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….

Holy Week Cross Craft

This is the (uncolored sample) project that I did with my class tonight for Holy Week.

Click to enlarge.

Click to enlarge.

For this craft project, we colored the events of Holy Week.  Then, we cut them and the cross out.  Next they colored the paper plate with yellow, orange, and red so that it’d look like a sunset behind the cross.  (You could also use paint for the paper plate.)  I then read a story to the kids about the events of Holy Week and we placed the colored pictures on the cross in sequence order as we read about them.  Finally, we wrapped the purple ribbon around the cross and glued it to the paper plate.

Full instructions, the cross template, and coloring images for the events of Holy Week for this craft are included in the download.  The cross has to be printed on legal size paper.  If possible, I suggest using cards stock in legal size so that it’s more rigid.  I did mine on paper though and it worked just fine.  There is also a second version included that’s just printed on legal size paper, but you don’t have to mount it to the paper plate.

I hope that you’re kids enjoy this project as much as mine did.  When we completed it, they all wanted to see what each others turned out like since they all color a little differently and I had 4 different purple ribbons.  They all ran to their parents saying “look what I made” and “see my pretty cross”.  So satisfying to see them that happy!!

Sequence The Creation

This was our second week of religious education (CCD).  We’re still working on creation.  This week we did the creation of man and finished off with God resting on the 7th day. 

One of the things that I used this week was this game that I made.  The kids sequence the days of creation.  I used a color version, but I also made a black & white version.  I thought it’d be fun to have the kids color the game board and the tokens to help re-enforce being able to sequence the days of creation.

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

I hope that you enjoy these games. My class sure did and they’ll make for good review continuing through the year!!
