This week we covered two chapters in our text book, chapter 18, Jesus Teaches and Helps Us, and chapter 19, Jesus Wants Us to Love. In chapter 18 the children learned that Jesus went many places and taught people about God and helped those in need. In chapter 19 the children learned that Jesus wants us to show love to one another. We talked about ways we can show others that we care about them. We also discussed how we can pray to Jesus and ask Him to help those we love.
During circle time the children listened to the the chapter stories for both chapters. First they listened to the story of the loaves and fishes and then they heard a story about St. John Bosco. The children are doing very well with learning the Our Father and Hail Mary. Please continue to work on these prayers with your child every day.
Our craft this week was a Jesus fish sun catcher. The children were VERY quiet as they carefully strung the beads onto the pipe cleaner that became a Jesus fish. When the job was done we had a classroom filled with very colorful Jesus fish sun catchers.
Since Lent began this week, the children were all given a cross with many different sections. Each day they do a good deed during Lent, they can color in one section of the cross. By Easter, the cross should look like a colorful stained glass window.
This week's homework is to pray the Hail Mary and Our Father every day.
I hope you all have a great week. See you Sunday!
