The best way to help students develop the character qualities essential for success in school and in life is to acknowledge them when you see them demonstrated. The 52 virtues appreciation cards can be given to students, colleagues, parents and others to acknowledge when they have demonstrated character traits such as kindness, generosity, diligence, respect, responsibility, compassion and many more.
Each card has the virtue, its definition and an inspiring quote, as well as space to write a personalized acknowledgement. In addition to using these as appreciation cards, they can be used as a way to invite students to have a deeper understanding of each virtue and as an invitation to put the virtues into practice.
These cards are great to use as a way to enhance your PBIS , character development and social and emotional learning programs. You could even choose a virtue a week to focus on as a mini lesson during your class meetings. They are also a great resource to use with colleagues and at home with your own family.
