go to market, won't
all the young men come up and speak to me! Polly Shaw will be that jealous; but I don't
care. I shall just look at her and toss my head like this. As she spoke she tossed her head
back, the Pail fell off it, and all the milk was spilt. So she had to go home and tell her
mother what had occurred. “Ah, my child," said the mother, "Do not count your chickens
before they are hatched."
The Man and His Gold
VIRTUE(S) Generosity
Once upon a time there was a man who used to hide his gold at the foot of a tree in his
garden; but every week he used to go and dig it up and gloat over his gains. A robber,
who had noticed this, went and dug up the gold and decamped with it. When the man
next came to gloat over his treasures, he found nothing but the empty hole. He tore his
hair, and raised such an outcry that all the neighbors came around him, and he told them
how he used to come and visit his gold. "Did you ever take any of it out?" asked one of
them. "No," said he, "I only came to look at it." "Then come again and look at the hole,"
said a neighbor; "it will do you just as much good." Wealth unused might as well not
exist.
The Tortoise and the Hare
VIRTUE(S) Determination, Self-Discipline, Humility
The Hare was once bragging of his speed before the other animals. "I have never yet
been beaten," said he, "when I put forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race
with me."
The Tortoise said quietly, "I accept your challenge."
"That is a good joke," said the Hare; "I could dance round you all the way."
5 of 6
"Stop bragging until you’ve won," answered the Tortoise. "Shall we race?"
So a course was set and the race began. The Hare darted almost out of sight at once, but
soon stopped and, to show his contempt for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap. The
Tortoise plodded on and plodded on, and when the Hare awoke from his nap, he saw the
Tortoise just near the winning-post and could not run up in time to save the race. Then
said the Tortoise: “Plodding wins the race."
The Travelers and the Plane-Tree
VIRTUE(S) Kindness, Thankfulness
Two travelers, worn out by the heat of the summer's sun, laid themselves down at noon
under the wide spreading branches of a Plane-Tree. As they rested under its shade, one
of the Travelers said to the other, "What a useless tree is the Plane! It bears no fruit, and
is not of the least service to man." The Plane-Tree, interrupting him, said, "You
ungrateful fellows! Do you, while receiving benefits from me and resting under my
shade, dare to describe me as useless, and unprofitable? 'Some men underrate their best
blessings.
The Wind and the Sun
VIRTUE(S) Kindness
The Wind and the Sun were arguing which was the stronger. Suddenly they saw a
traveler coming down the road, and the Sun said: "I see a way to decide our argument.
Whichever of us can cause that traveler to take off his coat shall be regarded as the
stronger. You begin." So the Sun hid behind a cloud, and the Wind began to blow as
hard as it could upon the traveler. But the harder he blew the more closely the traveler
held his coat around him, till at last the Wind had to give up. Then the Sun came out and
shone in all his glory upon the traveler, who soon found it too hot to walk with his coat
on. Kindness effects more than severity

INTRODUCTION TO VIRTUES SKITS
By Carrie Paige Smith
Children learn easily from active, physical participation in the lesson. Initially, ten
virtues have been proposed to teach very young children in Sunday School. Since
children enjoy acting and pretending, a skit on the virtue, caring, has been prepared at
kindergarten/first grade level. Others can be prepared for various age levels.
CAST: Characters are identified simply as “child” and “adult.” The number of
actors may vary by assigning as many as the director chooses to appropriate
dialogue. Gender is not identified, therefore, actors of either sex may be assigned to
any role. Roles identified as “adult” may be assigned to children.
STAGING: The Skit does not need a stage, The theater in the round concept can be
used, with audience seating circling the actors. (Theater in the round requires no
curtain.)
SCENERY AND PROPS: All clothing and props are contemporary. Scenery may
be merely suggested, i.e., a “pond” may be a piece of blue cloth, rumpled to imply
waves; children’s artwork can represent flowers, etc.
Children are extremely imaginative and innovative. Their willingness to pretend
makes skits an ideal form of teaching via play for most of them.
LENGTH OF SCRIPT: Dialogue may be edited to change the length of the skit if
the story line remains unaltered. Skits may be lengthened by adding simple games
or songs if the teacher wishes. Group songs allow more timid children, or those who
don’t want to learn lines, to participate.
The skits may be read to non-reading children, using several readers or just a
teacher who calls the name of each character as he/she reads.
MANNER OF PRESENTATION: Play may be performed or just read. In no event
should the play become a stressful chore for the children. THE SOLE OBJECTIVE
IS TO IMPRESS THE CHILDREN WITH AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE
VIRTUE PRESENTED. The skits are spiritual, not academic, exercises.
BEGIN ALL PRESENTATIONS WITH PRAYER OR SHORT LINES OF
SCRIPTURES THAT ILLUSTRATE THE VIRTUE OF THE SKIT.
These skits should be particularly useful in small Sunday School gatherings where
the ages of the children may be greatly varied.

