Create a Bulletin Board Lesson Using the We Must Rejoice for Christ Is Coming Display Activity.
Need a unique lesson to help celebrate Gaudete Sunday? Try our We Must Rejoice for Christ Is Coming Display Activity, which is perfect for a CCD or Religious Education class. Not only does it incorporate group discussion as a teaching tool, but it can accommodate any number of students.
This CCD lesson can help children to keep Jesus at the center of the Christmas celebration and encourage kids to sing in preparation of celebrating Christ's nativity. When we sing Christmas carols (hymns), we are proclaiming the birth of Christ to others. Hymns are songs based on Sacred Scripture; many times, they are used in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
As part of this activity, learners will identify their favorite Christmas carol. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Luke 3:10-18.
We Must Rejoice for Christ Is Coming Display Activity
This Religious Education lesson not only teaches kids about rejoicing during the advent season but it also creates a unique display. Teachers may use the completed pieces to decorate a classroom, bulletin board, hallway, or learning area.
To use the lesson, first print the materials out to accommodate the number of students. Next, prepare the pieces as suggested in the instructions. Then, hold your class discussion using the lesson sheets for guidance. Finally, create the display as directed - see the sample layout shown.
