Create a Bulletin Board Lesson on Generosity by Using the We Must Share Our Blessings Display Activity.
Need an engaging lesson to help Catholic kids think about being generous to others? Try our We Must Share Our Blessings 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 learn that when we trust God and have faith in His promised salvation, we can be generous to others. When we use our free will to do charity, God is very pleased. Not only do we show others that they are important to us, but we show God that we love Him. There is no fear in giving away what we have because God will bless us and reward us in His own way for our charity towards others. The inspiration for this lesson is Mark 12:41-44.
How to Use the We Must Share Our Blessings Display Activity
This Religious Education lesson not only teaches kids about the power of listening and speaking to others 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 - a sample layout is provided.
Because this activity is designed for group use, it can comfortably accommodate a class of any size. And because just about everything you need is included in the lesson file, it is easy to deliver. Art supplies, a Bible, and materials to affix the display must be supplied separately. For instructors needing a bit of support, Scripture references, and CCC notations are provided.