SETTING & STAGE PROPS: Scene occurs outdoors, by a small duck pond. A
path borders the pond. There are a few flowers that can conceal a duck’s nest. One
egg is needed.
Adult:
Today, our lesson from the Virtues book is caring. Do you know what
caring is?
Child:
(Ignoring the adult) Look at all the ducks! Big ones and little ones,
white ones and big brown ones and lots of fuzzy, yellow baby ones!
Adult:
Let’s see if the ducks can teach us about caring.
Child:
(Stopping, and finally paying attention) How? Ducks can’t talk. They
just quack.
Adult:
Not all teaching is done with words. See the babies following their
mother? She is caring for them. Caring is kindness, making sure
others are OK. Watch the ducks, and you will see them caring for
their babies.
Child:
I’m a duck! (running about) Quack, quack! Quack, quack!
Adult:
You sound just like a duck!
Child:
(Stopping beside the adult) Yes! I make a good duck! I take care of
all the little ducks.
Adult:
Very good! And when parents give children food and make sure they
are safe, that is caring.
Child:
I can talk like a duck! I can fly like one, too! See! (Begins running
around, arms flapping) Quack, quack! Quack, quack!
Adult:
You are a fine duck!
Child:
How do ducks learn to fly?
Adult:
They watch their parents. Also, God gives them something called
instinct. They run and flap their wings until they fly.
Child:
People can’t fly, except in airplanes. Why not?
2 of 5
Adult:
People can’t fly by flapping their arms, but they have learned to make
airplanes and rockets.
Child:
Get out of my way, ducks!
Adult:
Don’t scare the ducks. Be kind to them. The pond is their home. Be
kind to animals. That is one way to be caring.
Child:
I will not be nice to a mean alligator that wants to eat the ducks and
me. I would really hurt him!
Adult:
Even if the alligator was not bothering you or the ducks?
Child:
Yes. He would just be an old alligator. (Starts hitting an imaginary
alligator) I would beat that alligator with a stick so he would not eat
the ducks and me!
Adult:
You would be right to protect yourself and the helpless ducks from
danger. But it is not right to hurt anything, not even an alligator, just
to be mean.
Child:
I want to catch a duck and take it home with me. I could chain it up
in the back yard and feed him dog food.
Adult:
Would that be a caring thing to do?
Child:
I don’t know. (Child suddenly stops and looks in surprise at
something on the ground.) Wow! An egg!
Adult:
An egg?
Child:
A BIGGGG egg!
Adult:
A mother duck must have a nest near here, and her egg rolled out.
Child:
The egg is lost. I got lost once. I was so scared.
Adult:
Did anybody help you find your family?
Child:
Yes. The store lady called my parents on the speaker, and when they
came to answer her, I found them again.
Adult:
Did you know the store lady who helped you?
Child:
No. But she were really nice.
3 of 5
Adult:
Caring people are kind to lost children.
Child:
I want to be caring to the lost egg. I want to find its Mommy and put
it back into the nest.
Adult:
How will you do that? You don’t have a speaker phone.
Child:
(Child laughs) That’s silly. (Child picks up the egg, and begins
running about calling and looking for the nest.) Where are you,
Mommy Duck? I’ve got your egg! Quack, quack!
Adult:
Stop speaking duck. Just look.
(They separate and look all around the pond.)
Child:
(Very happy) Here she is! I found the mother duck and her nest!
(Child reaches toward the nest to put the egg back.) Ouch! She bit
me! Bad duckie!
Adult:
She is not bad. She is a wild animal and thinks you want to hurt her
eggs.
Child:
But I am her caring friend.
Adult:
She doesn’t know that. All she knows is she must care for her eggs
and keep danger away. She wants to fly away, but she stays, risking
her life for her children.
Child:
(To the duck) I won’t hurt you, or your eggs, brave little mother
duck. But you have got to let me give back your lost baby.
Adult:
Sneak behind the nest, and quickly put the egg under her while she’s
watching me.
Child:
(Moves behind the duck) I can’t sneak up on this duck. She has eyes
on both sides of her head! At the same time she’s looking at you, she
is looking at me, too! If I put this egg in the nest, she will bite my
hand again!
Adult:
Sometimes, to care for someone or something that needs help, you
have to get hurt a little. You will have to decide: put the egg back,
and probably get a little bite, or let the unborn little duck die outside
the nest. What do you want to do?
Child:
I DON’T WANT TO BE HURT!
4 of 5
Child:
I can’t let the little duck die.
not me.
But you can put it back and get hurt,
Adult:
I’ll do it if you don’t. But I think you want to do it.
Child:
Yeah, I do. (Child quickly puts egg into the nest.)
Child:
(Jumping up and down and giggling) I did it!
Adult:
Are you happy about the choice you made?
Child:
(Sadly) I really wanted to keep the egg for show and tell. But it was
not really mine, and it would die if it didn’t get back to the mother
duck. (Thinks awhile) When I was lost I wanted to go back to my
Mommy. So I gave the egg back to the Mommy Duck.
Adult:
What you did was caring. Caring is treating others as you want to be
treated.
Child:
Will the egg be OK?
Adult:
Yes. It has a caring mother.
They begin walking away from the pond.
Child:
(To the duck) Bye, Mommy Duck! (To the adult) I wish she could
understand me, and know I care.
(The actors leave. There are a few seconds of silence)
Duck in the Nest: (Loudly) Quack, quack! Quack, quack!

