Ruhi Book 3 Grade 2 & a collection of songs

Teaching Children's Classes – Grade 2

Courses in the area of child education form a specialised branch in the Ruhi Institute’s series, which will train teachers of Bahá’í children’s classes for grade two and upwards and will become progressively more complex in nature. It is envisioned that, upon their completion of this specialised branch, teachers will have acquired a substantial amount of knowledge about the field of education in general and will have developed fairly sophisticated skills related to lesson planning and classroom management.

This book, which builds on the experience gained in Book 3, Grade 1 in teaching classes for the spiritual education of children, is intended for those interested in pursuing this highly meritorious path of service. It presents an opportunity for participants to reflect on their first year in conducting a children’s class and offers lessons for the second grade of an educational programme inspired by the Bahá’í teachings.

Courses in the area of child education form a specialised branch in the Ruhi Institute’s series, which will train teachers of Bahá’í children’s classes for grade two and upwards and will become progressively more complex in nature. It is envisioned that, upon their completion of this specialised branch, teachers will have acquired a substantial amount of knowledge about the field of education in general and will have developed fairly sophisticated skills related to lesson planning and classroom management.

This book, which builds on the experience gained in Book 3, Grade 1 in teaching classes for the spiritual education of children, is intended for those interested in pursuing this highly meritorious path of service. It presents an opportunity for participants to reflect on their first year in conducting a children’s class and offers lessons for the second grade of an educational programme inspired by the Bahá’í teachings. Also included in the book is a collection of songs for use in educational activities with children.

This course currently comprises two units:

  • Reflecting on Experience, and
  • Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 2.

The first unit provides teachers opportunity to analyse the insights they gained teaching the Grade 1 materials. The second unit contains 21 lessons for children in the second year of the programme.

The lessons are divided into seven sets of three lessons. Each set addresses some aspect of the habits and patterns of conduct that are a manifestation of the inner qualities addressed in the first year of the program. The themes of the seven sets are:

  1. Maintaining a prayerful attitude
  2. Adhering to the laws of God
  3. Seeking knowledge
  4. Living in harmony with others
  5. Being a good friend
  6. Devoting one's life to service
  7. Engaging in consultation

Each lesson consists of five elements: Memorisation of prayers and quotations; songs; stories; drama; and drawing.

  • What is a Study Circle?

    Over the past few decades, the worldwide Bahá'í community has developed an educational programme that seeks to cultivate the vast and powerful potentialities inherent in every human being.

  • What is a Children's Class?

    Bahá'í Children's Classes, generally for those aged 5 to 11, are based on the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith. They contribute to the awakening and nurturing of the spiritual nature of children through the development of spiritual attributes (or virtues common to all the world's major religions), as well as the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes required to love and serve humanity. Subject to parental approval, Bahá'í Children's Classes are open to and suitable for all children regardless of their cultural or religious background.
