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!!

Aesop’s Fables Copywork

We started homeschool on Monday and right away, I noticed that Miss K had lost interest in cursive writing and it was a bit “messy”.  One of the benefits of homeschool is that we get to do activities that make things more fun and interesting to learn….or in this case, practice.  So, I got right to work making some copywork pages.

This is the first time that I’ve ever made these.  I’m pretty happy with the way that they turned out.  I started off with Aesop’s Fables because they teach such a good lesson with each one.  I had only intended to make 2 copywork books for this topic, but I got so into it, that there’s actually 6 of them.

There’s one for The Hare and the Tortoise and The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.  In addition to those, there’s 4 more cursive copywork books for Aesop’s Fables.  Each book has 10 fables to practice cursive writing.  In addition, I’m working on one more book that is all “long” fables that take a full page to write out.  I expect to have it posted later this week.

I also plan to make more copywork books for Miss K on various other topics.  If you’re interested, check back because I’ll post them when they’re ready!!  In the meantime, enjoy these and please leave me a comment to let me know what you think about them.
