Two Lenten activities for each of the following age groups Grades 2-3, 4-6, and 7-8. Also includes Teacher Pages (following the activity pages) with answers to questions, plus suggestions for discussion.
Here are sets of 3 activities for 3 age groups: Grades 4-6, 7-8 and 9-12. During the month of May the Church’s daily readings include most of the Book of Acts, so the activities are partly based on that book. The activities are intended as seasonal supplements to your regular church school curriculum, but it would be fine to use them at any time of year.
Our children are faced with many challenges that require them to stand up for their Orthodox faith. We as parents need to discover as many resources as possible to assist our children in making positive choices. One such resource is the book Brave Like a Saint by Iakovina.
Here are three sets of discussion activities based on three of the weekly bulletin inserts provided by the Department of Christian Education of the Orthodox Church in America. They all involve saints commemorated by the Church during the month of October, and provide guidance for teen and adult discussion groups to think about these “fall saints” more deeply.
