Who is my family?

Class suggested being suitable for: Kindergarten (5 to 6 years old).

First: Opening prayer - The Spiritist Volunteer will ask one child to read one topic of the “The Lord’s Prayer”.

The Spiritist worker will introduce a box of prayer after the prayer and will ask for one child to volunteer himself/herself to read the prayer for the class. Please ask the child to say his/her words as well, as to complement the opening prayer.   ...>>

Second: Welcome the children into the session. Say how happy we are to see them there and how important they are for the class. Sing songs together; get the children to remain standing but in a circle.

Third: Family introduction

The Spiritist Volunteer will start explaining that God created human beings, animals and plants. Hence, there are different family types of human beings, animals and plants. People who are from the same family usually live in the same house, but it could be that they live in separate houses. This could be the case when parents split up/get divorced or children grow up and decide to live on their own, away from their parents; or with their husbands, wives and/or children.

Parents or Carers are part of our family, as well as our grandparents. The number of members in our family could also increase with the birth of new children into the family (brother/s and/or sister/s) or when someone else comes and lives with us, such as an aunt or cousin.

The spiritist teacher could take to this class pictures that enable the children to see the different types of family groups that exist in the world: human beings, plants and animals.

Everyone learn from living together as a group, despite the differences. Each member of the family plays an important role. Every member should encourage other members to respect and unite themselves, and love God. This can be achieved through loving attitudes, education and good feelings towards one another. Our home is the place where we learn many important things that will be useful to us through all our lives, as well as on future reincarnations.

Fourth: Suggested Videos to be shown to the children 
BodhaGuru Learning proudly presents an animated Science video in English for children, which explains what family is and why we need family. It elaborates importance of family and types of family like Joint family, Nuclear family.


Fifth: Prepare our family glove activity


Sixth: The Parable of Prodigal Son
The Spiritist Volunteer will explain that our mum and dad have been chosen by God to take care of us, to teach us goodness and help us during our physical life.

Seventh: Activity - The prodigal Son parable: get the children to tell the story back to the group as they understood it (please note these pictures have been taken from the internet)

Eighth: Healing Theatre - Prepare the kids for the healing time. Put one chair at the centre of the room and ask one child of each time to seat on the chair and show how he/she would be behaving upstairs.

Ninth: Preparation for closing prayer - Kids should choose a passage from the: Gospel According to the Spiritism for the kids, The Spirits Book for kids or the Heaven or Hell. The volunteer will encourage the others kids to volunteer themselves for reading and give a quickly comment about it.

Tenth: Closing prayer - One of the children will do a closing prayer; encourage the children to volunteer for this task. If they don’t want to collaborate we could say we will follow the letters of the alphabet. The child’s name that starts with the letter A will do the opening prayer this time. Everybody will have the chance to collaborate.
