A Christmas Present

I have something special, just for you my readers. I wanted to give you a present this year for following along and putting up with my sporadic posts and everything else!!

TheChristmasStory ColoringBook PREVIEW byElaineG

This is a 4-page coloring book for the nativity. It focuses on Luke 2 and Matthew 2. It’s just a small book….well, it’s more like pages, to tell the real story of Christmas. The focus of these pages are geared toward Catholic, as I used the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Any faith surely can use it though!!

If you’re interested in these coloring pages, please just….

I hope that you can use it in your classroom, homeschool, or for religious education. If you do, please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know!!

 

 

Hear My Prayer

This past week in class, we worked on learning about prayer. It’s always such an interesting topic for my kids.

So often, they think that they can only pray kneeling.  They also think that you have to be silent when you pray.  They love finding out that they can stand up against a tree in the park and thank God for his amazing creation!!

To help them learn more about prayer, I created this prompt for them to draw their prayer….

HearMyPrayer byTheSchoolhouse SAMPLE1

I also have a big set of these prompts available in my stores.  There’s a total of 16 pages and it’s a great deal at $3.  It’s great for a variety of ages/grades as there’s prompts to write, draw, or do both!!  You can find this full set at…..

Ash Wednesday Fun and Learning

Last night’s lesson was all about Ash Wednesday and how it’s the first day of Lent.  Advent and Lent are always interesting concepts to teach the kids when it’s all about “waiting” and “preparing”.  At their age, they’re just ready for Santa and the Easter Bunny.  They soak up the information like sponges!!

AshWednesday-Ashes byElaineG 1SAMPLE

After our discussion about Lent, we focused on Ash Wednesday and did this activity page.  Since we attend mass as part of class on Ash Wednesday, it’s important the kids know all about the ashes so they know what to expect.  After that, we practiced for mass….several times!!  Our final activity was a little craft that I made for the kids.  They colored the pictures to look like themselves and then we took black paint and put a cross on the foreheads with their thumb.

Z is for Zacchaeus

Well here we are at the final Color & Write page of the Bible ABC’s.  I can’t believe that the religious education school year is over.  But it is….today!!  I’ve had such a great year and I had fantastic kids.  They really loved these alphabet pages and I hope that your kids have as well.

This week’s page is “Z is for Zaccaeus”. This coloring and writing page for Zaccaeus is perfect for the Bible ABC’s, but could also be used with a Bible lesson on Jesus or Zaccaeus.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the yoke color and write page….

Y is for Yoke

Today, I normally would have posted the FINAL page to our Bible Color and Write ABC’s, but we didn’t have class last week.  The weather was just horrible and I literally lost count at how many times the tornado sirens went off.  Next week is our final religious education class for this year and it’ll also be the final post for these pages.

This week’s page is “Y is for Yoke”. This coloring and writing page for yoke is perfect for the Bible ABC’s, but could also be used with a Bible lesson.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the yoke color and write page….

X is for (King) Xeres

Time is going so fast and it’s almost the end of the religious education year.  We have 3 more classes to go and 2 more letters of our Bible alphabet.  Amazing!!

This one is “X is for Xeres”.  This coloring and writing page for King Xeres is perfect for the Bible ABC’s, but could also be used with a lesson on Queen Esther or other Bible lesson.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the (King) Xeres page….

W is for Wise Men

It’s that time of the week and I’m here with my new Bible color and write ABC page!!

This one is “W is for Wise Men”. I absolutely love this page and the way hubby drew it.  He gave each one different head gear and clearly different gifts.   This page could also be used in a lesson for Christmas, Epiphany, or other religion lessons.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the wise men page….

V is for Vine

Back from Spring Break and although I expected to be able to post some new printable before now, I’m here with the newest Bible ABC page!!

This one is “V is for Vine”.  This page features a very full grape vine for them to color.  Vine can also be used in a lesson for names of Jesus and other Bible review lessons.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the vine page….

U is for Unleavened Bread

Another week and another color & write page for the Bible ABC’s.  I can’t believe that we don’t have many letter left this year!!

This one is “U is for Unleavened Bread”. This time, they get to color a round cake of unleavened bread and a stack of square pieces.  I hope that this page is not only good for you with the Bible alphabet, but also other lessons and reviews.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the unleavened bread sheet….

T is for Ten Commandments

I’m so happy because it just so happens that my Bible ABC page goes along with my lesson today!!

This one is “T is for Ten Commandments”. The children will color a picture of the stone tablets with roman numerals on them. This page would not only be good for the Bible alphabet, but other Bible lessons and reviews.

Here’s a thumbnail view of today’s page….
