In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Give a handout and a pencil to each child as they arrive. Ask them to take a seat, read the list of words, and beside each word write the first word which comes to their mind. Encourage them to use one-word responses and write them down without thinking long about them—their gut reactions. Invite participants to share verbally with the group some of the words they came up with in their associations. If a word seems unusual to you, ask the child why they think they associated that words with the covenant words.
Tell the group that they will talk in a moment about comments posted on the Rainbow Wall Hanging. Suggest children take a few minutes to look over the words on the wall hanging or try to remember something they contributed in a past session.
If some participants may find reading a challenge, pair individuals as they arrive. Have one child read a word from the list and the other respond quickly with a one-word association. Or, have a co-leader begin reading from the list and invite all participants to call out their word associations; new arrivals may join in as they enter.