THE TRIPLE FILTER TEST
In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem.
One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just
heard about your friend?"
“Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything, I’d like you to pass a
little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
“Triple filter?" asked his acquaintance.
“That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a
good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That's why I call it the
triple filter test.”
“The first filter is TRUTH. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell
me is true?" “No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and..." replied his
acquaintance.
“All right,” said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let’s try the
second filter, the filter of GOODNESS. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend
something good?" “No, on the contrary..." replied his acquaintance.
“So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not
certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter
of USEFULNESS. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to
me?" “No, not really." replied his acquaintance.
“Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor
even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
This is why Socrates was a great philosopher & held in such high esteem. Friends, use
this triple filter each time you hear loose talk about anyone or anything.

Pat him*, kiss him,
Stroke him, bless him;
Three days sunshine,
Three days rain.
Pat him, kiss him,
Stroke him, bless him;
Little boy**
All well again.
Be kind to all God's creatures,
It's what He asks of you.
To make their lives more pleasant,
Do all that you can do.
Whenever they may come for
Protection or for food,
Do what you can to help them,
And spread a little good.
Be kind to all God's creatures,
It's what He asks of you.
Remember that love sent out
Will come right back to you!

Baby Dear (Confidence: courage,
faithfulness, love, peacefulness, trust)
Words and Music By: Myles Birket Foster
Be kind to all God's creatures,
Remembering that He
Who made you also made
All the butterflies and bees.
And if the falling sparrow,
So tenderly He heeds,
He surely will reward you,
For all your loving deeds.
Be kind to all God's creatures,
It's what He asks of you.
Remember that love sent out
Will come right back to you!
The sun's fading out of sight,
Baby dear, Baby dear;
But I'll be close by all night,
So do not fear.
Within your little room,
Shadows creep,
The shadows creep,
But love watches over thee,
Love watches over thee.
Sleep!
Do not fear;
Sleep,
Baby dear!
Be kind to all God's creatures,
It's what He asks of you.
To make their lives more pleasant,
Do all that you can do.
Take pity on God's creatures,
Show tenderness and love;
Then there will be much treasure
Awaiting you above.
Be kind to all God's creatures,
When shadows of darkness fall,
Through the night, through the night;
God's arms wrap around us all,
We're safe tonight.
The light may seem to fade;
Shadows creep,
The shadows creep,
Still God watches over thee,

It's what He asks of you.
Remember that love sent out
Will come right back to you!
And I'll shine down on you!

make a large circle like the sun.)
Betty Botter (Determination: excellence,
purposefulness, steadfastness)
Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme
Can you be a raindrop,
A raindrop, a raindrop?
Can you be a raindrop?
Then show me what you'd do.
Betty Botter bought some butter,
"But," she said, "the butter's bitter;
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter;
But a bit of better butter,
That would make my batter better."
I can be a raindrop,
A raindrop, a raindrop.
I can be a raindrop,
So here's some rain for you!
(Arms in the air, fingers floating down like
rain)
So she bought a bit of butter,
Better than her bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter;
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.
But I Love You
(Love Song for Mama) (Love)
The buzzing bees love the clover patch,

Can you be a flower?
Then show me what you'd do.
I can be a flower,
A flower, a flower.
I can be a flower,
Growing just for you!

slowly 'growing' to stand big and tall)
The sunshine, it kisses the mountainside,
The stars in the sky kiss the sea,
But I'd be the happiest boy (girl) on earth
If you'd kiss me!
Can you be a buzzing bee,
A buzzing bee, a buzzing bee?
Can you be a buzzing bee?
Then show me what you'd do.

