Virtue Centers create a practical, visual focal point for the most important thing we do as educators: forming students to be lifelong disciples.
We have several downloads to help you create a virtue center in your classroom. Check out the downloads below for the Virtue of the Week and Classroom Expectations Printables used in this teacher’s classroom.
Using a pocket chart makes it easy to swap out the virtue on a weekly basis. As part of her morning routine, this teacher has the students come up with their own looks-like / sounds like illustration for the virtue of the week.
A simple display? A centerpiece for discussion at morning meeting? A positive incentive to practice virtuous behavior? Virtue centers can be all this and more!
This middle school teacher has incorporated some of these materials into her Virtue Steps. Students move their name up a step when she recognizes them for practicing a virtue. When they get to the top, they earn a point toward a whole classroom reward.
