Kindergarten-September 26th Class

We had a great time in class today.  We colored a picture of St. Michael the Archangel and listened to a story about him from Catholic Children's Treasure Box Series #18.  The story told us about how God made all the angels and it described the battle between the good and bad angels led by St. Michael the Archangel.  The children were told that St. Michael the Archangel's feast day this Wednesday, September 29th.  If you'd like, you can click on the links and find craft ideas and coloring sheets.

We covered chapter 2, God Gives Us Light in our We Believe textbook.  We discussed how God loves us so much that he made the sun and moon to light our world.  We drew pictures in our books to show our favorite ways to enjoy the sun and the moon.  While we colored a worksheet about how God's gifts of the sun and rain create a rainbow, we listened to and sang a song thanking God for the sun and the moon.  In our Project Disciple portion of the class (page 34 in the textbook), we identified the things that give us light.

During circle time we listened to a story entitled "God Made the World" from the Catholic Children's Treasure Box series #19.  We learned that God made the world out of nothing so that we could enjoy it and all the wonderful things he gives us.  Afterwards, we prayed the Sign of the Cross and the Hail Mary together.  Flat Father Stanley chose his first friend of the year to visit.  We look forward to hearing all about his adventure during circle time next week.

We made a Jesus fish craft at the end of the class.  It was a fun little project for everyone.

Homework: Check your child's folder for this week's coloring pages and homework. Our homework is a coloring page that ties into what we learned in our textbook this week.  You will also find two brightly colored prayer cards paper clipped into your child's folder.  Please pray the Sign of the Cross and the Hail Mary with your child each day so he or she can learn these prayers.
This week's homework.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.  I look forward to seeing everyone in class next Sunday.  Our class is truly a delightful bunch of kids.  It is a pleasure to teach them!
