You can be kind at school by being obedient, helpful and attentive to your teachers, by being friendly with your classmates.

You can be kind to animals and plants in many ways like petting and feeding animals, planting saplings and watering plants, making a bird bath and table to feed birds.

The Prophet’s love

Every morning a spiteful woman used to throw garbage from her house on Prophet Mohammed as he passed by. The Prophet would go by without any reaction. She did this for many days.

One day, as he went past, the garbage did not come down on him as it usually did. He was worried about this. He went into the house from where the rubbish used to be thrown at him. He found a woman lying alone. She was very ill. He fetched a doctor at once. He helped her sit up and receive the doctor’s treatment. She bowed to him and wept, begging for forgiveness. His kindness to her in return for her daily insults changed her completely. This is the power of kindness. It can make a person your best friend.

Period 15 – Neighbours

Who are neighbours? Neighbours are those who live near you. Next to your family it is your neighbours who areclosest to you. Love your neighbours also.

Learn to love the children living nearby. Respect elders who are your neighbours. Be kind and helpful to neighbours.

Do not disturb elders. They need rest and quiet. Never write on your neighbours’ walls, throw things into their houses or pluck flowers from their garden. Remember they love their homes as much as you love yours.

Veggie vengeance

There once lived a small princess but she was a fussy eater. “I hate vegetables so I won’t eat them!” she cried out every time salads and vegetables were served in her plate and she pushed the plate away. Her mother tried to change her food habits but could not succeed.

One night the princess slept but cauliflower could not. He was a big, healthy vegetable with large green leaves adorning his head and he lived in the larder of the palace kitchen. That night he was seething!

“I hate the princess! She always complains about us! I’ve got to teach her a lesson!” he cried out angrily.

Cauliflower found Bean beside him and nudged him awake. “Hey, Green Bean get up!” he shouted. Lean Bean jumped up with a start. “What’s up”, he murmured sleepily. “Go wake the other vegetables up!” ordered Cauliflower. We have some important work to do!” Bean briskly went about his task and found Potato in a basket and he woke him up along with White radish, his neighbour.

“Get up! Get up, sleepy heads! Yelled Green Bean and the noise woke Lady’s Finger and Spinach up. “What are you shouting for? Go away! Screamed Spinach but Bean appeased him by saying, “You have got to get up, friends. We will all run away.!”

Suddenly there was a flutter and a little fairy came flying into the kitchen through the open window.

“I can help you veggies,” said the little fairy and she took out a glistening scarf and turned it around thrice. And lo! The vegetables got a pair of wings each and they flew out of the palace towards a faraway mountain. They got into a cave and hid themselves.

The next morning the princess came down for breakfast and was surprised to see only rotis. There was no salad and vegetables in her plate. “I’m so happy there are no vegetables on my plate today. How come you haven’t given me any, mother?” she asked.

But there aren’t any vegetables in the larder. They’ve all disappeared sighed the queen. During lunch and dinner, the princess did not eat vegetables either and this continued for many more days until one morning the princess fell ill.

“What’s wrong with me?” she cried out in bewilderment.

“I’ll tell you what’s wrong!” said the mother, “You are becoming weak because you’re not eating vegetables! They are good sources of nutrients for your body.”

“I want to eat them mother!” moaned the princess. “Where are they?”

“I’m afraid they’ve all run away!” sighed the queen.

“Then call them back, mother, please!”cried the princess.

“But how?” asked the queen.

Suddenly there was a flutter of wings and the little fairy flew in through the window and whispered, “Relish your vegetables princess, and they will surely return! They all understand the language of love!”

“I’ll certainly do that for I now know how important they are for me. I’ll never curse them again. It’s a promise.”

The fairy took out her scarf and turned it around thrice. And lo! The vegetables came flying back into the palace and got into the larder never to go out again.

“Thank you veggies, you truly are important for me, for without you all, how can I ever grow up to become a queen?”

And from that day on, many healthy vegetables found themselves on the princess’s plate and were eaten by her with great regard and relish.

Period 11 – Love extends to school

School can be a fun-filled place. Be a good student – how can you be a good student? Your teachers work hard. They spend time with you. They help you to learn and grow up to be a fine person. Behave well in class. Listen to what teacher say. Obey them. It will make them happy. That is how you show your love to your teachers. Being a good student is not just getting good marks. No! It means dong your best in everything in school. To be a good student you also have to….

Come to school on time
Do your homework
Wear a neat and clean uniform

Be a good friend and make your schoolmates happy

Always be cheerful. When you are full of fun and cheer, you make your classmates happy too. When you look at each other smile. Never quarrel or fight over little things. Don’t hit each other or get angry. Ask your teacher for help. Whenever you feel angry with a friend tell yourself, “we love one another”. Can you be angry with someone you love? Now look at one another and say, “we love one another”. Feel happy when your friends do well in something. If there is a running race, everyone cannot win. You will win in something else. So when your friends win, you must clap and cheer. Being with friends make everyone happy. A good way to show your love to your friends is to help each other. If your friend is doing some-thing wrong you must correct him. Remember you can do more together than when you are alone.

