Just a quick note to let you know some of the exciting writing projects that we will be moving with this quarter and beyond. You may have heard by now that we have been reading FOLKTALES! We will continue this until the Fall Break. We will also be writing our own original folk tale and publishing it. On one educational site, there is a straightforward way for students to “publish” their work for other students and teachers to read. We will begin our publishing journey here.
I’m planning to give them enough class time supplemented by homework assignments to have the first draft and final draft completed by Fall Break. Be on the look out for a “Folk Tale Booklet” that I’ve designed to guide them to weave all the basic elements of the folk tale into their story.
Another genre that I’m presently creating for the writer’s workshop part of their studies is the Personal Narrative. Narrative writing is a wonderful way to express those little moments of life that have been exceptional in some way or manner…exceptionally wondrous, exceptionally difficult, exceptionally insightful, exceptionally fun, and so on!
As reading strengthens our writing, we will also be reading various personal narratives that can guide our keiki to reflect upon and choose the types of personal stories they would like to write about.
Thank you for supporting your child in these projects.
p.s. FYI We will not begin the Personal Narrative Unit till after Fall Break when Ramana returns.
Aloha Lovely Soul,
Thank you so much for coming to visit me at Enlightened Answers.!
I really love it when souls find benefit in what I'm writing.
These writings are based on daily spiritual study and meditation which when applied in life create a truly valuable way of life for the present and future lives as well.
It has been such a wonder to be tucked away in the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for 27 years. The past 20 have been on the oldest and most serene island of the Hawaiian chain~the northern most island of Kauai.
Most people don't realize that Hawaii is made up of a chain of seven islands, sometimes related to the seven chakras of the human body. As Kauai sits at the top of the chain; it is often called the "crown" of the Hawaiian islands.
Who am I? I am a spiritual elder and practitioner of Raja Yoga Meditation. I am a healer of hearts because I have surrendered to the Almighty who has healed mine. I offer Spiritual Empowerment sessions that assist with building trust, faith, and strength in the Self.
For each of the past eight years, I've had the wonderful fortune to have traveled to northern India to the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University on Mt. Abu, Rajasthan.
This wonderful place is also called Madhuban, which means Forest of Honey. It is a pilgrimage place dedicated to the Remembrance of God; a place to attend classes, a place to meditate by yourself or with many others; and a wonderful place to commune with like-hearted souls. It is an exceptional container reserved for souls who wish to live according to the highest codes of conduct. It is a place designed for souls to have a deep, rich, and loving meeting with the Supreme Soul. My annual journeys here have enriched my life immeasurably, beyond words.
Who am I? I am a peaceful soul who honors the peaceful soul of you. I am a lover of Truth and hope that you are able to glean deep soul answers in these writings which I , who once who was so lost and who is now found, shares with you.
Take the jewels that touch you, make them your own, and share them, for giving and receiving is a good part to play at this time of transformation of souls and of the earth.
If you are interested in going deeper, please do not hesitate to call upon me at 808-639-9436,
Many Blessings from My Heart to Yours,
