Patty Thompson, who runs the Shiver Academy Blog, has just completed a wonderful, HUGE project — a Unit Study Companion for the Book of Virtues by William J. Bennett, especially for homeschoolers. Each unit covers 10 of the stories/poems/essays that are included in the Book of Virtues. Each story has worksheets, notebook pages, vocabulary, character study sheets, copywork, 1-2 projects (plus a long-term project) and a Lapbook with an optional unit wrap up activity. And to top it off a full lesson plan for older kids, and a separate one for primary aged children.
The full Study is a whopping 992 pages long (!) and the download is quite large (18.93 MB) – but Patty also has links to individual units available if you just want to download them one at a time. Each unit is roughly 100 pages, but it is not required to DO all those pages. For instance, if you do the worksheets you probably shouldn’t worry about the notebook pages. If your children are young, you probably should skip the projects. If they are really young, just do the wrap up after reading the stories. In short, tweak the materials to fit your family’s needs.
Go here to join the homeschool freebie email list and have the opportunity to download your free copy of this study resource.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review that you gave. It means a lot to me that people are sharing information on my study. 🙂 There have been over 10,000 downloads now!! And it’s all because of people like you who have passed it on! I find that to be simply amazing! 🙂
Just so you know, Shiver Academy has just had a face-lift as our host has just had a huge upgrade. It’s now a bit more user friendly and you can get to my comments on each unit now with just a few clicks. Love to have you stop on by!! 🙂
My pleasure Patty. 🙂
I completed a google search for a study to accompany the book of virtues by william bennett and this link showed up. From what I can tell this resource would be perfect. Is there someway I could obtain a link to this study to use with my daughter?
Gail, in the post you read, you need to click on the blue words “Go here” which are a live link to that website offering the download. Thanks. 🙂
I forgot to mention that when I click on the link you referred to, I get a page not found error.
That likely means the freebie has expired. Many from that site are temporarily offered…and it was 3 years ago. 😦 So sorry! Join my homeschooling page if you are on Facebook, and you’ll get tips on lots of goodies. It is called Schoolin’ Swag. 🙂
