If your students like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia, they are going to love the updated Free the Horses program. Use this action-packed video story to teach children ages 5 to 9 to believe in themselves, their talents, and their dreams.
Let the adventure begin!
In Free the Horses, Kelly sets out on a quest to free some wild horses from captivity. Along the way, she and the colorful friends she meets learn to handle problems in a positive and courageous way.
Why a program on character education for children?
Children who develop responsibility, cooperation, courage and other traits of good character have fewer behavioral problems and more success when facing life’s challenges. There’s even research to prove it!
Classes are easy to teach.
Free the Horses is divided into 11 video and discussion lessons, designed to last 30–45 minutes each, with 9 optional lessons for reinforcement. The Teacher’s Guide gives you step-by-step instructions on when to show the video and when to stop for discussion and class activities.
Interactive and fun
Give each student a Kid’s Character Pack (activity book + 12 stickers) to reinforce the important lessons. Use the set of 11 Color-In Posters to let students decorate the classroom with their newfound character knowledge.
