The Good Shepherd

Last week, we worked on The Good Shepherd in my religion class.  I enjoy teaching this one to the kids to help them understand how loved we are.  We are protected by his love and his son, Jesus, died for us.

I made 2 things for my class to use.  The first is a worksheet.  It’s to match Jesus and his sheep to a sheep on the page.  A line is drawn to match the 2 and then colored to match each other.  The next item is a coloring page.  It’s Jesus among the sheep with the verse from John 10:11 (NAS).

God Made Me

The lesson for tomorrow is “God made me” and “I am special”.  I generally talk about Joseph and how he wasn’t only special to his dad, but how he special he was to be chosen by God and everything that he did for the people.  This year, I wanted to sway away from that.  I wanted to shift my focus to how God created us and how special we really are.  Now I normally do this, but I mean in the sense of our bodies and stuff.

The main project that I’m doing with the kiddos is this worksheet that I made.  It’s a cut and paste page!!  First we’ll do our discussion of course, then they’ll color it.  After that, we’ll go through each body part and glue them in the appropriate space on the page.  After that, we’ll go through the sheet and glue how each part helps us share God’s creation.  

Here’s a thumbnail of the worksheet….

Advent Wreath – A Paper Craft

This week, I did an Advent Wreath paper craft with my class.  We had so much fun doing this.  It was quite a bit of work for them to do, but they loved being busy and seeing their final product.  They just love to take their projects home!!

This is a 4 candle wreath.  I know some households and churches place a white candle in the middle, but we don’t teach it that way.  You could print out an extra candle if it’s your choice to teach it that way in your class or home.

Here’s a sample of how this craft could be completed (click to enlarge)….

COMING SOON!!

There are several ways to decorate this craft.  Some suggestions are to use buttons or fake holly berries or add red glitter to the paper holly berries.  Use fake holly leaves on the wreath instead of the paper ones or add glitter to the veins in the paper holly leaves.  Candles could be colored with crayon, markers, or wrapped in tissue paper.  The flames could be covered in glitter and placed on the candle the week that the candle is lit.  There are also 4 labels to place on the candles for what each one stands for.  There are several possibilities for this paper craft!!

If you’re interested in this craft, just click to…..

I hope that you and your kids or class enjoy this craft project.  If you do this project at home or in class, please just leave me a comment or use the “contact” button in the right hand column.  I’d love to hear from you and see how your project turns out!!

Angels and Guardian Angels

Last week, my CCD lesson was angels and guardian angels.  I was disappointed because of all the many (and I mean MANY) workbooks and such that I have, there’s not much on angels.  My online search proved to find much of the same.  I thought for those of you perhaps doing a lesson on angels or needing materials might find some of what I found useful.

First, my class is starting to learn the “Guardian Angel Prayer”.  I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, so I created a writing practice worksheet for them to do as homework.  I found a couple of amazing coloring pages here and here.  They both came from Catholic Parenting.  I placed these coloring pages on the side for the kids to color and the prayer along the other side for them to copy.  I find that even as little as they are, they memorize it quite well with printing practice!!  You can find my “Guardian Angel Prayer” copywork/printing practice by clicking the button….

In my search, I found some other good materials that I’d like to share with you.  At this site, you’ll find some really good angel printables including an angel shape book.  There’s a Jesus Loves Me and You angel coloring and writing practice sheets.  I found these fantastic coloring pages for the archangels at Waltzing Matilda.  In case you’re in need of coloring pages, take a look around her blog because she has lots of good ones!!  To go along with those archangels, there is one here with all 3 of them for their feast day.

Back at Waltzing Matilda, she has a great angel mobile craft.  For the littles, you’ll find coloring pages, crafts, and lessons.  If you browse DLTK, you’ll find “angels of the Bible”, along with other angel crafts and activities.  One can even get printable angel wings for paper dolls.

There are even angel cards and award certificatesCatholicMom.com has an Angel of God bookmark.  I don’t visit the site that often any more because well, I just don’t enjoy the format of it and I find it hard to navigate.  However, if you take the time, you’ll find more angel items and lots of great things on items that you might be working on!!  I found this Bible study worksheet on angels.

Now there’s a lot more angel printables out there.  Many of them are Christmas related, which really is a whole other topic.  There are just a few of my favorite things that I found, or things that I knew I could use now or in the future.  Hopefully you’ll find something to suit your needs among these links and ideas.

If you enjoy my blog, use my printables, or just stopped by, I’d appreciate it if you’d leave a comment.  If you’d rather, you can just vote for my blog by clicking one or all of the buttons in the right column under “Rate My Blog”.  I really appreciate anyone that does that because that’s what I use to know if my blog, posts, printables, and so on are being viewed and used!!
