Coloring Through Holy Week

This is the rest of my Easter lesson.  Before I get into that, I have to tell you, my write-the-room activity was a huge hit with the kids!!  Each of us (hubby, kiddo, and me) each took 3 kids and walked around to each “station”.  We read the little scrip to them about how it was part of Holy Week, the kids then traced the word on their worksheet.  After that, they went to their seats and colored the pictures.

When we were done with that, they worked on a coloring book that I made for Holy Week.  There are pictures for the different events of Holy Week, what day it occurred, and a brief description.  The kids had fun with this as well.  They didn’t get it completed, but it’s definitely something that they can take home to finish and have their families read to them. 

Here’s a sample of a couple pages….

While the kids were coloring, my daughter read The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale.  I consider it to be one of the best stories there are.  I actually was introduced to this book several years ago by another catechist who read it to the whole RE program in church.  

In addition, I made little Easter gift boxes for class.  Each one had a couple different small toys in it, one being a slap bracelet that had “hope”, “peace”, and “faith” on them that I picked up at Wal-Mart.  The main thing in the box was a plastic egg with one of each color jelly bean in it.  With that was the Jelly Bean Prayer that I sort of put together myself.  I used a combination of 3 different poems/prayers and made them into one that I really liked.  If you’re interested in the Jelly Bean Prayer cards, you can click here to download it.

That’s all for this year’s Easter lesson!!  What are you doing??

Follow Me

Tonight, my lesson is about teaching the kids about prophets, disciples, and apostles.  It’s important that they know what the differences are.  Part of teaching this is the “follow me” and “fishers of men” verse.  

First is a simple coloring page using either Mark and Matthew.  They are from the NAS version of the Bible, so based on the Catholic version.  Next is a paper craft perfect for multiple ages.  The kids will write their ideas on the fish on how they can become “better” disciples of Jesus.  They will then glue them to the hook (or around it) to become “fishers of men”

Here’s a sample of these 2 items….

A Lesson of Thanksgiving

This week, our lesson is on Thanksgiving.  Before I get to that, I just wanted to let you know that I do have a blog post about last week’s lesson.  It was on the Bible and I created a craft for it using images that I’d found, but I’ve been waiting for hubby to draw me some so that I could share it.  He’s now completed those drawings for me, so hopefully by this weekend I’ll be able to get it posted….and it will still be dated for last week since that’s when I did it and saved my draft post.

Now, onto this week’s lesson!!  I simply love doing the Thanksgiving lesson.  I teach very little, except to tell them that they should be thankful and why.  I then open the class up to telling me things that they’re thankful for and why.  Sometimes, it turns into a “competition”, but in a good way.  They start to realize all that they have at such a young age and when someone says something, they almost have to match it.  The reason why I like that part of it because they are so young and sometimes don’t realize what they do have for what they’ve been blessed with.  It turns out to be very enlightening!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of 2 of the activities that we’ll do in class….

The first activity is a coloring page with the pilgrims praying.  It has the Bible verse for Colossians 3:17 on it as well.  If you’d like to download this activity, just click to…..

The coloring book image comes from Calvary Baptist Church Online and is © Calvary Kids Pages.

The next activity is a coloring/drawing one.  The page says “I’m thankful for….” and the kids will draw something that they’re thankful for.  Then, I’ll have them write what it is on the line.  There is also one without the line for those that don’t want to have their kids write (or the kids can’t write quite yet).  If you’re interested in this thankful activity, just click to….

I hope that you enjoy these printables.  I’m sure hoping that my class does, but not too worried as they love busy work!!  I love comments and knowing that you’ve used my free printables at home or in the classroom, so please leave a comment or use the “contact” form in the right-hand column.

Letter of the Week: Rr

My next Letter of the Week is “Rr”.  There was so many possibilities with this letter.  I had so many words to choose from.  I think this will present good options for other activities for those that use them.

Activities for the Letter of the Week include writing practice in both ZB and DN font.  There’s also Play-Doh mats, which have a variety of uses and are also available in DN or ZB font.  There’s also a letter “Rr” book available in both fonts and letter tile mats.  Be sure to check out all the letter” R r ” printables that I’ve made.

If you use my printables, please leave a comment and let me know if you liked it or if the kids enjoyed the activity.  I can only create from the input that I get from those that use it most often!!  Also, If you enjoy my blog, posts, or printables that I share, please click the button below to vote for me.  Thanks!!
