Teaching Values

I really try to work on my kiddos with being kind and compassionate.  One thing I try to do every day is to show a video that works on manners and values.  There's a great website Values.com  that has various short clips, like commercials, that show manners and values.  My kids love them and we do a quick discussion about them now.  In the future, my hope is to have the kids respond in writing about them, but they are such little tikes still that I don't want to overwhelm them with too much morning work.  We watch them right after we get all our things put away in the morning and before they start their morning work or reading time.

I would love to try to link a video so you could see one, but I'm not quite sure how to do it if it's not on you tube....but if you go the to website you can see them all.  They are all short and sweet and have a great message.
