Building Good Character: Level B This course for five- to seven-year-olds includes 30 full-color character-building cards covering five topics: Respect, Attitude, Church Manners, Charity at Table, and Virtue, as well as an illustrated chore chart (“Learning Responsibility through Chores”). Although designed for weekly presentation, as much time as desired may be spent on a particular card before moving on to another. Note that cards need not be introduced in order. For example, if a child is struggling with honesty, use the Table of Contents to select the “Honesty” card. Similarly, the “Charity at Table” cards are ideal preparation for a family get-together.
