PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 526 page packet! It will be a creative addition to your classroom and school! As Catholic School teachers, ours is a very important job! We want our students to LOVE learning about our faith. This means we have to make our lessons engaging! We simply cannot have religion class be mainly comprised of a workbook and lectures!

This packet will have you using materials in class that will have your students learning about their faith in a fun way! I am a language arts teacher, but I make a conscious effort to incorporate faith into what I do in the classroom. These materials help to do that! You could use one a week. Your students will look forward to it.

So this packet is for any teacher that teaches in a Catholic School! It will speak to your students and meet them where they are. The kids will get a kick out of the Readers' Theaters and activities. And you will have rubrics and activities that will serve as super bulletin boards.

In addition to activities you can use at any time, I have included an entire packet for Catholic Schools' Week. You can use this in your own classroom or for the whole school. Regardless, this packet should be a blessing to you. It was created from my heart for my students to honor our God. It is a WORD DOCUMENT, so that you can make any changes to it that fit your needs. It's a zipped file, so there are no thumbnails to preview. You won't be sorry!

It includes the following:
Post-Song Reflection Printable “What Is God Saying To Me Through This Song”