Don't let it stick around,
Chase it, oh, so far away
It never will be found!
When the world seems to forget you
And the road ahead is rough,

And your luck is running tough,

Dancing so merrily,
So merrily, heigh ho.

Come, let us be joyful
While life is bright and gay
Come, gather its rosebuds
Ere they fade away
(Clap hands while singing)
The eensey weensy spider
Climbed up the kitchen wall
Swoosh! went the fan
And made the spider fall
Off went the fan
No longer did it blow

Back up the wall did go
Oh, don't you worry and don't you fret,
(Shake head from side to side)
There's lots of life in the old world yet,
We'll take the rose, the thorn forget,
(Point with finger)
The eensey weensy spider
Climbed up the yellow pail
In came a mouse
And flicked her with his tail
Down fell the spider
The mouse ran out the door
Then the eensey weensy spider
Climbed up the pail once more
And go our way rejoicing.

Ever-Grumbling Joe (Flexibility)
Words and Music By: A.S. Gatty
He didn't like chicken,
He didn't like bread,
He didn't like anything
Anyone said;
He didn't like mornings
Or going to bed,
Didn't Grumbling,
Ever-grumbling Joe.
The eensey weensy spider
Climbed up the maple tree
She slipped on some dew
And landed next to me
Out came the sun
And when the tree was dry
The eensey weensy spider
Gave it one more try
He didn't like toys
Or his big sister Jayne,
He didn't like traveling
By bus or by train,
He didn't like sunshine,
He didn't like rain,
Didn't Grumbling,
Ever-grumbling Joe.
The eensey weensy spider
Climbed up without a stop
She spun a silky web
Right at the very top
She wove and she spun
And when her web was done
The eensey weensy spider
Rested in the sun
He didn't like school,
And he didn't like fun,
He didn't like walking,
There's no way he'd run!
He never would listen,
Not to anyone!
No, not Grumbling,
Ever-grumbling Joe.
The Elephant with the book Elmer
Written By: Alice C. D. Riley
Music By: Jessie L. Gaynor
Adapted By: Terry Kluytmans
Adaptation Copyright © 1998 Terry
Kluytmans
Well, Joe's Mom and Dad,
They soon had quite enough
Of little Joe's grumbling
And so they got tough.
They started to take away
All of his stuff!
That cured Grumbling,
Ever-grumbling Joe!
The elephant is big and strong,
His ears are wide, his trunk is long,
His eyes, they are so very small,
He's hardly any eyes at all.
His tail is very short and slim.
His skin is much too large for him.
No matter how he tries to grow,
It always seems to wrinkle so.
And now he likes chicken,
He even likes Jayne!
He plays in the sunshine,
He reads in the rain,
He runs for the paper,
He rides on the train,

No more Grumbling,
Ever-grumbling Joe!

"There's a fire down the street
And we must put it out!"

Four-Leaf Clover (Determination: idealism,
purposefulness, steadfastness)
Words and Music By: Louise Ayres Garnett
I'd like a four-leaf clover,
Clover, clover,
I'd like a four-leaf clover,
No other kind will do.
I'll search the whole world over,
Over, over,
I'll search the whole world over,
And won't stop 'til I'm through!
Up the ladder, climbing high,
The firefighters go,
(Pretend to climb ladder)
Spraying water, Shh-shh-shh!
While folks watch from below.
(Hold 'hose' in hands and pretend to spray
water)
When the fire's out at last, and
All their work is done.
"Thanks!" we'll say, as they drive away,
"For saving everyone!"
(Wave goodbye)
I found a four-leaf clover,
Clover, clover,
I found a four-leaf clover
Where I'd not looked before.
Not up the world and over,
Over, over,
Not up the world and over,
But here beside my door!

