I love providing my students at church with different ways to memorize their Catholic prayers. Each group is a little different - some already know the prayers, some just need a little practice to memorize the prayers and some need lots of help to memorize their prayers. Last year I created Catholic Prayers Lapbooks to help my students. They made these at the beginning of the year and took them home as a resource to help them. That way, we knew that every student had the correct words at home with them to be able to memorize their prayers. I also created Catholic Brag Tags to reward them when they memorized and recited their prayers. Both worked wonders for my class last year, but this year's group need some extra support. I created Catholic Prayer Puzzles to help them practice during class.HERE.
Supplies Needed:Printed Out Prayers
Scissors or Papercutter
Jumbo Popsicle Sticks
To Use this Product
There are two different options to use this product. One way would be to print out the prayer your students need to learn on cardstock and cut apart into strips. Then glue each strip onto a jumbo popsicle stick. This makes them durable but is also a little more time consuming.
If you are printing multiples of each prayer, you might want to write numbers or letters on the back of each set so that if students mix up the pieces with another group, they can easily sort them again.
Prayers Included:I tried to include several important Catholic prayers in addition to the six we teach our first graders. Hopefully that gives you a good variety, no matter what grade you are teaching.
-Sign of the Cross
-Angel of God (Prayer to my Guardian Angel)
-Blessing Before Meals
-Act of Contrition (5 versions)
-Hail Holy Queen
-St. Michael Prayer
-The Prayer of Fatima
