Sequence & Pray – Our Father

Thanks to a blogger, Holly, using my Sequence & Pray – Hail Mary cards and mat set, they’ve become very popular.  That’s also sparked people to ask for a set for Our Father.  So thanks, Three Sided Wheel , I appreciate your interest in my Hail Mary set and that you blogged about it.

This is a set for Sequence & Pray – Our Father.  The cards can be used for concentration/memory (if 2 sets of cards are printed) or they can be sequenced on the mat with the words to the prayer on each card.  They also could be used to just recite the prayer or a number of other things.  These all must be printed on legal size paper!!  That is, 8 1/2″ by 14″ size paper.

Oh Holy Night Number Strip Puzzles

It’s time for Nativity A Day and the 18th posting of it!!  Yes, that means that there’s only 2 more to go and I’ve still missed 3 of them.  I think I did anyways.  I’ll have to go back and count again because one day I missed, but the next day I did a double.  If I only counted that as 1, then it should actually be 2 and I’ll have only missed 2.  Time to count!!  HAHA

On with the Nativity A Day for today though.  I have a pretty big variety of number strip puzzles.  Some are horizontal and some are vertical.  There’s one for counting 0-12 and one for 1-10.  There’s also 2 for skip counting by 5 and 10 and one each of skip counting by 2 and 3.  I love all the images that I used and I used a variety of fonts.  We all know about my font addiction!!  HAHA

Nativity, What Do You See? Mini-Book

Today is the 16th posting of Nativity A Day and after a couple busy days this weekend of not being able to post it, I’m back on track!!  I’m really proud of this one and so happy with how it turned out.

Today’s Nativity A Day is a mini-book called Nativity, What Do You See? and it’s based on the Brown Bear, Brown Bear concept.  I recommend printing the cover on card stock and the pages on paper.  The pages of can be printed front and back to save on paper, or printed off separately by the sheet.  The cover is slightly larger than the pages, so they should tuck in nicely and then be stapled close to the fold to hold them in.

NOTE:  I just printed the book out and I should have been more specific in the directions.  The back of each page should be printed upside down so that when it’s lifted to be read, it’s facing down and goes into the next page.  I know this doesn’t make much sense because I’m not good at describing, but take my word!!  So, if you print all the top pages, then flip them over upside down and print the backs.  Or, if your printer is like mine and does front/back printing, have it flip in the short edge instead of the long edge.  Hope this helps!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the mini-book pages…..

UPDATE:  Being a mom of 1, I know that printing the other book is quite a bit of extra paper and ink.  So, I created another book, just for ONE!!  It’s identical to the other book, but just one book prints out per page, instead of two.  Be sure to read above about printing front and back so that when the pages are turned up, they can read without having flip the book over.  I have printed this out and it works great!!  You can find the new Nativity, What Do You See? mini-book for one here.

Nativity Bingo

It’s time for the 10th Nativity A Day post.  I can’t believe how many of these I still have left to do!!  I keep wondering if I’m going to make it or if I need to change my strategy and do a few less posts the rest of the time.  I think my biggest fear is that I’m going to do it all now and then never be able to come up with a new idea to ever do with the nativity again!!

Oh well, can’t worry about that!!  Today’s Nativity A Day is Nativity Bingo.  There’s a total of 12 cards, so plenty can play.  If you need more than 12, just print about double the cards and issue 2 prizes for winning.  Every card should have every nativity element on it.  I just mixed up the locations!!  There’s no “free space” since every image plays.  Also, I made calling cards.  They can be used as is and the nativity figure called can just be marked off (laminate and use a dry erase marker), or you can cut them apart and players can draw the nativity figure that will be called next.  So, lots of variety with this game!!

The Greatest Gift Tic-Tac-Toe

It’s time for a new Nativity A Day post and I believe that this is the 8th one already.  Are you enjoying them??  I know I am!!  It’s making things a little hectic sometimes to get something new created AND posted, but I did make this a personal challenge.  So far so good!!

