Lesson 3 - Baptism/Sin - This lesson reviews the story of Adam and Eve and original sin. We then focus on Baptism, the first Sacrament of Initiation. We also introduce free will verse instinct and how are actions are a way for us to "yes" or "no" to God.
Lesson 3 - Creation/Original Sin - This ditto focuses on God, our Creator. As the children answer these questions they will learn of the great love our Lord has for us and how we can witness this love through the beauty of Creation.
Lessons 5 & 6 - Great Commandments - Jesus gave us the greatest commandment. This ditto helps the children separate the 10 Commandments into those that focus loving the Lord and those that focus on loving our neighbor.
Lesson 1 - Mary and the Saints - This lesson highlights the Blessed Mother and her role in the Church as well as the other holy men and women of God. By their example, we encourage the children to strive towards holiness and greatness in all they do. *For those who don't already know the Hail Mary, we introduce this prayer tonight. If the children don't already know this prayer, they should start working on it!
Lesson 3 - Creation/Original Sin - This ditto should be used directly after reading the story of Creation. This ditto highlights some of the things the Lord created and explains how they differ from us humans.
Lesson 6 - Sin/10 Commandments - To make sure the children really know the 10 Commandments this last ditto encourages them to write the commandments in their own words. This can be done as a class encouraging class discussion and participation!
