Montessori Stations

I’ve been trying to decide what printables to make for Easter.  While taking notes for the ideas that are going through my head, I found some beautiful art work for Stations of the Cross.  

I decided to make some Montessori inspired 3-part cards.  Each card has the beautiful art work on it to match to the clearly marked station, along with the event.  These are quite ink intensive, but I believe that they’re well worth it.  I think these are going to be a lovely addition to a lesson on the Stations of the Cross.

Here’s a sample of the 3-part cards….

Palm Sunday Paper Craft

This coming weekend starts Holy Week with Palm Sunday.  Tonight is the night that I teach my kids about Holy Week and what a special time it is.  I’ll do Easter next week, but tonight is all about the events leading up to one of the most important days there is.

I did several “lessons” with the kids, but our main focus was this paper craft project.  It’s a simple color, cut, and paste activity.  Choose the background you’d like to use, then the pieces that go with it.  Finally, glue all the pieces to the background and add “Hosanna!” to the project.

Here’s a sample of the completed project….

Water Miracles

This post has been updated after we did the project!!

Tonight, my lesson is on the miracles of Jesus.  I’m focusing on “Jesus Walks on Water” and “Jesus Calms the Storm”.  I had a few activities in my books to do with the kids.  I’m sure that they’ll like the variety.

These are just a few suggestions that I have to help enhance your lesson.  After we read the story, we did this page.  This is great for littles and has a lesson for one of these miracles.  I’m a huge fan of Rainbow Publishers and have the book that these crafts come from.  I was going to do one of them, until I came up with my own.  

I wanted to do a special craft project with the kids though.  I decided to do something versatile and fun.  What I ended up making could be used with either miracle.  I’m sharing the project with you in hopes that you all can use and enjoy it.  I’ll be sure to let you know what my kids think of it too!!

What I plan on doing with the kids is to tear or cut shades of blue tissue paper.  We’ll glue them down to blue or gray construction paper.  While that dries, the kids will color the pieces of this craft (boat and Jesus) and cut them out.  We’ll then glue them on top of the sea waves (tissue paper).  With this printable, I’ve included some water waves that can be printed on cardstock if you don’t want to mess with cutting/tearing tissue paper and gluing it down.

Here’s a sample that I made to show the kids of how to assemble theirs tonight….

Jonah and the Whale

I’m so excited to share this craft that I made.  I just know that my kids are going to l-o-v-e it!!

My lesson is on obeying God and I just love relating Jonah to this lesson.  For this craft, the kids will color it and cut it out.  For my class, I’m going to cut the whale apart on the dotted line so there’s no mistakes!!  Then there’s a choice of which Jonah to put in the belly of the whale (big fish).  It can either be standing or kneeling/praying Jonah.  Also, I included a Bible verse about obeying that my class glued on the top of the whale (big fish), but this is optional or you can add your own.  One other thing that I did was to put dotted circles around the verse and Jonah for younger kids to cut out and older ones can directly cut him out.

Here’s a couple photos of the finish project (uncolored but assembled)….

Who Is My Neighbor?

I’m so happy to be sharing a new project with you.  I had so much fun making these!!  This is 2 activities to do with the Good Samaritan.  It of course, can be use with others but was made for that parable.

The first activity is the one that I did with my class and the kids simply loved it.  It’s a story wheel to retell the parable of the Good Samaritan.  There are 5 images to do this.  Also, I made 2 versions of the wheel.  One for littles so that they can just color, cut, and assemble.  Then there’s a version for older kids that they have to color, cut, and put them in order before they assemble it.

Lastly, there’s a sequence book.  It features helping hands covers and each event from the parable is sequenced inside the book.  There’s 6 images to do this.  I really like my activity, but I just wasn’t sure my kids were ready for it, but that’s alright because I had fun making it and I’m hoping that others can use it!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of a couple parts of these freebies….

Ten Commandments for Kids

This is a project that is very dear to me.  I really wanted my class to learn about the Ten Commandments in a way that they could learn and remember them.  To remember them, they’d need something that they could go back and look at and know what the Commandment was.  To do this, I’d need pictures and not many words, after all, most 4 & 5 year olds can’t read.

My final project is a mini coloring book.  I have to tell you, there is a story behind this and why it’s taken this long for me to post it.  First, I made it for my class last year, but it never got used.  I struggled with the 5th Commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Kill”.  I finally used an image of a boy holding a gun with the circle and line through it.  I knew it was strong and in your face, but in today’s world, I wanted to be clear on what it meant.  My DRE immediately turned this down, which I understood.  However, she also said that I couldn’t show any type of “violence”….death.  I couldn’t even show them fighting.  I didn’t use this book and put it on the back burner for awhile.  I finally got this Commandment to a way that I’m happy with it and think that it explains enough to the kids.  I’ve showed it to many people and they think that the way I originally presented it was fine, especially in today’s world and they said this one is good too.  The tv they watch and games they play are far worse.  That being said, it’s still toned down because I want to benefit as many kids as possible.  I went the “fight” way, but I still can’t use it in class, per my DRE’s wishes and thus I’ll probably never fully teach them.  However, I’m hoping that this helps many others teach the Ten Commandments to their kids!!

UPDATE:  After my DRE saw this version of the book, I was allowed to use it in my class.  The kids really loved it and they wanted to talk about what was happening on every page!!