Scandinavian Folk Song
Friends Are Special (Friendliness:
faithfulness, love, loyalty, unity)
Traditional
Follow me
Wherever I go,
And do what I do
When I tell you so.
Friends are special when they sing together,
They can sing the whole day,
They can sing the night away,
They can sing together, they can sing.
First we walk
(All walk the same way as the leader does)
Friends are special when they laugh
together,
They can laugh the whole day,
They can laugh the night away,
And then we skip,

And kindness lend,
Oh, be a friend today!
They can laugh together, they can laugh.
Friends are special when they cry together,
They can cry the whole day,
They can cry the night away,
They can cry together, they can cry.
Friendship is a duty,
So let's all do our part,
And share this gift of beauty,
Oh, share it from the heart!
So this is our endeavor,
In song, our pledge we tell:
To make a friend, and ever,
To be a friend as well.
Friendly words are music,
Ringing through the air,
Friendly smiles are sunshine,
And welcome ev'rywhere!
Friendly deeds are jewels,
Their value who can say?
So find a friend,
And kindness lend,
Oh, be a friend today!
Friends are special when they dream
together,
They can dream the whole day,
They can dream the night away,
They can dream together, they can dream.
Friendship (Friendliness)
Words By: Edith S. Tillotson
Music By: V.P. Jones
Friendship is a treasure,
To seek and guard and hold,
Too valuable to measure,
More dear as it grows old!
For no one can retrace it,
If it should go astray,
And nothing can replace it,
So be a friend today!
Friendly words are music,
Ringing through the air,
Friendly smiles are sunshine,
And welcome ev'rywhere!
Friendly deeds are jewels,
Their value who can say?
So find a friend,
And kindness lend,
Oh, be a friend today!

Friendly smiles are sunshine,

Funiculi, Funicula (Joyfulness)
Traditional
Words and Music By: L. Denza
9 of 26
Some think the world is made for fun and
frolic,
And so do I! And so do I!
Some think it well to be all melancholic,
To pine and sigh; to pine and sigh;
But I, I love to spend my time in singing,
Some joyous song, some joyous song,
To set the air with music bravely ringing
Is far from wrong! Is far from wrong!
Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Listen, listen, echoes sound afar!
Funiculi, funicula, funiculi, funicula!
Echoes sound afar, funiculi, funicula!
Ah me! 'tis strange that some should take to
sighing,
And like it well! And like it well!
For me, I have not thought it worth the
trying,
So cannot tell! So cannot tell!
With laugh, with dance and song the day
soon passes
Full soon is gone, full soon is gone,
For mirth was made for joyous lads and
lasses
To call their own! To call their own!
Listen, listen, hark the soft guitar!
Listen, listen, hark the soft guitar!
Funiculi, funicula, funiculi, funicula!
Hark the soft guitar, funiculi, funicula!
Geography Song (Kindness: reverence)
Words and Music By: Unknown
Oh! Have you heard Geography sung?
For if you've not, it's on my tongue;
About the Earth in space that's hung,
All covered with little green islands.
Oceans, gulfs, and bays, and seas;
Channels and straits, rivers and streams;
Great Archipelagoes, too, and all these
Are covered with little green islands.
All o'er the earth are water and land,
Beneath the ships, or where we stand,
And far beyond the ocean strand
Are thousands of little green islands.
Continents and capes there are,
Isthmus and then peninsula,
Mountains and valleys, and shore, stretching
far,
And thousands of little green islands.
All o'er the globe some circles are found;
From east to west they stretch around.
Some go from north to southern bound,
Right over the little green islands.
Great equator, tropics two,
Latitude lines, longitude too,
Cold arctic circles, and all these go thro'
The thousands of little green islands.
To Planet Earth forever commit,
A promise to take care of it.
Don't ever sway a little bit;
Or we'll lose our little green islands.
Here's one thing that you can do:
Reduce, re-use, recycle, too,
Take care of earth, it will take care of you,
So we'll always have our green islands.
Go To Bed Early (Self-discipline, caring,
helpfulness)
Old Nursery Rhyme
Go to bed early -- wake up with joy;
Go to bed late -- sad girl or boy.
Go to bed early -- ready for play;
Go to bed late -- grumpy all day.
Go to bed early -- no pains or ills;
Go to bed late -- doctors and pills.
Go to bed early -- grow very tall.
Go to bed late -- stay very small.

