Advent Lesson

Advent Lap Book

There are many great Catholic bloggers who have created lap books for the various liturgical feast days including Advent.  I wanted my first graders to make one this year and I chose the format from Holly at Three Sided Wheel.  I pre-assembled the majority of it myself before class since we only have an hour and a half of class time.  The plan was for them to decorate it but also have time to talk about it.  Here is my sample:

I prefer my students to have something tangible when they leave class to help them learn more about their faith, but also to be able to talk about what they learned with their parents.

For other ideas on Advent lap books you can go HereHere or Here.

Thank you Holly for sharing your talents and gifts with the rest of us!  I know I've been blessed as well as my students by your Advent Lap Book.



  1. You must be a very dedicated teacher. Is it a Catholic school you teach at?

    I bet the kids love you.

    God bless.

    1. Victor, you are so kind. The kids do enjoy coming to class as long as I keep them active. They are six years with lots of energy and yes, it's my Catholic Church. We have Religious Education classes following the 10am Mass. Thank you for visiting!

  2. "to be able to talk about what they learned with their parents"

    Yes. My kids' homework is to tell their parents as soon as they get in the car what they just learned in class.
