Celebrating the Mass Lesson- Gloria



Celebrating the Mass Activity-

Introduce craft: Who died on the cross so our sins would be forgiven?



catholicicing.blogspot.com- Printable Resurrection Set
Cut out Jesus prior to class so it will be easier for the students. Students color and cut out craft. Be sure to have students cut out the cross on the dotted lines so the cross will stick out. Glue cross to toilet paper roll making sure the cross is sticking out. Glue Jesus to the cross.



Lesson Plan-

Moses in the Desert and go over vocabulary words with students. Read story: “Moses in the Desert” 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.).



Craft- Introduce craft: What did God give the people to eat at night?

daniellesplace.com- Quail Paper Craft (scroll down to this)



One Page Bible Story-

lambsongs.co.nz- “Bread From Heaven” 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: Did the people listen and do what Moses said? Do you think that is easy? Can you can follow directions?

Following Directions

Need: Bop It, Ballzerko, Simon, etc.

Directions: Divide the class into groups. Have one group play one game and the other plays another, etc. Students must do what the toy tells them to do. Change games after all students get a chance to play.



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.

The Great Bible Big Fun Activity Book: From the Old and New Testaments by Toni Lind
Follow the Dots to find what the Israelites found in the desert. (quail)

Moses in the Desert (word search)



Homework- Give each student a Moses in the Desert Take 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.
