Catechists and teachers will find here an abundance of material for making the Sunday gospels come to life for their students. This wonderfully illustrated and fun-to-use resource follows the gospels for every Sunday of the three-year Lectionary, as well as for the major feasts of the liturgical year. Page after page of exploring the gospel readings will enable young children to learn about Jesus in an imaginative and enjoyable way.
Each double-sided activity sheet reinforces the Sunday gospel message with pictures and number puzzles, word games, quizzes and codes. Wherever practical, the back page looks ahead to the following Sunday and motivates the children to explore the readings on their own.
The sheets are ideal for use by catechists, teachers, group leaders, and parents. Introduce them as an additional resource in children’s liturgy celebrations; use them to produce a children’s newsletter or include them in the parish newsletter or magazine; use them in religion classes, parish groups, or at school. Simply photocopy as many as you need, one for each child.
Together with its companion book, Step by Step (for children 3-7 years old) Footprints in Faith will be a valuable resource for your parish religious education program or school.
