This week in class, we’ll be learning about prayer. This is one of my favorite lessons to do with the kids. They get so wrapped up in it and they just really soak it all up. We discuss positions that one can pray in and place that one can pray. I emphisize that we shouldn’t pray to ask for things and that there are many purposes of prayer. I don’t go into the exact types of prayer because it’s just too advanced for my little ones.
The one main resource that I use is Teach Me About Prayer from Our Sunday Visitor. We do pages from it and I discuss things on the other pages. This book is perfect for the little ones to learn to pray and talk to God!!
One of the activities that we’ll do tomorrow is a coloring and writing sheet that I made. This one is for the Glory Be, as it’s the first prayer that we learn each year. They will trace the words to the prayer and the words in the coloring image. Then we’ll say the prayer together and finally, they can color it.
Here’s a thumbnail view of the page…..
