Catholic BLURT! Game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.


Catholic BLURT is based on the game Bible Blurt.




Catholic BLURT! For 3 Players or 4 Teams. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

A fun and exciting way to review the Bible and the Catholic faith. When the Reader gives the Definition, blurt out the word you think it defines. There’s no penalty for wrong answers. You can blurt as many times as you want until somebody gets the correct answer. If you’re the first one to blurt the correct answer, move your pawn the number of spaces rolled by the Reader. If there’s a tie, read another Definition. Only the players who tied can blurt. If you land on a square that’s already occupied by another pawn, there’s gonna be a Showdown! The two players on the square have a Definition read to them by another player. If you’re first to blurt the correct word, you win the Showdown and may remain on the square. If you’re not first, you have to go backward the amount of squares shown on the die. If you land on a square that matches the color of your pawn, this is your big chance to challenge another player and takeover his or her square! Place your pawn on the same square with the player you want to challenge. Play the same way as you would in a Showdown, except the winner remains on the lead square, and the loser has to go back to the square from which the challenger came. The first player or team to return to “Start,” after going all the way around the Game Board, is the . . . WINNER! You don’t have to land there by exact count.



Need:

Game Cards
Die
Game Board
4 Pawns (red, yellow, blue, and green)



Directions- Print out Directions. Rule variations are included.

Game Board- Print game board on legal size paper (8.5” x 14”). Print out Game Board, trim, and glue on the inside of a legal size file folder or a piece of cardboard.

Catholic BLURT! title and START Square- Cut out Catholic BLURT! Title and glue in the middle of the game board. Cut out START square and glue on game board like in the picture above.

Game Cards- (Use these Game Cards or make up definitions yourself and play with your class. You can make it specific to what you have been learning and to the students in your class. Game Cards are in MS Word and can be changed any way you like.) Print Game Cards out on card stock. Cut out Game Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last. Use only the cards that reflect your student’s abilities. There are 232 Game Cards for you to choose from. Note: Please take in consideration that I am just a Mom and I'm providing these clues to the best of my abilities. I tried to make them as accurate as possible, but I know I probably made a few mistakes and it was not intentional. (Questions taken from a Catholic Bible.)

Crafty Crafters: Angel





So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for “Mary and the Angel”?


Here is a craft I make with my students using cupcake liners:



books.google.com- Crafts from Your Favorite Bible Stories by Kathy Ross, pages 16 & 17

Jacob’s Ladder

Just make the angel that is in this craft using cupcake liners and construction paper. You can also make the angel into a magnet by putting sticky-backed magnets on the back of the angel.

*To make it easier for young children just have them fold one white cupcake liner in half (like pictured above) and attach with glue.

Prior to class I cut out the little head. It is so small that my first graders have a hard time cutting it out. I also use a paper plate to show the students how to fold the cupcake liners.



Please comment so I can add the link to your blog to this post. We would love to see what you do!

I’m Sorry (file folder game)



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.




I’m Sorry: As players move around the game board, they are given fictitious situations in which they have done something wrong. The player must then apologize to the person to his/her left for the situation on their card and they must be specific with their apology. They must say something like, “I’m sorry I took your video game,” instead of “I’m sorry.” The player that they apologized to must then say, “I forgive you.” Teaching children to apologize and to seek forgiveness from family and friends will encourage them to do so with God. The player then must also say what they should do to correct their mistake and/or what consequences should happen to them so they will learn to take responsibility for their actions. If the player apologizes correctly for the situation they receive a token. If a player lands on “Lose 1 Token” they must forfeit one token. The player at the end of the game who has the most tokens wins.

Directions- Print out Directions and keep inside file folder when not playing game.

Game Board- Print out Game Board and glue on the inside of the file folder. Laminate or cover file folder with clear contact paper to make it last.

Game Cards- Use these Game Cards or make your own. Print Game Cards out on card stock. Cut out Game Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last. Only use the questions that are age appropriate for your students.

Who am I?

Need: 1 chair

Directions: The students sit in their own seats while the one who is “It” sits in a chair in front of the room, with his back toward the other students. Someone is chosen by the teacher to go up and stands behind the chair. Then “It” asks the person various questions to guess who the person is. The unknown person must answer the questions truthfully, but can disguise their voice. (Determine the number of questions “It” can ask to person before playing starts.) After the questions have been asked and answered, “It” must guess who the person is. Whether if “It” is right or wrong, the unknown person then becomes “It”.
