I grew up learning about character qualities, and I feel that this emphasis on character really helped to shape me into the person I am today.

That is why I got together with my sister (a veteran homeschool mom) to put together a new series of studies on character.

I have to give credit where credit is due – she put these studies together and I made them pretty.

Meet my sister:

Bonnie Dučić is a veteran homeschooling mom with 9+ years of experience. She has homeschooled all 4 of her bilingual children and loves helping others find joy in raising and schooling their own children. She also enjoys writing music and serving with her Croatian husband in his calling as senior pastor of Church of the Full Gospel in Zagreb, Croatia.

Simple Character Study – Responsibility

My goal with these Simple Character Studies is to provide a curriculum of studies to do with your kids for the whole school year.

Each Character Study includes 4 weeks of daily lessons that include a Bible story, memory verse, character definition, art projects, games, nature studies, books, and other projects that all work together to help your children clearly understand each quality.

In these lessons, they will learn the benefits these character qualities bring to us and others, and the consequences that occur when we do not have these character traits in our lives.

Now, here is the unit study. You can get this unit study in a set of 4-week lesson plans by going here.

Memory Verses:

He who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little thing is also dishonest in much. Luke 16:10

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy. Proverbs 28:13

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. 2 Corinthians 5:10

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23


Using a poster board and craft sticks, make a chore pocket chart. Add pockets for each child to the poster board with the words “Chores” and “Done”. On the craft sticks, write various chores they are responsible for each day. When they’ve completed their chores, they can move the craft stick from their “Chore” pocket to the “Done” pocket.
