Our first week with our Montessori inspired religious education curriculum didn’t go quite as planned–half of us were out sick with the stomach flu all week. So, needless to say, the room that we were supposed to unpack and set up to use didn’t get finished, and the work didn’t get set out early enough. So, this week was a very brief introduction and next week we’ll hopefully have the room set up to start really working (right in time for Advent!).
Our first week was on the Holy Family, in preparation for the Advent lessons on the birth of Jesus. Here are a few pictures of what we did get to do (for some reason, Jedi isn’t in the pictures. He did get to work in the room, but I guess I didn’t have the camera on hand when he was in there. )
If you want any of the sets of sequencing and 3 part cards that I created for this week’s lessons, here they are for downloading. Please do not sell or redistribute these (you can blog about them and show pictures of your children using them of course, but I would appreciate a link back. 🙂 )
