Leader Reflection and Planning
Today's session included a few games or other activities to encourage children to play together. Did you feel they played well together? Is the group feeling like a community, a family? If not, what seems to be missing? If so, do the children recognize themselves to be a community?
How can you be more aware of the dynamics of the group in future sessions to encourage cohesion? Might it help to repeat any activities from this session?
One way to build community is to engage others in a highly organized scheme. How can you be like Hare, who inspired many friends to jump in and build a house together? Look over the next session you will lead for any preparation that you need to do in advance.
