This is the rest of my Easter lesson. Before I get into that, I have to tell you, my write-the-room activity was a huge hit with the kids!! Each of us (hubby, kiddo, and me) each took 3 kids and walked around to each “station”. We read the little scrip to them about how it was part of Holy Week, the kids then traced the word on their worksheet. After that, they went to their seats and colored the pictures.
When we were done with that, they worked on a coloring book that I made for Holy Week. There are pictures for the different events of Holy Week, what day it occurred, and a brief description. The kids had fun with this as well. They didn’t get it completed, but it’s definitely something that they can take home to finish and have their families read to them.
Here’s a sample of a couple pages….
Clipart is hand-drawn by my husband © Elaine and © The Schoolhouse. I can’t tell you how proud of him that I am, especially since I know it’s hard for him to “believe” that he has such an amazing talent.

While the kids were coloring, my daughter read The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale. I consider it to be one of the best stories there are. I actually was introduced to this book several years ago by another catechist who read it to the whole RE program in church.
In addition, I made little Easter gift boxes for class. Each one had a couple different small toys in it, one being a slap bracelet that had “hope”, “peace”, and “faith” on them that I picked up at Wal-Mart. The main thing in the box was a plastic egg with one of each color jelly bean in it. With that was the Jelly Bean Prayer that I sort of put together myself. I used a combination of 3 different poems/prayers and made them into one that I really liked. If you’re interested in the Jelly Bean Prayer cards, you can click here to download it.
That’s all for this year’s Easter lesson!! What are you doing??
