When the Saints March In
Although we spent so much time preparing for our Saints Alive Fair last week, we couldn't let this beautiful Holy Day go by without reminding ourselves of the holy people of the past whose lives & prayers can help lead us to heaven.
After attending Mass together as a class, our munchkins did some fantastic writing, asking the saints of heaven to pray for us. (It was a great opportunity to work on the /ay/ sound with a fun rhyming game before doing our writing activities.)
Then, they had to chance to create some fun little "saintly" dolls. Everyone had the chance to make two of their favorite saints...
St. Mary, St. Therese, St. Michael, St. Francis
St. Patrick & St. Brigid
As a special treat at the end of the day, each student received a pack of saint trading cards. It was so fun to watch the munchkins explore each saint and trade favorites with their friends.
May the Saints of Heaven Pray for Us!
Until next time...