God Is Love (Reverence: faithfulness, love,
peacefulness, trust)
Written By: Harry Lee
Music By: J.H. Fillmore
"God is love," the snowflakes whisper,
As they float down from the sky,
"God is love," the breezes murmur,
As they softly whistle by.
God is love, God is love,
All things tell us: "God is love."
Little stars that shine in heaven,
As they twinkle far above,
Sparkling, smiling, at each other,
Whisper gently, "God is love."
God is love, God is love,
All things tell us: "God is love."
"God is love," the raindrops tell us,
In their pitter-patter way,
"God is love," proclaims the sunshine,
As it warms another day.
God is love, God is love,
All things tell us: "God is love."
Baby birds nest in the treetops,
Cuddled 'neath their Mama's wing,
As they snuggle ever closer,
"God is love," they sweetly sing.
God is love, God is love,
All things tell us: "God is love."
God Watches Over Us (Trust: confidence,
faithfulness, peacefulness, reverence, trust)
When we awaken,
And when we are sleeping,
God watches over us
Ev'ry night and day.
With us abiding,
God our path is guiding,
In Thee confiding
Let us trust always.
God's Gifts (Confidence: faithfulness,
peacefulness, reverence, thankfulness,
trust)
Words By: Charles Ellerton
Music attributed to W.A. Mozart
There's a sun for the morning,
And a moon to shine at night;
Even when the moon is hiding,
All the stars still twinkle bright.
There is fruit in the orchard,
There is grain to bake the bread,
Through His bounty and His blessings,
God supplies our every need.
Through stormy days of winter,
Still the snowbirds all will sing;
They know that the blossoms
Will appear again in Spring.
Light and warmth, joy and beauty,
Come from God so high above;
And He gives us all these good gifts
From His heart so full of love.
God's Little Garden (Courtesy: kindness,
peacefulness, service)
Words and Music By: Eleanor Smith
My heart is God's little garden,
And the fruits I will bear each day,
Are the good deeds that He'll see me doing,
And the kind words He'll hear me say.

To have others do to me.

I'll keep it in ev'ry way!
Oh, I will keep this Golden Rule,
This rule that teaches me,
To do to others as I would love
To have others do to me.
Grey Owl (Reverence: patience, selfdiscipline) Goes with Owl Moon
Written By: Alice C. D. Riley
Music By: Jessie L. Gaynor
The old, grey owl in daytime
Sits there very, very still.
He doesn't wink his eyes at me
Or open up his bill.
He puffs out all his feathers
Till he looks quite round and fat.
His eyes have slits of yellow
That remind me of a cat.
But when the dusk comes falling
Then the owl will glare at you.
Oh! Listen to him calling!
"Hoo-whoo! Hoo-whoo! Hoo-whoo!"

If God so loves the little birds,
I know He loves me, too.

I know He loves me well.
He loves me, too,
He loves me, too,
I know He loves me, too!
Because He loves the little things,
I know He loves me, too.

Seed book (Trust: courage)

German Folksong
"Come away," sang the river,
To the leaves on the tree;

So the world you may see."

From the tree on the shore,
And they sailed down that river,
To return never more.
Let Laughter Be Your Song (Joyfulness:
flexibility)
Words and Music By: Alice Larry
Woodcock
Come, chase away your sadness,
Chase sadness with a smile,
And soon the clouds will disappear,
Just wait a little while.
It isn't very funny,
When everything goes wrong,
But maybe you'll feel better,
If you can sing along
With Hah! Hah! Hah!
(Hah! Hah!)
When everything goes wrong,
(Hah! Hah!)
With Hah! Hah! Hah!
(Hah! Hah!)
Let laughter be your song.
(Hah! Hah!)
With Hah! Hah! Hah!
(Hah! Hah!)
Its joyful notes to greet,
(Hah! Hah!)
Come laugh,
(Hah! Hah!)
And sing,
(Hah! Hah!)
Come laugh and make life's living sweet!
Through laughter, loads get lighter,
The 'long way' seems more short,
So tune your laughter to a song
And let the world take part!
As sunbeams chase the shadows,
And drive the dark away,
Just fill your heart with laughter
To make a better day.
With Hah! Hah! Hah!
(Hah! Hah!)
When everything goes wrong,
(Hah! Hah!)
With Hah! Hah! Hah!
(Hah! Hah!)
Let laughter be your song.

