Yesterday's class was a busy one even though I'd done most of the prep work ahead of time.
I went to some of my favorite sources for help:
Regina from A Living Garden,
Monica from Equipping Catholic Families and
CeAnne from Sanctus Simplicitus.
I downloaded Regina's Papal Election Playset and used it on our prayer table. I included a picture of Cardinal Theodore-Adrien Sarr that we will be praying for this Lenten Season and beyond:
Isn't Regina's Papal Election Set perfect for little hands?
They stand up because they're attached to toilet paper tubes.
Our Lenten Lapbook was a hit too with the kids.
The daily prayer cards came from Monica Equipping Catholic Families on the lower right hand corner of the above picture. I made a pocket out of cardstock to hold the prayers yet make it easy for them to take in and out.
The other source is from CeAnne at Sanctus Simplicitus. The coloring picture of Jesus on the Cross, Holy Day pictures and explanations plus the beautiful purple Stations of the Cross all came from her blog. She has so many other ideas too so I highly recommend you visit her blog HERE.
The backcover had additional prayers from Monica at Equipping Catholic Families.
I found it in her freebie section.
Here are the daily prayers from Monica displayed before putting them into the Lapbook.
I explained to the parents at pick up, that it's not homework, but I had
encouraged their children to use this Lenten Lapbook.
Recite the prayers, learn about the Holy Days and to pray for our adopted Cardinal!
Thank you Regina, Monica and CeAnne!
