Two day weeks are perfect for pretty much one thing and one thing only- mini units! I actually didn't have a plan for our Thanksgiving week mini-unit until oh sometime late last night, when my friend Erika at Raising (& Teaching) Little Saints shared her printable Christ The King resources. I took her packet of resources and divided them up between kids and also prepared activities to have out all week.
Discussed as a whole group and then placed on school room shelf. Kylee and I will play Eye-Spy with these cards later this week. You could also make 2 sets and play a memory/matching game. I am going to have Aidan and Caleb write sentences using these words tomorrow for language/writing.
Included in the packet is a handwriting practice sheet (Caleb), two coloring sheets (Kylee), a maze, and a cut/paste activity. There was also a picture copying sheet and blank grid. Aidan really enjoyed copying the cartoon Christ the King. I love the puffed out cheeks in concentration!!
When Aidan was finished copying the image, I mounted the strips and placed them on the shelf as a puzzle for the week.
None of these works will be out for long (Advent next week, seriously??), but they are already sparking conversation and a deeper understanding of our faith which is always an A-1 priority goal!
