Free Printable Stations of the Cross Coloring Booklet

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday of the Catholic liturgical calendar and continues for 40 days up to Easter. We try to imitate Jesus with prayer, fasting and alms-giving. Here are free printable Stations of the Cross coloring pages to guide lent devotions. Each year during Lent when our family was homeschooling, we drew images, one for each of the Station of the Cross, to use as a guide for prayer and devotion. We hung them at different places in our home or yard.  Free Lenten Devotional Booklet

Back to School, Valentines Day Unit on Mosaics

Coming back to school in January after the holiday can be dreary for kids, especially when the weather is wet and cold and days are shorter. This is a difficult but crucial time to keep educational momentum. Start the new year off with an engaging, interactive unit. Get kids actively involved explorating and learning. Use this unit for all ages and grades. Multisensory, cross-curricular lesson plans cover a spectrum of content. The unit focuses on mosaics. Mosaics are art forms in which murals are made using tiny tiles or pieces of paper cut in geometric shapes to create a picture. Mosaics are Persian in origin and are often seen in Turkey, Iran and Iraq. Making mosaics, kids learn math, science, patterns, shapes, art, social studies and design.  Use the book "St. Valentine" by Robert Sabuda as a starting point. Read more
