Celebrating the Mass Lesson- Penitential Rite



Celebrating the Mass Activity-


The activity below is free, however it can 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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.



Penitential Act Puzzle- Print puzzle on card stock and have the students cut on the lines to make a puzzle. Have the students put the puzzle together to practice the Penitential Act. Put puzzle pieces in an envelope or Ziploc bag.



Lesson Plan- Moses and the Bulrushes and go over vocabulary words with students. Read story: “Moses in the Bulrushes” The Usborne Children's Bible by Heather Amery and ask questions from Take Home Sheet that will be sent home today. Note: When I read the story to the students I usually sit in the chair in the corner by the board and have the students sit on the floor in front of me. After the students have answered the questions about the story, I have them go back to their seats to continue with what is on the lesson plan (activity, craft, game, puzzles/worksheets, etc.).



Crafts- Introduce craft: What is in the Nile River that could have eaten baby Moses? A crocodile.


storyplace.org- Stand Up Crocodile



Introduce craft: Whose mother secretly hid them and later put him in a basket and floated him down the Nile River? Or- What did Moses’ mother put him in and floated him down the Nile River?



Baby Moses Story Wheel (Bible Wheels to Make and Enjoy by Carmen Sorvillo, page 17 & 18). Students are given the story wheel to color and put together. Then they turn their story wheel dial to retell the Bible story they learned over and over again. (There are 3 different views to this Story Wheel.)



One Page Bible Story-

lambsongs.co.nz- “Baby Moses is Safe” by Jill Kemp

Have students read the one page Bible story out loud in class by taking turns (each read a page) and take home to read to their parents. Students can also color one page Bible story.



Game- Introduce game: What was the name of the baby that was put in a basket and sent down the Nile by his mother? Who found Moses?



Moses in the Bulrushes- (file folder game)




Puzzles & Worksheets- While students are doing puzzles/worksheets, etc. they may say a prayer. Students are asked to recite 5 prayers by the end of the year. A “We Know Our Prayers” chart is on the bulletin board. If the student can recite the prayer correctly, write the date on the chart, and they get to pick a prize from the prize bag.

A Baby in a Basket- Amazing Bible Mazes by Anita Reith Stohs, page 7. (Click on Sample and go to page 7.)



Homework- Give each student a Moses in the Bulrushes Home Sheet for their parents to go over with them to review what we have done in class. Parents need to help their child fill this out and bring back to class the following week. Students that complete their homework and bring it back to class will be able to play Homeworkopoly. Each Sunday the students make a mini story book and/or story wheel in class. Students need to read these to their parents (or the parents read to them) the mini book and/or story wheel for homework.
