First Day Stories with Lessons for Friends' Children
First Day Stories with Lessons for Friends' Children is a revision of Katherine Newman's earlier book called First Day Stories. What's new is the addition of two lesson plans per story so that First Day School teachers need not spend a lot of time preparing each lesson.
Created for Quaker children and their First Day School teachers, First Day Stories with Lessons for Friends’ Children consists of 12 illustrated stories to read to 3- to 5-year-olds, along with two lessons per story about contemporary Friends’ practices and community in unprogrammed meetings. The stories portray a Quaker family at home and in Meeting—for example, shaking hands after Meeting, holding others in the Light, comforting a sad Friend, and aiding persons without homes. The lessons at the back of the book may be used without additional materials and without extensive teacher preparation.Author: Katherine Newman