Today, I have a simple game that uses beautiful graphics.  The game is tic-tac-toe.  The game board features the greatest gift, baby Jesus in his manger.  The player tokens are Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus and the 3 Wise Men with baby Jesus.  This game should be great to fill in those quiet times for the kids and keep them busy!!

Double the Nativity A Day

Today is a double freebie since I was totally unable to post my Nativity A Day yesterday!!  I do apologize, but I expected at some time, life would step in….and it might not be over yet considering it’s the holiday season and all.

First up is the printable that I would have shared yesterday.  It’s a “Roll the Shepherd’s Nativity”.  The player(s) will roll a die and collect the pieces indicated for that number and assemble the nativity as they go.  This is the shepherd’s nativity or the angels telling the shepherds of the good news.

My second offering, which is today’s Nativity A Day freebie, is “Nativity Word Strip Puzzles”.  The kids will assemble word strip puzzles featuring words associated with the nativity.  There are 10 puzzles in all, but 3 of them are for the 3 Magi/Kings/Wise Men.  That way, you can choose the nativity word puzzle for them depending on what you teach and your faith since they do vary.

Pumpkin Prayer

Halloween can present may problems and issues for many Christians.  Every year, there is the debate on whether to celebrate it or not.  For me, I like to teach my religion class to find the good points to it.  Halloween only needs to be as scary and “demonic” as people want it to be. 

Liz Curtis Higgs has a great book called The Pumpkin Patch Parable.  You can read about it by clicking the book cover below.

I used the basis of this book to create the craft that we did in religion class tonight.  The kids all colored in their pumpkin patches and the pattern pieces.  Then, they cut out all the pattern pieces.  As we read the poem together, the kids assembled their pumpkin patches.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what’s included in this craft project…..

My class had so much fun with this!!  This was a fairly simple craft for us to do with restricted time.  They love the coloring (we used markers).  And, they enjoy anything they get to cut and glue!!  They were all showing their parents as they got picked up, so I know it was a success for my little ones.

If you’d like to download this freebie, just….

So, Shine with the light of Jesus and enjoy the project….and Halloween!!  I always appreciate any comments or suggestions that you leave. It helps me to know that what I created is used or what I do is like or not liked. Also, please click the button below to vote for my blog….thanks!!

Sequence & Pray – Hail Mary

I haven’t made anything new for my religion class in quite awhile.  I’ve been using what I have or searching out new things.  However, we’re learning the Hail Mary right now and I wanted something versatile for them.  That prompted me to create this “sequence and pray”. 

There are 7 cards with the words to the Hail Mary on them.  If 2 copies of the cards are printed, one could use them to play concentration.  I also created a board to go with where the cards should be placed in sequence order. (Print the board on LEGAL size paper!!)  There’s so many uses for the cards because they could just be used to recite the prayer as well.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what’s included in this “sequence and pray”…..

VBS: NYC – Big Apple Adventure

It’s Vacation Bible School time for many!!  Last year, I was asked to create some materials for one of the members of my Christian group.  Her church is using “Big Apple Adventure” by LifeWay.

First off, I created a blank file folder game.  It’s made using the NYC theme, but there’s no designated skill so that each teacher can use it to teach what they need.  I also made a set of concetration/memory cards using Romans 10:17, which is the focus of this VBS.

There’s also a maze with the “Big Apple Adventure” theme, as well as a kriss kross puzzle and cryptogram with that theme based on Romans 10:17.

I also made some decoration materials and some rewards materials.  There’s a set of NYC banners.  For the kids is some small bookmarks and doorknob hangers.  Also, there’s name tags and desk place tags.

It seems to me that there’s more, but I just can’t remember right now.  That’s ok, it’ll be a surprise when you go to download all these materials!!  I hope that you find something that you can use for your VBS, homeschool, religion class, or whatever you might need them for.

Here’s a collage of just some of the items available for this VBS….

If you’re interested in these printables, please just…..

If you use these materials for your VBS, religious education, or at home, please leave a comment and let me know how you and the kids like it.  I’d also appreciate it if you’d click one or both of the buttons below (as well as in the side bar under “rate my blog”.
