What do You See in Church?

Teaching kids about what they’ll see inside the church when they attend mass is so important.  I have some worksheets and activities that can help teach or review what they’ll see inside the church!

To make it easier for little ones to understand what is going on during mass, it’s vital that they understand the items that they will see while there.  Use the pages as you walk around church explaining the items or after a tour of the church.  This will help them to feel more comfortable and know their way around the church.

To get elementary kids to participate in mass or even become altar servers, it’s key for them to know all the components used during mass and what they’ll see and use in church.  Their understanding of these items will allow them to be interested on what’s going on during the mass.

Have the kids match up the name of the item found inside the church to that item.

For big kids, you want to keep them coming to mass and being able to understand the elements used during mass or just seen inside the church makes them feel more welcomed.

Take the kids to church and write down the items that they can identify in church and on the sheet.

The more kids know about what they’ll see in church and used during mass, the more interested and happy they will be.  It increases their participation.

You can find these worksheet and activity packs in my Shop to help teach or review the items found inside the church (click on each image to view what’s included in each pack or add to your cart here)….

 

 

You can also find these games….

COMING SOON!

I hope this helps and gives you some ideas to help the kids understand what’s inside the church!

God Made Me….

Last week, my class and my daughter’s class worked on a lesson for creation.  She did a cut and paste worksheet that I made.  Here are some pictures of her kids working on the page and enjoying it!

Coloring….

Cut and Paste….

All done!

It is read like God gave me ears to listen to his creation and God gave me a heart to love his creation.  So this page covers the 5 senses as used in creation and makes learning about it fun!

If you’re interested in this cut and paste worksheet, that also include the answer key, you can get it by signing up for my newsletter.  It’s an exclusive for subscribers and you’ll receive the password to enter the “For Subscribers” page with your first newsletter.
