Learn how to raise compassionate kids & build Christian character with the Generous Students Homeschool Curriculum Kit.
Picture this – you’re at the park with your kids. They’re running around laughing and playing with their neighborhood pals. While you and your friend are sitting on the bench chatting, you can’t help but notice the new girl who just moved in down the street. She’s by herself, watching the other kids having fun. You feel sorry for her as you remember just how cruel kids can be. How cruel they were to you as a kid.
I received this product free of charge for review purposes and was compensated for my time. All opinions expressed in this post are my own and I was not required to post a positive review of the product.
Then, you see your friend’s daughter walk over, introduce herself, and invite the new girl to play. Although you tell your friend that her daughter is so thoughtful, you secretly wish it was your daughter’s act of kindness that brought a beaming smile to the new girl’s face.
Everyone wants to have kind, thoughtful, compassionate kids. But, exactly how do you instill these qualities in your kiddos?
I can tell you from experience that it takes more than just saying “Be nice” or “Don’t be selfish!” Raising generous kids takes intentionality. We were born with sinful hearts, so kindness, selflessness, and compassion don’t usually come naturally! We must teach and train our kiddos to have generous hearts.
But, the question remains – how do you do this?
How to Build Christian Character
Created for the whole family ages 5-18, the Generous Students Homeschool Curriculum Kit invites us to embark on a journey that encourages us to think about every aspect of the world from a new perspective – generosity!
The “road trip” teaches kids the 7 Ways of Living Generously Framework:
Additional character development includes empathy, patience, forgiveness, respect, and more!
What’s Included in the Generous Students Curriculum:
Requiring little to no prep, the Generous Students Homeschool Curriculum Kit is great for character development, as a Bible curriculum, or to simply teach your kids about the joy of giving in a fun and engaging manner!
Use it during your devotional time. Incorporate it at dinnertime. Include it as part of your homeschool day! It’s just that flexible and easy to use!
The curriculum kit includes the items below:
- Instructor’s Guide – This spiral-bound handbook contains everything you need to teach the lessons!
- 3 Student Journals – As each student journeys along the Generosity Road Trip, they will create a keepsake journal.
- Generosity Heroes Book – This contains stories about amazing people who have displayed great generosity. Some of the heroes included are Corrie Ten Boom, Tim Tebow, Gideon, Harriet Tubman, Jesus Christ, and YOU!
- Sticker Sheets
Plus, you have access to the Instructor Portal. This is one of my favorite parts of the curriculum! It’s full of videos and audio files for each of the 24 lessons plus additional activities, parent resources, printables, and more!
How to Use the Generous Students Curriculum
The Generous Students Homeschool Curriculum Kit follows this weekly layout:
- Day 1 – Intro Lesson with a Journal Activity & a Bible Rest Stop
- Day 2 – Devotion & “Live It Out” opportunities
- Day 3 – A story about a biblical, historical, or everyday Generosity Hero & a thought-provoking Q&A Rest Stop
- Days 4 & 5 – Extracurricular Activities, Games, Videos, Lessons, Music & a Library Stop
I love the consistency and creativity of the curriculum. While each week follows the same general schedule, each weekly lesson is full of thought-provoking insight and actionable ways to start living generously now!
It’s inspirational. Exciting. Purposeful. Intentional.
It’s just what I needed to help encourage more generosity in my children!
