Class 3/2/14





What are you doing in your classroom or home? I think it would be great to see what others are doing to exchange some ideas. I am constantly looking for new activities to do and I know others are too.


This is what I plan on doing with my first grade CCD class:


Review-

• Review - Sign of the Cross, Grace Before Meals, Glory Be

• Review- Last week’s Take Home Sheet

• Review- People at Mass using People at Church Cards.

• Review- Liturgical Objects at Mass (pew, stoup, altar, chalice, ciborium, Body of Christ, Blood of Christ, tabernacle, bells, lectern, ambo, Lectionary, missal, Book of the Gospels, Processional Cross, cruets, Sacramentary, Sanctuary Lamp, Presider’s/Celebrant’s Chair, missal, hymnal) using Liturgical Objects Used at Mass Cards.

If the students need help:

*Give them a clue such as saying out loud the first syllable of the word or the definition.



Lesson Plan-

Ash Wednesday & Lent and follow lesson.



Game- Introduce game: Do you know what praying, fasting, and almsgiving mean? Let’s find out.

Directions: Write each student’s name on the board (or divide class into teams). Ask each student a question below. If they are correct, they get a point. The person (or team) with the most points wins.)

After each situation, tell whether each child is praying, fasting or almsgiving.


1. Alex sings out at Sunday Mass. (Praying)

2. Mandy teaches her little sister how to play Candyland. (Almsgiving)

3. Lucy asks a new classmate to join her for lunch. (Almsgiving)

4. Mark learns the Apostles’ Creed by heart. (Praying)

5. Ian kneels by his bed and asks God to bless his mom and dad and all the children he plays with. (Praying)

6. Melinda says, “No, thanks,” when Frances offers her a candy bar. (Fasting)

7. Cecilia orders a glass of milk when the rest of the team has ice cream cones after practice. (Fasting)

8. Chris donates part of his allowance to the food pantry during Lent. (Almsgiving)

9. Kayla and her friends help Mrs. Johnson clean up her yard. (Almsgiving)

10. Juan’s family say the Rosary together once a week during Lent. (Praying)



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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.

Ash Wednesday (worksheet)- Put number one through seven on the board. Read each question and write the correct word by the number after the student has answered the question. Have the students fill in the blanks on their paper with the correct answer from the word bank.



Activity- Introduce activity: What are we supposed to do during Lent? (We are to change and become more like Jesus.)

Read the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle and ask questions from below.

What happened to the caterpillar? (He changed into a butterfly.)

Which life do you think is better, the caterpillar of the butterfly life? Why?

During Lent we are to try to “change”. (We need to be kind to others and improve our relationship with God.)



Craft- Introduce craft: What happens to a caterpillar? He changes into a butterfly. What are we supposed to do during Lent? We are to change. We are going to make something to show us how the caterpillar changed into a butterfly to remind us that we are to change during Lent and become more like Jesus.





Caterpillar to Butterfly Craft







Mini Book-

Mini Book- All About Lent (coloring booklet)

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



Game- Introduce game: Today I will send home a Take Home Test. Let’s see how well you can answer the questions.

Review Game

The objective of the game is to be the first player to score 10 points. Have a player roll the die on the floor in front of the class. If the die lands on a blank space, they do not answer a question. If the die lands on “?”, they are asked a question by the teacher from the test. If the player answers correctly, they receive a point (you can use tokens, write it on the board, etc.). If they are not correct, they do not receive a point. The first player to score 10 points, is the winner. You can play this game individually or in teams. For an added challenge, you can also have “Lose 1 Point” and “Take 1 Point” on a side of the die. When a player rolls “Lose 1 Point”, they must lose 1 point. If a player rolls “Take 1 Point”, they may take a point from any player they choose.

Make a die out of a large juice carton and put a ? mark on some (at least 3) of the sides of the die. mssscrafts.com- directions to make die.

Cube Signs- Print, cut out, and glue on die.



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.

sadlierreligion.com- Lent (word search) Grade 2, Chapter 20 (Pick the grade, type of visitor, and click on Go To. Look under Printable Activities and click on Chapters).



Homework- Give each student a Test #3 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.
