  1. Hi Katie,
    I'm a third grade teacher in a Catholic School and I just found your blog. I'm going to attempt to do the All Saints Day art with them. I was curious if you have any ideas on teaching parables.
    Thanks for any help!

    1. Hi Jill! I'm so glad that you are finding some things that will be useful in your classroom! I hope that the All Saints Day art project goes well- I'd love to see pictures of how they turn out! I actually don't have any activities on parables- that is a content area that I don't cover in 5th grade. I will keep it in mind when I am looking for ideas to create new activities, though. That could be fun! Thanks for your comment!

    1. Hi Cindy- That picture from this lent post is just a display on my kitchen table. I have kept a bowl of Scrabble pieces on my table for years- I think they are pretty, and they are a great conversation starter/something for people to play with when they sit at the table. This Lent, I added a pretty wood board, a crown of thorns and Stations of the Cross Cards. from Blessed is She (The cards are now sold out). Hope that helps!

  5. Hi Katie,
    I love your blog! It's been so helpful with my fourth graders! Wondering if you have anything for the Feast of Christ the King?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Marissa! Thanks! I'm so glad its been helpful! Unfortunately, I don't have any posts currently that are specifically about Christ the King. I do have this song playlist, so you could listen to that with them while drawing or coloring images of Christ the King. I also think this would be a great weekend to do Lectio Divina with the Mass Readings. Sorry I'm not more help!

  6. Hi Katie, do you have word clouds for each season or just Lent - these resources are super!

    1. Hi! Thanks! I think I only have a word cloud for Lent...but that would be a great project to add to my list! I do have signs & symbols coloring pages with images and words for each season. You can find those individually under each category above, or all together in the first link called "Liturgical Year Coloring Book." Thanks!

  8. Hello Katie!

    Stumbled on your site during a google search looking for material to teach my children catechism. I love the material you have made available to us freely. Thank you for all the hardwork and love I know you must have put into this. God bless you for this!

  10. Hi Katie, I love all these resources you have! Thank you so much. This will be my first year teaching PREP to first graders. I am looking for some type of liturgical calendar that they can color the week we are in when they are in class with the appropriate color for the season. Any suggestions?
    Thanks again.
