Ruhi Book 3 Lesson: Love

Bookmark and Share

Here are some suggestions for additional ideas and activities for teaching about LOVE.
I am not going to repeat in my posts what you already have in your Ruhi Books (I do the lessons from the book and the following ideas are supplemental activities to add to your lessons or replace parts of the lessons). The key is to keep it still simple enough that another teacher could also take over if necessary. As always, I would like to hear from you. What ideas and activities have you used?

Art Activity:
There is a fun book called "My Map Book" by Sara Fanelli (all of it was done by a young girl). I came across this from one of my professors while getting my Teaching credential and I loved it. This book has different maps she has drawn ranging from a map of her room to a map of her tummy. Towards the middle of the book is a page called "Map of My Heart" where she writes and draws people and things that she loves. You can show this page to your students and then have them draw their own map of their heart. I created a sheet that said "Map of My Heart" on the top and then drew a large heart on it and then had "By_______" for them to draw and color in.

Here is an example of how a completed Map of My Heart would look:
(On a side note: If you are a school teacher, you can also use some of the other pages for other subjects in the classroom. For example, to teach about timelines there is a page in the book called "Map of My Day" or they can learn about maps in general from the page about "Map of My Neighborhood")

To get the pdf of lyrics for the songs and coloring pages for each lesson, click here. This link will take you to the section within that has the lyrics and coloring pages.

You can also find CDs with the songs and sheet music by clicking here. This link will take you to the section in that has this information.

I love the song in the Ruhi Book 3 lesson, but if you would like another song or plan to do the lesson in two separate classes, a great song to use is called "Caring and Compassion" by Red Grammer and Pamela Phillips Oland on the album "Be Bop Your Best".
