Selflessness: What Does It Mean? Lesson 6 Grade 1

Lesson 6 Grade 1 Ruhi Bk 3 Selflessness.

Lesson 6 this week is about Selflessness.

  • What is Selflessness?
  • How do we know we are being Selflessness?
  • Why should we practice the virtue of Selflessness?
  • When do we practice the virtue of Selflessness?

As we learn about Selflessness, memorize the quote, listen to the songs and stories, let us try to think about how we can practice Selflessness.

For lessons 4 to 8, the Prayer to memorize is “O Thou kind Lord! I am a little child”. We will continue practicing the ones we already know.

GAME SUGGESTIONS: The Snail

Ask the children to line up and hold hands, and then have the children at one end of the line stand in place, while the others begin to walk around them. Little by little, they wind themselves into a spiral to form a snail. 
Variations: 
a. Tell the children to stand in line again and hold hands. Then ask those at one end to begin to turn in a circle, slowly winding the others up around them. Make sure they are careful not to step on one another’s feet when doing so. 
b. Once the children have formed a snail, tell those in the middle to squat down and the one at the center to go under the legs of a child next to him or her, continuing through the legs of others until he or she has emerged out of the snail. The other children, while continuing to hold hands, follow him or her through one another’s legs until they all have emerged and form a line once again. To do this some children will be going under one another’s legs, while others are stepping over them.
