First Confession

I have second class this year. It’s the first time I’ve ever taught this class level as I have spent the past few years in infants. So for those of us who have second class, we are in for a busy few weeks. Hopefully through sharing resources, we can cut down on a bit of the workload.

First of all, I will include the prayers that are needed for the First Confession ceremony. I’ve also included the general mass responses that are needed for any mass as a lot of them have changed slightly over the past number of years. Click on the download button below to get them. You can give them to each child or display them on the projector, however you see fit.

Chinese New Year

2016 is the Year of the Monkey! The Chinese New Year is a really fun topic with lots of integration possibilities across the curriculum. You can cater the activity suggestions below to suit your classes level and students needs. I always do a Chinese New Year Parade in school to celebrate the culmination of all of our work. It’s great way to end the topic of work!! :)
