Schedule:Each festival can be the focus for a five-day week, with a concentration each day on one of thefive most potent items of devotional service as related to that festival.This program is flexible and can be used in other ways. For example, it is entirely possible totake one item of devotional service and concentrate on it for more than one day, or even an en-tire week. And, some people might want to only spend one day on a festival.Uses:
For children in non-devotee schools as a supplementary program in the morning or eve-ning
For children being home-schooled to enrich the devotional part of the program
For regular academic schools that are related to Kåñëa consciousness
For Sunday schools, children’s clubs, and similar supplementary programs.Organization of the material:
First, there is a simplified version of a story associated with the festival that can be read tothe children. A detailed version is also provided at the end.
Second, there is the educational focus in three parts: Learning Aims, What children will ac-complish by the end of this unit, and Assessing how well the aims have been achieved.Some parents and teachers may find these brief ideas to be sufficient for them to developtheir own programs.
Third, there are lists of suggested activities for children of various ages. There are also gen-eral suggestions not categorized by age.
Fourth, there are pages of resources—songs and prayers, where to find stories in scripture,pictures to color, Internet links, and so forth, to assist with the suggested activities.
Fifth, there are suggestions for how the study of this festival may be related to other areasof studyExplanation of the Three-part Educational Focus at the Top of each Page of Activities:
Learning Aims: A very general idea of the goal from the perspective of the adult who isguiding the learning
 What children will accomplish by the end of this unit: A very general idea of the goal fromthe perspective of the children
Assessing how well the aims have been achieved: Specific and measurable ways in whichthe adult can decide how well the aims have been achieved.Experienced teachers will note that the range of activities for each section demands more gen-eral ideas of assessment criteria than would be used for a lesson centered around one or twoactivities. Teachers may want to write up more focused aims, intentions, objectives, and assess-ment criteria which will correspond to the specific activities they choose.
Please note that this is the first printing—feedback is welcome and wanted to improvelater editions