Little By Little (Idealism: purposefulness,

Words By: Edith S. Tillotson
Music By: Charles H. Maskell
Little by little, and one by one,
The greatest deeds in the world are done!
Moment by moment, the longest day
Goes drifting by in its tireless way.
Slowly, slowly, as the time goes by,
Surely, surely, as the moments fly,
Little by little, come what may,
Get started making your mark today!
Little by little, and bit by bit,
We store up knowledge, or fame, or wit.
Moment by moment, the sun appears
To build the span of the countless years.
Slowly, slowly, as the time goes by,
Surely, surely, as the moments fly,
Little by little, come what may,
Get started making your mark today!
Little by little, and day by day,
We learn life's lessons along the way.
Moment by moment, a word unknown
In time, into a new song has grown.
Slowly, slowly, as the time goes by,
Surely, surely, as the moments fly,
Little by little, come what may,
Get started making your mark today!

From the Play "The Minstrel of Clare"
Written By: Chauncey Olcott
Yes love remains the same,
Yes love remains the same,
When Daddy can't take me to the zoo,
You'll never hear me cry.
I ask Mom to drive me to the store,
And this is what I buy:
A camel with a great big hump,
A rhino and kangaroo,
A tiger, a lion,
A bear and a wolf,
A monkey and elephant, too.
And then I'm happy all the day
As I munch my cracker zoo!
Never To Be Late (Self-discipline:
determination, excellence, purposefulness,
reliability, responsibility)
Words and Music By: W.B. Bradbury
I'll awake at dawn
On an autumn day,
For I will not doze
Precious time away;
With my lesson learned,
This shall be my rule:
Never to be late
When I go to school!
Birds awake each morn,
And they start to sing;
None are tardy then,
When the woods do ring;
So when daylight peeps,
I'll recall my rule:
Never to be late
When I go to school!
19 of 26
When the spring's bright sun
Wakes the flow'rs again,
They are quick to stir,
None are tardy then;
And I won't forget
That it is my rule:
Never to be late
When I go to school!
Oh, these precious days
Will too soon be o'er,
And these happy hours
Will return no more;
Then I'll be so proud
That it was my rule:
Never to be late
When I went to school!
Over in the Meadow (Obedience: respect,

Traditional
Written By: Olive A. Wadsworth (1800s)

Over in the meadow,
In the sand in the sun
Lived an old mother toadie
And her little toadie one
"Wink!" said the mother;
"I wink!" said the one,
So they winked and they blinked
In the sand in the sun
Over in the meadow,
Where the stream runs blue
Lived an old mother fish
And her little fishes two
"Swim!" said the mother;
"We swim!" said the two,
So they swam and they leaped
Where the stream runs blue
Over in the meadow,
In a hole in a tree
Lived an old mother bluebird
And her little birdies three
"Sing!" said the mother;
"We sing!" said the three
So they sang and were glad
In a hole in the tree
Over in the meadow,
In the reeds on the shore
Lived an old mother muskrat
And her little ratties four
"Dive!" said the mother;
"We dive!" said the four
So they dived and they burrowed
In the reeds on the shore
Over in the meadow,
In a snug beehive
Lived a mother honey bee
And her little bees five
"Buzz!" said the mother;
"We buzz!" said the five
So they buzzed and they hummed
In the snug beehive
Over in the meadow,
In a nest built of sticks
Lived a black mother crow
And her little crows six
"Caw!" said the mother;
"We caw!" said the six
So they cawed and they called
In their nest built of sticks
Over in the meadow,
Where the grass is so even
Lived a gay mother cricket
And her little crickets seven
"Chirp!" said the mother;
"We chirp!" said the seven
So they chirped cheery notes
In the grass soft and even
Over in the meadow,
By the old mossy gate
Lived a brown mother lizard
And her little lizards eight
20 of 26
"Bask!" said the mother;
"We bask!" said the eight
So they basked in the sun
On the old mossy gate
For your peanut, peanut butter
And jelly
Peanut, peanut butter
And jelly
Over in the meadow,
Where the quiet pools shine
Lived a green mother frog
And her little froggies nine
"Croak!" said the mother;
"We croak!" said the nine
So they croaked and they splashed
Where the quiet pools shine
Then you take the grapes
And you squish 'em,
You squish 'em
Then you take the grapes
And you squish 'em,
You squish 'em
Over in the meadow,
In a sly little den
Lived a gray mother spider
And her little spiders ten
"Spin!" said the mother;
"We spin!" said the ten
So they spun lacy webs
In their sly little den

Somebody kept a frown on their face,

Somebody helped their Mom or their Dad,
Somebody walked away from a fight,
Somebody chose the path that was right.