The True Fiends

Once there were two friends – a squirrel and a puppy. They used to live and play together. The squirrel was very sporty and always won the game. The puppy used to feel bad and thought that it was of no use.One day, it started raining heavily. The squirrel was in high spirits. He started doing antics but suddenly, lost his balance and fell in the rain water. He called his friend, the puppy for help. The puppy came to his rescue. The squirrel climbed on its back and reached a safe place. He thanked his friend for saving his life.

Period 9 – How animals help us and what can we learn from them?

Animals help us in many ways. Guide dogs help blind people. They show them the way. Police dogs help policemen to find thieves. Elephants pull heavy logs of wood. Bullocks, horses, camels and donkeys carry things and pull carts. We can learn many good things from animals.

“Train your children from their earliest days to be infinitely tender and loving to animals.”

Today we are going to talk about kindness to animals. Have you a pet at home? How are you kind to your pet? How do you look after your pet? We need to make sure that our pet has food to eat, water to drink and a good place to sleep.

Some creatures are small and some are big, but we must be kind to them all. Some people do not understand that animals share the same feelings as we do. Animals get tired and need rest. They get thirsty and need water. They get hungry and need food.

They feel pain just like we do, yet some people beat animals. ‘Abdu’l-Baha said that it was worse to hurt animals than humans because the animals can’t cry out and they can’t complain. These are his words: “Show forth the utmost consideration to the animal, and . . . . be even kinder to him than to your fellow man. Train your children from their earliest days to be infinitely tender and loving to animals. If an animal is sick, let the children try to heal it, if it be hungry, let them feed it, if thirsty, let them quench its thirst, if weary, let them see that it rests.” 5

But we are warned to avoid harmful animals like wolves and snakes. This does not mean that we should harm them, but just let them go on their way. They too are God’s creation.

  • GROUP A (youngest children)
  • Let the children draw animals they know or animals of their own creation, for example monsters, fluffy creatures or dinosaurs.
  • GROUPS B and C (older children) “Animal Consequences”

Sit the children in a circle, and give each child a strip of paper about 50X200 cm. and a pencil. Each child should draw an animal head and neck, at the top of their paper and fold the paper over so that only the neck shows. When all the children are finished tell them to pass the paper to the child on their left. Now draw a body attached to the neck and draw the tops of some legs. Fold the paper over so that only the legs show. Pass to the left. Draw some feet onto the legs and then pass to the left. Now all open the papers and see what funny animals you have drawn. If there is time, repeat, with children drawing differently from the first time.

  • Give each child a piece of paper and suggest that they have been given a pet dog. Get the children to write down how would they look after it and draw pictures of their favourite animals.

Period 10 – Knowledge / Wisdom

  • Saraswati is the Vakshakti i.e the urge to express the Harmony, beauty and Melody in creation through the medium of language, music, dance art or sculpture. She is the Vidyashakti i.e. the Power to illumine the outer and inner universe of man.

To attain a full life, man must master two field of knowledge of the manifested universe and knowledge of the consciousness that pervades and validates the universe. One gives him the right and authority to engage in profession to earn a living, and the other teaches the mode and manner of right living. One confers the skill and intelligence, wealth status and position; the other impels man to dedicate these to the progress of other. Thus, we see that Saraswati promotes the Satwic Guna in an individual. Saraswati confers on the educated man, the power of discrimination. She converts the thoughts and words into speech. Thus, the child develops a healthy respect for his studies for his school and his teachers. He also becomes aware of the necessity for cleanliness, neatness and tidiness.

Period 8 – Trees

Can be taken as experiential learning

Let us consider the parts of tree – the trunk, leaves, branches, buds, flowers and fruits.
Different ways in which tree helps us

  • Trees give us oxygen to breathe
  • Trees cool the areas around us
  • We get fruits, flowers and wood from trees
  • Trees give us shade
  • Trees provide homes for animals
  • Trees bring more rain

Each part of a tree is precious

  • Roots keep the soil fertile, retain water in the soil, are used for making medicines
  • Leaves give us oxygen we breathe, serve as food for cattle, make the soil rich after they fall to the ground, are used to make medicines
  • Flowers have nectar which is food for birds and insects, are useful in making medicines, perfumes and colours
  • Fruits provide food for people and animals and birds
  • Bark is used to make medicines, is used to make paintings
  • Twigs and branches are used as firewood
  • Remember Tree is just one part of nature.
  • How do we harm trees? Yet it always returns only kindness to us. If someone threw a stone at a tree, it gives you back fruit or flower or leaves.
  • Even though we chop it down cruelly, it gives us wood.
  • When a single tree is cut down many insects, birds and little animals become homeless. Also all the uses of that tree is lost to us.
  • When whole forests are cut down there will be fewer trees which means less rain and more heat. A green world will become brown world. A cool world will become a hot world. The water in the rivers and lakes will decrease and they will become dry.
  • What can you do? You must do something to save the earth. The world needs more trees. You can plant a sapling. If each child plants a sapling then there will be hundreds of trees more to make up for all the trees that Nature has lost.
  • Appreciate God’s creation – Chits of paper with names of various things created by God. Each child pick out a chit. It can be river, Tree, mountain, sun, cow, dog etc. Then child should think and say one reason why God created that object.
