A Christmas Present

I have something special, just for you my readers. I wanted to give you a present this year for following along and putting up with my sporadic posts and everything else!!

TheChristmasStory ColoringBook PREVIEW byElaineG

 

This is a 4-page coloring book for the nativity. It focuses on Luke 2 and Matthew 2. It’s just a small book….well, it’s more like pages, to tell the real story of Christmas. The focus of these pages are geared toward Catholic, as I used the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Any faith surely can use it though!!

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

I hope that you can use it in your classroom, homeschool, or for religious education. If you do, please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know!!

God Made Me and I Am Special

We’re finally done with creation and it’s 2-week lessons.  Now, we’re moving on to “God made me/I am special”.

This year, I wanted to do something really fun and special for this lesson.  I knew that if I was going to implement something new, I’d have to have it be our craft project.  I searched and I searched and I couldn’t find a thing that I wanted to do.  Finally, I clicked way back in the search results instead of what was right in front of me.  Low and behold, I found it!!  What I found was a handprint poem, but it wasn’t Christian based, so I knew I had to dig further.  Finally, I found it!!

I made a frame and put the Christian handprint poem in it.  I printed it on cardstock and was on my way to class.  I picked out 3 colors of paint to let the kids decide which they wanted to use.  I put a small amount of the paint on paper plates and they placed their hand on it and then on the cardstock inside the frame and above the poem.  For each student, I put the paint on the paper plate to avoid mess!!  I used the vertical one for my class, but have included 2 other horizontal ones and each features a different poem.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the framed poems…..

Poems are by “Unknown” and from an internet source.

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

I hope that you enjoy this craft project.  If I change anything ever in the future, it’ll be to add their name and date within the frame, however, I simply wrote it on the back so the parents can frame as is.  My class really had fun with this one!!

The Creation Mini-Book

Our first Religious Education (CCD) class was last night.  It was a great class!!  I have 10 kids and 1 of them was absent.  The class is split in half….5 boys and 5 girls!!  Our first lesson was Creation (and I continue it next week with Adam & Eve).

I made this mini-book for my class to do.  It’s a simple one to start the year off.  Each page has a coloring image.  There’s also a verse (from NAS) that they can read or if they’re too small, can be read together as a class.  I also did word tracing for each day of creation. 

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the minibook…..

I hope that you enjoy this mini-book.  My class sure did!!  I plan to make more mini-books in the future as well.  What else would you like to see??
