Weekly Advent Reflections {Editable Assignments for Google Classroom}


Forgive this for being a bit "late" but I literally just made these for my own students and thought that maybe they could help another teacher or DRE or parent ;) These slides are intended to help guide a student through a little reflection and prayer based on the Advent theme each week. 

Each week, the slides include:
-A short video and included questions on that video
-The reference for the Sunday Gospel of the week and a few reflection questions
-An connection between the Advent theme of the week and beauty- examining art, music, or poetry
-A closing prayer

I would expect this to take my 7th or 8th graders about a half an hour, or it is something that could be spread out one piece at a time over the week. You could certainly edit to simplify or beef it up to stretch to older or younger students. 


These were created in Google Slides because I will share them directly to Google Classroom for my students, but you also can download them and edit in PowerPoint to use or share as you need. 

I also just added a new section under the Sharing the Faith tab with all of the other editable Google Classroom assignments I've made available on the blog. ;)

A few notes: 
-These assignments were created in Google Slides with the intention of being assigned in Google Classroom. You can certainly download them in PowerPoint and send them through email, or whatever tool you are using to communicate with your students.

-They are totally editable. You just have to make a copy on Google Slides or download to PowerPoint before making any changes. Delete, change, add-- make them work for your kids. (If you request edit access on these files, I won't be able to grant it because it would change the master slides for everyone. You have to make a copy to make changes.)

***All of the resources needed for the tasks are readily available- like public websites or docs I've created. If you share the slides with your students, make sure that they can access all of the links as well. For example, if you have a closed Google Domain (many schools are) they will not be able to open any of the files I have linked because I am outside of their domain. You will have to make a copy, save in your own Google Drive, and link. (Unfortunately, I get A LOT of student access requests to docs shared by their teachers, but I can't even email them back because of domain permissions. It breaks my teacher heart to not be able to help them- so if you are in a closed Google Domain, please keep that in mind!)***

  6. Wow, beautiful! Thank you, I showed the bible project last week Hope. Oh can't for tomorrow afternoon to share this with my class. We read the daily Gospel reading (bell work, read silently, come up with a word or phrase and then we read as a class and they share their word/phrass).