Please note that this is the Catholic version of the Ten Commandments.  Everything is presented in a simple manner with stick kids so that they understand each Commandment.  I tried to use as few words as possible since it’s geared toward little ones who probably can’t read.  The last page of the mini coloring book lists the 10 Commandments along with the tablets.  I also included extra page of them for you to do as you’d like with whether you use as a worksheet or poster…..or something else. 

Here’s a thumbnail view of a couple pages of this coloring book….

What’s Inside the Church?

This week, my lesson was on church.  I not only cover behavior, but things that we see in church.  I like the kids to be familiar with their environment and have some understanding of what they see and why it’s in church.  I only did one of these activities with my kids because I had a couple other good materials to use.

The first activity is a cut and paste.  This is the one that I did with my class.  There is a sheet with lots of items found in church and the same number that aren’t found in church.  The kids find 6 items that are in church and glue them to the church windows.  With all the options, my kids had several different versions because they all remember different things in church.  I think it made it really fun!!

The next activity is a worksheet for matching items to the church.  There’s several items all around the church and the kids draw a line from the items found in a church to the church and nothing is done with the other items….or you could have them cross them out.

Here’s a thumbnail view of both activities…..

Holy Trinity

My lesson with my class today is the Holy Trinity.  Sometimes this is easy to teach…..and others it’s a real challenge.

For my lesson today, I’ve made 2 printables for my kids to do.  They’re both sort of crafty and I think that they’ll have fun with them.  First up is a cut and paste activity to glue the trinity triangle onto a shamrock (I printed this on green paper).  Then, they’ll place the 3 symbols for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the proper locations on the triangle.  We’ll discuss how all 3 persons are really the 1 God and how the shamrock teaches us how to learn and remember the 3 persons of the trinity.

Next, we’ll do a heart shamrock craft.  They’ll cut the hearts out and trace the names of the 3 persons of the trinity and color the shamrock.  After that, they glue the 3 hearts on the shamrock to complete it.  It’s a simple project, but I think that it’ll really help them learn the placement the 3 persons.

Here’s a thumbnail view of both projects…..

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….

Adam and Eve

Today’s lesson in religion class is Adam and Eve.  I pretty much cover Creation fully, then I do Adam and Eve.  That’s where I’m at today.

I was totally blank for ideas, then all of a sudden I found an image on the internet and it spurred an idea in me.  The “craft” that we’ll be doing is a follow the direction.  Since my kids can’t read yet, I’ll give them the directions one at a time and we’ll move on after everyone has each one done.

First, you’ll need the Garden of Eden coloring page scene.  Next, you’ll need my page that has the directions, Adam, Eve, and an apple on it.  You can get that if you click here.  That’s it….the rest is in the directions!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of my page….

We’ll also be doing this and using an activity from this.  In addition, we’ll read the kids version of the story of Adam and Eve and I have a coloring/activity page printed out from the internet, but can’t remember the source as I’ve had it for a couple years now.

Days of Creation

I’m just a couple of days away from my first religion class this year.  I’m pretty excited. This will be the smallest class that I’ve had since starting though.  Right now, my count is at 7 kids.  That’s a small class for me!!

Our first lesson is going to be Creation.  This is the best place to start with my little ones because the first class can be pretty hectic.  There’s usually one student that gets enrolled the day of the first class.  It’s also the time that we go over rules, folders, and all those goodies.

I’ve made something new to use this year in class for our lesson.  It’s a story wheel for the days of Creation.  It’s actually 2 wheels with the first being the day of creation and the second one being an image of that day.  The whole thing can be colored and assembled fairly easy by little ones….and big kids should enjoy it too!!  The little ones will definitely need help cutting out the viewing boxes, but depending on their skill level, they might be able to cut out the rest.

Here’s what the story wheel looks like….

Armor of God

Tonight’s lesson was all about bringing the Armor of God to my students.  I wanted to show them in a fun way that there are things that they possess to protect them from evil.

I created a couple printable to use with my class, then I made a couple extra things in hopes that others would be able to us them.  First, there’s a set of memory match cards.  The armor is matched to its virtue.  There are also two worksheets.  One of them is “Label the Armor of God” and the other is “Armor of God Cut & Paste” where the armor is cut and glued next to the virtue.

Finally, it’s the big one!!  I called it “Roll the Armor of God”, but it has so many other uses.  It can be used to roll a die and place the Armor of God on the soldier.  This can also be used for a felt story set, which is basically how I used it with my kiddos.  I read the Bible verse to them and they dressed their doll in the armor as I read the verse.  It could also be used as a simple paper craft to do with the kids.  There’s 2 versions of this all in one download!!  There is a boy and girl soldier doll, as well as a black & white version or color version.  Then for the “Roll the Armor of God”, there’s just the virtue listed or the piece of armor with the virtue to use depending on the age of your kids.

On a side note, these activities are based on the Catholic version (NAS) of the Bible.  The only part that I didn’t use was the wording for “having girded your loins in truth”.  I chose to use “belt” instead as it’s easier for my little ones to understand.  I did choose to use “shod your feet”, as they grasped that it was shoes/boots and I didn’t want to use “sandals” as many do and hubby drew me great armor boots.

Here’s a sample of some of the items for the Armor of God (click to enlarge)….