Tell me why the stars do shine,
Tell me why the ivy twines,

Because God made the ivy twine,
Because God made the sky so blue,
Because God made you, that's why I love
you.
I really think that dear God above
Created you just for me to love;
He picked you out from all the rest
Because he knew that I'd love you the best.

The world is full of gladness,
The world is full of song;

The rains may rise above us,
But they won't stay for long.
This world is what we make it,
So let us all be glad;
There's beauty all around us,
No reason to be sad!
Though clouds may loom above us,
And troubles fall like rain,
The sun will shine above them,
And make things bright again.
This world is what we make it,
So let us all be glad;
There's beauty all around us,
No reason to be sad!
So cheer the heavy-hearted,
And raise a fallen friend;
Give each task your best effort,
Until you reach the end.
This world is what we make it,
So let us all be glad;
There's beauty all around us,
No reason to be sad!
The Three Little Pigs (Excellence)
English Nursery Song
Written By: Carolyn Sherwin Bailey
There was a little pig,
And he built himself a house,
For the Wolf was eating
Every pig he saw, saw, saw.
With a huff and then a puff,
Old Wolf ate him soon enough,
For the silly pig had built his house
With straw, straw, straw.
A second little pig,
Built himself a little house,
When he heard the Wolf was
Eating all the pigs, pigs, pigs,
With a huff and then a puff,
Old Wolf ate him soon enough,
For the silly pig had built his house
With twigs, twigs, twigs.
Another little pig,
Built himself a little house,
But he never thought of
Using straw or sticks, sticks, sticks,
With a huff and then a puff,
Old Wolf blew, but not enough,
For this pig got wise and built his house
With bricks, bricks, bricks.
Try, Try Again (Courage: determination,
flexibility, purposefulness)
Scotch Tune
It's a lesson all should heed,
Try, try, try again;
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try, try again;
Then your courage will appear,
If you only persevere,
You will conquer, never fear!
Try, try, try again.
Two or three times you should fail,
Try, try, try again;
If at last you would prevail,
Try, try, try again;
When you try it's no disgrace
If you fail to win the race,
Bravely, then, in such a case
Try, try, try again.

The Violet (Modesty: humility)
Old English
Written By: Jane Taylor (1783-1824)
Music Ascribed To: Dr. H. Harrington
(1727-1816)
Down in a green and shady bed,
A modest violet grew;
Its stalk was bent, it hung its head
As if to hide from view.
And yet it was a lovely flow'r,
Its colors bright and fair,
It might have graced a rosy bow'r
Instead of hiding there.
Yet there it was content to bloom,
In modest tints arrayed;
And there it spread its sweet perfume
Within the silent shade,
Then let me to the valley go,
This pretty flow'r to see,
That I may also learn to grow
In sweet humility.

We'll all turn 'round together,
We'll all turn 'round together,
And sing a song or two.
We'll all stand still together,
We'll all stand still together,
We'll all stand still together,
And sing a song or two.
We'll all sit down together,
We'll all sit down together,
We'll all sit down together,
And sing a song or two.
We'll all be quiet together,
We'll all be quiet together,
We'll all be quiet together,
Now singing time is through.
When the Band Begins to Play (Joyfulness)
Written By: Alice C.D. Riley
Music By: Jessie L. Gaynor
When the band begins to play,
"Tum Tum! Tum Tum Tum Tum!"
With rolling of the drum,
Then my feet begin to move,
And my fingers start to strum,
And my heart begins to beat,
"Pum Pum Pum Pum!"
How I love the little flute,
"Toot Toot! Toot Toot Toot Toot!"
The jolly little flute! Oh!
My feet just want to
March in step all day,
When the band, the band, the band
Begins to play.
We'll all join hands together,
We'll all join hands together,
We'll all join hands together,

Who Will Try? (Trust: confidence,
idealism, thankfulness)
Words and Music By: Edith Sanford
Tillotson
Who will try to be a sunbeam
When the sky is gray?
Who will spread a little sunshine
On a rainy day?
I will try, I will try,
While the clouds are in the sky,
I will try to be a sunbeam
On a rainy day!
Who will try to count their blessings
When the sky is gray?
Who will find the silver lining
In a rainy day?
I will try, I will try,
While the clouds are in the sky,
I will try to count my blessings
On a rainy day!
Who will try to chase off shadows
When the sky is gray?
Who will thank the Lord (God) for sending
Us a rainy day?
I will try, I will try,
While the clouds are in the sky,
I will try to chase off shadows
On a rainy day!
