Golden Rule – And A Bit About Differentiation

Last week we opened our classroom to first graders, making our class 1st-5th grade. It has me thinking about multi-age classrooms, as well as differentiated learning in a religious education setting. While my brain has only begun to get a grasp on these contents, I’d love to have a conversation with anyone interested in these topics, if that’s you let me know!

Last week, our class learned about the Golden Rule. And more importantly, we learned that the Golden Rule can be found in every world religion! After we investigated their similarities and differences, we decorated puzzle pieces with the different Golden Rules.

At the end, we put it together to make a heart! All religions teach us to love one another.
We talked about how we try to treat others as we wish to be treated, and heard a folk tale about a family that treated their neighbors with…

En route

the Book of Bokeh

IMG_8300_1_2_3_4

I travel from my home town of Putnam, Connecticut to Cranston, Rhode Island each day, generally along rural roads. The drive is about an hour long each way and I am trying to do a better job of carrying my camera with me more often, in an attempt to catch the interplay of light on the scenes that I pass. All these photos were shot en route to or from work over a series of days. In the future, I am hoping to do more posts like this—much like the Miscellaneous series—to maintain a commentary on the changing of the seasons. I hope you like these.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

Abide

WritersDream9

Abiding With The Process. Thanks dollarphotoclub. “…Thou the abiding; O Thou Abiding One”-Baha’u’llah.
Thanks dollarphotoclub.

God abides with me daily and always

Through all the arduous journeys

My life takes me around all emotional byways

He stays by my ofttimes broken abilities

~*~

How many times I have veered off the line

The path of my own humanity for humanitys’ sake

Being present to all He offers as sacred wine

The divine Elixer of the holy Now to partake

~*~

In order to abide with you in this life

Sitting with you when you suffer

I will follow His example and be by your side

Giving you all that I have to offer.
