  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!

  2. Hi Katie, I just loved your site. Thank you for sharing, especially the ones related to the season. I am very appreciative.

  3. Hello Katie, please explain your Lenten table idea with the "cards" in a bowl with Scrabble pieces. Thanks, Cindy

    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!

  4. Hi Katie,
    I am really really glad I have found your blog. I am an Assistant Head in a Church school in Malta, i am also a catechist and an adolescent and youth minister in my parish. Keep up your good work!

  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!

  7. Hello Katie,

    I have just stumbled across your website, obviously the work of the Holy Spirit!

    It is AMAZING! You are AMAZING!

    Thank you for sharing your talent, knowldge, wisdom and passion for handing on the Faith!


  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.

    1. Hi Tina! That is so exciting that this is your first year with your first graders! I have been thinking and looking for the right fit for you, and I have a couple of suggestions.
      This site has a liturgical wheel that could be colored in for the seasons. You could hang it in the classroom or keep them in a notebook or folder and have the students color in when the season changes. She also has a blank wheel with squares that could be colored in each for each day of the year. It doesn't have any labels, though, so you would have to do some work making it ready for use with 1st graders.
      Liturgical Calendars
      I found many other calendars that would work, but unfortunately, none of them were updated for the 2017-2018 Liturgical Year. :(
      Another option that might be more age appropriate would be to use the general Liturgical Year calendar and color in for the seasons, but then have the students create a calendar using pipe cleaners and pony beads. You would need to have purple, green, white, and red pony beads available, and each week the students would discuss the color of that Sunday and add it to the pipe cleaner loop. When the year is up, you can twist the ends together and have a circle of beads, one for each week, that shows all the liturgical seasons.
      Hope that helps! I'm sure you'll come up with just the right activity!

  11. HELLO Anne,
    I am a first-time catechist in my local parish for 4th-grade youngsters and your ideas of teaching have come in handy. I have always introduced my students with your activities, which they truly adore. With gratitude, My team and I want to say thanks a billion for these lovely activities because each generation has their style of learning.

  12. Thanks so much for sharing all these activities and resources! It makes religion class and our Catholic faith come alive, interesting and interactive for me and the students.

  13. Thank You Katie.
    I love your ideas, expressions, but most of all I LOVE YOUR JOY. You are so very generous in allowing use of your ideas for classes and YM. I've been doing different versions of the Resurrection EGGS for nearly 10 years now, and this year I wanted to change it up again. Love your versions! Many of your pages have been collected to my 'Things To Do, Possibly' list. With appreciation. Angie.

  14. Hi Katie. I have enjoyed teaching the 7 sacraments from your handouts. How the children loved them! I am preparing children age 8 to 10 to prepare for First Holy Communion and I would help to use your worksheets. Please Katie send me some more ideas on how to get the message across. God bless

  15. Hi Katie! I am a big fan of yours. I teach middle school and you have amazing ideas. Thank you for sharing them.
