THE MeLAND WHEEL
 
     A wheel can be a wheel because it has a Hub.  The Hub of the MeLand Wheel is LOVE.  Life can be Life because the Hub is Love.

     Eight Spokes of the MeLand Wheel are aspects that we experience daily:  We IDENTIFY ourselves in our SPACE.  We make CHOICES according to our PERCEPTION.  We live with our FEELINGS.  Our CONNECTION to our Creator within us gives us Energy.   The GRATITUDE Spoke takes us away from our outer doing self to the quiet silent place within where we can appreciate who and what we are to the fullest extent.   Note:  We call it Circle Time when a group join together, in MeLand classes, to be quiet and focused upon inner love.

     The Circumference of the MeLand Wheel holds the Hub and the Spokes in a harmonious Circle of JOY and PEACE.   

     The Circumference of the MeLand Wheel is a Visual that reminds us that we abide in the Circle of Life.  Click here to read about Circles.

     You will find that all the words on the MeLand Wheel are listed below the Wheel.  When you click on one of these words a box will appear with a Special Visual.  Just as a hammer helps you remember it pounds a nail, the Special Visuals in the boxes help you remember what each aspect of your life does for you. Under the Special Visual, there are links to Directions.


***********************

MAKE NOTEBOOKS FOR DO IT DIRECTIONS

 
     Print the directions for MeLand notebooks.  Children and teens will like the pages you give them.  It is a way they learn important lessons alone .... no teacher help.  

For five years I experienced Meland in all grades, kindergarten through 8th grade. The principal of the school where I taught gave me 45 minutes with each class.  Part of that time the children or teens worked on notebooks and the other part we (teacher, children or teens) had fun doing MeLand Activities.

Parents and Teachers:  Many directions are written in the songs, raps, and rounds. Follow these directions.

     I plan to keep adding directions but I invite you to add directions.  What you add are yours. They show the special, unique person you are.  MeLand teachers testify that they are inspired to create Directions.


*********************

SUPPLIES YOU WILL NEED
 
     For each child, a 3 ring binder for the Directions.  To make it easy to travel from one section to another, put index tabs in the notebooks.

     You will need: pens, (colored and black), crayons or colored pencils, a ruler, circle stencil, glue sticks or white glue, two MeBalls (soft and hard), a Me Stone, poster boards, a dry erase board with markers and eraser, and a round pillow for Circle Time.

**********************

ACTIVITIES and BEAT RHYTHMS
It feels good to follow the directions and then enjoy Group Activity. Teachers: When the subject matter gets intense, take time out and beat the drums.

Affirmations are mighty important.  Affirmations are intentions. 
1) Affirmations and Intentions come true. 
2) Affirmations are a way to correct behavior.
3) Plus....best of all....itís fun to beat drums and recite affirmations.
