Religion Lessons: BUNDLED

Time for a little Christmas packet with eight lessons to help celebrate Advent and Christmas!! Build your back pocket of lessons with fun, interactive lessons to help your students enjoy learning about the Catholic faith - lesson plans and faith concepts included. Intended for Grade 1/First Grade.

Content students are to understand:
Advent is a special religious season that prepares us for Christmas. The season begins four Sundays before Christmas.
St. Nicholas reminds us that Christmas is about giving gifts to others to show our love for them.
The candy cane is a symbol of Jesus. The shape is like a ā€œJā€ for Jesus. If you turn it upside down it is the staff of a shepherd. The red is a symbol of His blood and the white is a symbol of His goodness/purity.
Advent is about preparing our hearts for Jesus. Jesus wants us to serve others when they are in need or ask for help.
Advent is about doing kind acts/deeds for others. We must diligently try to think of things to do for our classmates, neighbours, and even our enemies.
The Christmas story is one of the most beloved in our faith. It is important to understand that Jesus was poor and although He is a king, He is not an earthly king, but a king of Heaven.
