Posts on Bess Lesson Plans

If you are keen to access my Baha’i Education lesson plans let me know who you are and how you are using them and I will send you a password to those posts.  As I sometimes reflect on the lessons I decided that I would require this for people wishing to read them, but I do like to share them and notice I have many visits from people looking for lesson plans.  There are some great sites in my links you will enjoy accessing, so don’t forget to look down the side of the site.

Within my posts I often put other links that I have found useful.  I may do a public reflection post on the whole year to share- a kind of summary so look out for that one.  My latest resource purchase has been a series of Anticolouring books, which are useful for all sorts of teaching projects, art, maths, imaginative thinking, and spiritual education.  I must review that and recommend them to you! I was so excited to look through them as I ordered them on line.

email junepaisaATyahoo.com.au  (at symbol, I put it this way to avoid spam if I can)
and just introduce yourself and let me know how you are putting my lesson plans and reflections to use.

By the way many of my lesson plans are of course based on the Ruhi Resources, or on the Peace Pack series, but I do like all teachers, adapt and collect additional resources, like stories, games, black line masters, and a method of delivering the classes that suits my students – and I am also writing original songs for my students to learn on themes like Thankfulness etc.

  4. Hello Nandita – are you working with Ruhi Book 3a grade 1- there is a really good site, it should be in my links for ruhi books. I’ll just check.

  5. Okay Nandita I read your question and maybe you can think of times when children have to find unity and harmony with people who may be different from them, it could be in their own family, at school or with their neigbours.

    Looking closely at that story from Abdul-Baha who used love and wisdom to create unity, has there been any time in the children’s lives in which they could do that- think of a concrete example suitable for their age…

    Maybe even you could use the image in the writings of unity in diversity like a garden and they would at that age relate to that quite well- ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO HELP NANDITA OUT POST HERE.

  10. Hi Pearlz,

    I have been actively seeking for material that I can use with my little one at home (3yo) and would love to share what I find with our local community Bahai children’s classes. I am originally from Malaysia, married to an American and currently reside in Columbia, MO I homepreschool my little guy and wished so much to incorporate studies of our Faith into his home curriculum. If you would care to share, I would be perpetually grateful.

    With kindest regards,
    Phebe

  11. Hi,

    Allah’u’Abha!

    I was just doing a google search and came across your site! Was wondering if I could get the password to use the Baha’i Education lesson plans. A few youth and young adults in my community in Melbourne decided to come up with lesson plans for the year to provide to teachers for the school we have BEC at. It would be great if we had something to use as a foundation and guide. I’m also pooling from other resources – the more the merrier.

    With thanks and regards,
    Adeline

    I have emailed you and I wish you well with your blessed endeavour, please send me an email to let me know how you are going, maybe you and any of the other teachers can tell me how your classes are going and we can post a story here for others to read.

    I hope all the materials are useful to you.

  15. Hi June,

    I am Baha’i – live at Narrabeen in Sydney. You may remember me – have met you but a long time ago. Your blog was recommended to me by another friend – it looks like it is really useful and helpful. Thank you for all your energy and creativity! Please send me the password to your lesson plans.

    On another matter. I am doing an assignment for a Post Grad diploma (Information Science). Assignment is about proposal for development of an online community site – using online technologies such as blogs, wikis, forums, etc. Am interested in the idea of some sort of site where Baha’is can share their ideas for BESS / SRE teaching, teaching children (in general) junior youth education, etc – like you do – but which has ability to have blogs, wikis &/or forums – or people can just look/lurk and download material – also, share links to established sites like yours.

    You could reply to me privately by email, if you prefer?

  16. Dear Bahai friends,

    Alláh’u’abhá! A few months ago I was desperately seeking some new and fun curriculum to engage the children in my class here in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. I could not find anything that suited me and ended up creating my own curriculum. My class has grown from 5 bored kids to 24 excited children who can’t wait to come to class (and it is not just them—I am also having a lot of fun).

    Essentially the idea is that we create a new country (we called our country “Unitaria”) and we all play the part of a Baha’i pioneer from another land. For example one child chose the identity “Oliver Oken, Musician from Canada, age 23 years”. Another child chose the identity “Jet Li, King Fu Master from China, age 28 years”. We started out the year by “building” our own Bahai Center, making a sign and electing our LSA. Every so often we invite people from “other countries” to come to our class and give a talk on a particular topic.

    We are having so much fun and really enjoying our class and I want to share this with other teachers. The curriculum is for 50 weeks and of course would need to be adjusted according to the time that class starts.

    I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY CURRICULUM WITH YOU—HOW CAN I DO THAT?

    Warm regards

    Brooke
