Boats are a theme in my life of late.
To celebrate the Year of Faith, I created a craft for my second grade classes. This served as as my introductory lesson in explaining church years (ex. Marian Year, Year of the Family, Jubilee Year, Year of the Priest) to my students.
Here’s a photo of our finished product displayed on our prayer table:
The inspiration came from the Holy Spirit 100%. I simply used the resources I had available in the faculty room. Mostly colored paper and an AccuCut machine.Each child received their pieces in an envelope and arranged their display for me to review before gluing it all together. The hardest distinction was to have both the “H” and the cross in one. Here my “H” is an “I” and a “t.”
The background of each “poster” is actually a manila envelope. In it I included the explanation of the logo found here. My hope is that they’ll keep handouts and other materials about the Year of Faith in there all year long!
