Summary/Abstract: The article deals with formation which in Edmund Bojanowski’s approach constitutes one of the structural elements of the process of education. A founder of orphanages, Bojanowski puts forward the conception of integrated education understood as a method of moral, spiritual and religious formation implemented in the process of shaping children’s attitudes with the use of stories, songs and rituals. The goal of this method is to form a child from within and to help them prepare for an independent, responsible and good life. The instructor or the teacher plays the most important role in the process of formation, as they set an example for children with their own lives, thus shaping children’s moral and religious attitudes. The natural connection between formation and poetry preconditions the choice of instruments of moral upbringing, including tales, songs and rituals.
