kindness to the poor (take 2)

Today’s lesson: kindness to the poor.

November 1, 2008: 1.5 hrs, 3 kids: 9, 9, 5.  Revived the poverty card game from previous years. it was a hit, just like last time. this time, was able to make them a bit nicer (backed the printouts with card stock); still, was a little hectic–didn’t have same amounts of each six “essentials”; took a while to figure it out for the game.  the kids didn’t mind though, because they just kept on playing it and loving it. made for quite a few good conversation points, and we discussed lots of the concepts behind the elimination of the extremes of wealth and poverty. had lots of help, especially considering the fewness of the kids who came. the rest must have been sick from eating all the halloween candy, dunno.  All in all, a good class, even though I overshot our time a little and ended up having no time to work on the craft I had planned (masks, for Unity in Diversity week that comes in two weeks).

  1. Hi, your blog is just wonderful and I’m so excited that i just found it! I’m a Baha’i and an artist. Although I’ve had a website for many years, I recently got interested in the world of blogging and began blogging about living the creative life one day at a time…….I have been working creatively with diverse groups of people for over 20 years. One of the goals of my blog is to post tutorials for artistic activities that are inspired by Baha’i Principles. The first one was posted yesterday: The Garden of Humanity Bouquet. I would be happy to link your site to mine 🙂 warmest regards, victoria
