Grades 1 to 4 all have free downloads available. If you have any to share, please let me know and I will add if possible.
All the lessons on the blog are from the Ruhi Book 3 curriculum, some materials are from other websites, and resources such as The Australian Peace Pack, and Brilliant Star magazine.
In my post today, I will share some of the content I developed for grade 3. This content is not on any other Baha’i children’s class site (yet) but you are most welcome to upload it to your site (please give the credit and link to this blog) To make your own unique resources check out my post on how I create my resources
Grade 3 contains SIXTEEN lessons, divided into THREE sets. The themes of the 3 sets are listed below, including three lessons.
- The Fundamental Concepts Related to the Manifestations of God
- The Lives and Missions of the Manifestations of God Who appeared before the Báb and Baha’u’llah
- The Life and Mission of the Báb
Each lesson is broken down into the following sections:
- Games / Narrative
- Crafts/ Activities
- Review of quotes from Grade 2
The prayer section contains the prayers to be memorized and any video content that may be available, as well any as memorization aids. I also created postcards that can be emailed or printed and sent to friends in your neighborhood, or far away to say “Hi, thinking of you” Download the free postcard from my Google Drive here
For memorization of the quote, each lesson has a worksheet to fill in the definitions of any words the student is not sure of, this is a great way to build a personal dictionary of words and keep them in the class notebook or lapbook.
This free worksheet can be downloaded here.
By the way, I WILL be going back and adding material to compile lapbooks! I have developed content for Grade 2 lapbooks. Although I am very excited about lapbooks as a learning resource, it is time-consuming to develop.
The story section for Grade 3 typically has more than one story to choose from. In each lesson, there are 2 documents that can be used with any story:
This resource allows for the drawing of the main events
This downloadable resource leans towards a written summary/ report
The story for each lesson also has video, and slideshow resources as well as questions specific to that story. We are always looking for resources, so feel free to reach out to us here on this blog.
Games and Narration
This section takes one of the stories and gives suggestions on how to act it out, or just how to tell the story with props. Sometimes, I put the props in a PDf as pictures, and other times, it’s up to the teacher to gather the props. If you like, any of the interactive games used in Grade 2 lessons can be substituted.
Craft and Activity
Creating new crafts and activities not available on any other Baha’i children’s class site is something I love to try. It is not always possible.
There are some sites that have great paid content and some are free. Twinkl has some Baha’i content some free and some are paid. I use the Australian Peace Pack, and Brilliant Star magazine for many of the lessons.
This section is where a quote from grade 2 is reviewed. The document below has the quote, (It originally had the quote in cursive, and added the easier-to-read quote also.) The third page is to fill in the blank and the last page is the answer page.
Thank you for reading I hope that some of these free downloadable resources make your class more interesting and the information easier for the students to assimilate.
