It has been a joy to work with so many of you as we start this new school year! This month, I want to highlight some of the most popular resources and where you can find them.
1) Parent Newsletters: Parents want to know what their children are learning. When teaching the Faith, this can also be a good opportunity to share with them the beauty and depth of Catholic teaching. To help you with this, we offer Parent Newsletters for every session that you can send back with the students. These include what the students learned, questions parents can ask their children to reinforce the material, as well as prayers and meditations to really help the message sink in!
2) Parish Customization Guide: Every parish grade has about 33 Sessions, but for those parishes who don’t meet that often, this guide is for you. It lays out which sessions you can skip first without jeopardizing the core of the curriculum. If you need to, you can plan for 18 sessions.
3) Saint Day Resources and Gospel Lessons: On our Liturgical Pacing Page we have a whole host of resources to bring the seasons into your classes. We have our Sunday Gospel Lessons, which give you full interactive lessons for every Sunday Gospel for both lower and upper elementary ages. There are also monthly resources, including Rosary activities for October and a packet for Advent. We have St. Therese of the Child Jesus on October 1st and many more leading up to Blessed Chiara Luce Badano on the 28th.
If you haven’t checked out these resources yet, please explore the site and see how to make your planning easier!
