Using the story of "Hudda the Hermit Crab," we will be reinforcing two concepts, oneness and presence. Hudda the Hermit Crab is a fascinating character full of unique quirks that make him not only unique, but admirable! in this story he shows readers that through the practice of presence he is able to experience higher levels of happiness and connection to life around him. Students will learn about the concept of oneness and apply this to their own life through completion of and discussion about the "All the Ways" worksheet. In this worksheet students will list all the ways that they are similar to a child living in a different part of the world (i.e. two legs, family, etc.) as well as all the experiences that they share in common (i.e. excited for holiday, swimming in the ocean, etc). They will also be encouraged to journal each day about all the ways they felt loved and shared love that day. There is no force greater than love! This daily journaling practice will serve as a powerful reminder of how present love is in their lives and how they can be active source for spreading love in the world!
Children are born with a curiosity about the natural world and an innate sense of connection. This feeling of connection, of being part of a greater whole, is so essential to their well being and development! There are so many ways to encourage this connection from time in nature to time in reflection. Finding small ways to make this a part of their life will have big impacts!
(Optional) daily practice of being love.
