We have sold out of all the sets of Character Classics. However, if you have the sets and need the Teacher Resource Guides that have all the words to all the songs of the whole sets as well as activities on different grade levels to do as you study these units, we do have some of those left in our inventory. These are out of print so we can't get them any more."
Character Classics is a book and CD series that combines well-known classical melodies with entertaining character-building lyrics to give children a basic foundation for character education and story books to help teach children the importance of positive values. The CDs feature new character education lyrics performed over music by Beethoven, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Mozart etc. Each book illustrates one of the songs and uses the lyrics as its text, and children can read or sing along. The lyrics for all of the songs on the CD appear at the end of each book. Help children learn and remember lessons about character traits with these book and music combinations! The character traits are: attentiveness, contentment, dependability, goodness, kindness, obedience, self-control, patience, perseverance, respect, thankfulness, and truthfulness.
Here are a few song samples from four of the albums.
“Little Larry” (Attentiveness)
“Captain Kind” (Kindness)
“Tell the Truth” (Truthfulness)
“Self-Control to the Rescue” (Self-Control)
