Frequently Asked Questions

Character English is a character-building education program for kindergarten and lower elementary school children. Research has shown that many of our character strengths are formed during the early childhood period. Hence, it is crucial to start instilling character education early.

Since many of the Character Strengths are new concepts for young children, the first step is to have a general vocabulary for learning. That is why we have based our character education on the letters of the alphabet. For each new character strength, we begin with an overview and warm-up activities to get students excited about the program and stimulate thinking about the theme. Vocabulary is then introduced through word game activities, followed by songs and stories of the animal or plant themed on the Character Strength.

Our program uses a thematic learning approach with a breadth of content that spans across the STREAM education subject areas (science, technology, reading and writing, engineering, arts, mathematics), and much more. The lessons incorporate a range of multimodal learning experiences using visual, auditory, reading and writing, and kinesthetic activities.

The interdisciplinary learning proceeds with activities that incorporate content from various subject areas (including science, technology, English language, engineering, art and craft, mathematics, history, geography, culture, and more) to further consolidate creative and critical learning.

The final wrap-up summarizes the lessons and invites reflection and planning of the subsequent steps for personal growth.

Our program is flexible and can be taught as one-to-one instruction or as a class in a variety of educational settings. Character English is ideal for homeschools, school assemblies, after-school programs, holiday workshops or camps, or as a resource for parents to use with their children.

Character Education Curriculum

Each A-Z Character Strength comes with its curriculum manual at two levels, for kindergarten and for elementary school children. You can select and start with any individual Character Strengths to learn, or you may proceed alphabetically from Adaptability to Zeal.

Real-World Nature Stories

The Character English program uses real-world scientific observations of animals and plants in nature. The behaviors of animals and plants in response to challenges can teach us valuable character lessons. Each story is fact-checked and is not from myths or made-up tales.

Interdisciplinary Thematic Learning

We use a thematic approach, and the breadth of our content spans across the STREAM education subject areas and more. The emphasis is on inquiry-based and authentic learning in real-world contexts to discuss age-appropriate personal applications by the children.
