Session 1: Introduction to the Book and Themes

4. Explain that in the following sessions, they will explore these themes through various activities.

Session 2: Exploring Love and Relationships
1. Begin by revisiting the chart paper from the previous session and discussing the theme of love. Ask students to share examples of people they love and why.
2. Engage students in a role-play activity where they act out different scenarios that demonstrate love and care for others. Encourage them to use their imagination and emotions.
3. After the role-play, provide each student with a piece of construction paper and art supplies. Ask them to draw a picture of someone they love and write a short sentence or word describing why they love that person.
4. Allow students to share their artwork and sentences with the class, fostering a sense of appreciation and empathy.

3. Engage students in a hands-on activity where they create a growth chart. Provide each student with a long strip of construction paper and markers. Ask them to draw pictures or write words to represent different stages of their own growth.
4. Hang the growth charts around the classroom, allowing students to observe and appreciate their classmates’ growth journeys.
