Honest woodcutter - Animated English Nursery Story

Why choose honesty?

Should we be honest only because we are going to get something in return?


What if the consequences of choosing honesty are not nice? (punishment/people getting angry/etc.)--> What are the subtle consequences? -- Though we may not like the consequences, Amma sees our efforts!

Choosing to convey the truth in a straightforward and humble manner.

Speak what is true. Speak what is pleasant. Speak no disagreeable truth, speak no agreeable falsehood

Amma loves everyone -- Let's be examples of Her love in the World. She asked all of us to watch our words and to practice kindness!

STICKS AND STONES...
1. Provide each child with a small paper cutout in the shape of a human-- or have students cut out their own paper figures.
2. Ask each student to write his or her name on the cutout.
3. Have students form a circle; have them pass the cutouts to the person on their right.
4. As the cutouts are passed around the circle, have each person make a small crumple or tear in the cutout and add a pencil mark.
5. When the cutouts have made their way around the entire circle, have students try to repair their own cutouts by flattening, erasing, and taping.
6. After cutouts are repaired, discuss the activity. Talk about the effects of unkind words and hurt feelings.

You might display the cutouts on a bulletin board as a constant reminder of the effects of hurtful actions.

TOOTH PASTE AND WORDS... A teaching lesson

During the first weeks of the new school year, purchase travel size toothpaste and bring it to school. (If you're well into the school year-and you're experienceing a 'kindness challenge', also consider this exercise)

Ask the kids if anyone thinks they can squeeze the entire tube of paste out... and then put it back into the tube?
No one will think they can...Proceed to squeeze the entire tube onto a paper plate and show how it cannot be put back in.

Compare it to our words and how we treat one another. Kids will get the visual of how once we say unkind words... we can't take them back. We can apologize but it's still out there and has hurt our friends.

This is a wonderful visual; refer back to it throughout the year.

Smiling -- a Poem


Smiling is infectious; you catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.
I passed around a corner and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled, I realized I had passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile and then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine, could travel around the earth.
So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick and get the world infected.

Kid President Upgrades the World!

Reflection

For the next 60 seconds sit silently and think about the 5 things Amma recommended we do.....


Reflect on:

  1. Which ones can I fully commit to doing?
  2. Which ones will I have difficulty doing?
  3. If I had to pick just one, which one could I do well?
  4. Try to prioritize them from easiest to do to the hardest to do.
  5. Decide on which one(s) you will work on this year.
  6. Silently, pray to Amma to help you in your efforts to accomplish the thing(s) you chose

Your 60 seconds starts NOW!
