Character Class: Emotions 2

“Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions” – Pablo Picasso

The power of motivation lies not in the knowing. It lies in the feeling of what you know and letting that feeling move your knowing forward. No wonder, emotion is spelled E-Motion.

Today, our children learned more about identifying feelings. At the end, they made Masks of Emotions. Their own emoji, that will be used in the subsequent lessons.

“For the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

The power of the heart – emotions. Our children were taught how to identify their own emotions and naming them. The goal of this is to teach them the beauty of emotions. Not to be afraid to have them. Not to be overcome by them. A man who understands all his emotions, is like a captain of a ship who knows how to use all his navigation tools to ride the rough emotional seas that lies ahead of him.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart”
― Helen Keller

Character Class on Teamwork

Today character class was about teamwork. The students were shown a tray of 15 things. They were supposed to remember and list down all the objects. They first tried to list down by themselves, then in a group of 3 to 4, and finally as a whole class. From the results, the students were able to see that when they worked as a group, their accuracy were much more higher than when they worked alone.

The scripture shared from Mark 2:1-12 further demonstrated the benefits of teamwork, when a group of friends helped their paralytic friend to be cured even though it was challenging and difficult. Doing it alone would virtually be impossible.
