To help my second graders in developing their understanding of our Catholic faith, I have created study guides for chapters of the Sadlier We Believe series. Each study guide highlights the main concepts of the chapter in an easy to read format.
Students are encouraged to read and/or discuss the study guide with their parents for a few minutes each evening. This not only prepares them for the chapter test, but it also gives them an opportunity to practice reading the religious terms (many which are above a second grade reading level.)
These study guides are not cute and fancy, but rather simple so students can focus on the concepts. Chapters included are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26.
Special emphasis is given to First Reconciliation and First Eucharist since they receive those sacraments in second grade at my school.
These study guides are editable in Microsoft Word to be tailored to fit your religious instruction needs.
Not sure they will work for you? Check out Chapters 1-4 which are available individually.
Be sure to also check out my Sadlier We Believe Grade 2 Tests which accompany these study guides!
