Teaching Children's Classes Grade 1
Grade 1 is the first year of a program for their spiritual education, generally aged 5 & 6.
Current guidance: It is recommended that all children starting children's classes begin with Grade 1 Lessons
even though they are older than 6 years of age.
Lessons for children's Classes, Grade 1 offers a set of 24 Lessons intended to foster the development of spiritual qualities in children.
We now have 24 lessons, which are an updated version (pre-publication) of Ruhi Institute Book 3. Now called Children's Classes Grade 1, each of the lessons is structured around the development of a spiritual qualities, and many of the 15 lessons from the initial edition of Book 3 have remained.
There are new songs & information below about where you can get these from.
Resources for each Lesson
To help better memorise the various quotes and prayers,
A lovely memorisation booklet has been put together (based on an idea from Leyla Neilsen Atusa Nemat)
Each time the children give the memorisation a try, they get a tick in one of the boxes.
Once they can say the whole quote / prayer by heart, they get a sticker in the last box.

Here you will find all the colouring-in images with quotes for the New Grade 1. On each A4 sheet there are 2 pictures.
It has been found that an A4 size colouring often takes longer than what we had time for. A time saver & less copies to do.
