Emmanuel Books Kindergarten Religion Lesson Plan PDF, 37 pages (32 weeks) Kindergarten
Twenty years in the making, we present to you our lesson plans. These brand new lessons plans are born from the experience we have obtained in reviewing thousands of books and consulting with hundreds of families over these past twenty years. We still homeschool our youngest three children and have successfully graduated the older four. One of our children is currently attending Christendom College and her three older brothers have graduated from Christendom College and Thomas Aquinas College. They are now gainfully employed or attending graduate school. We heartily believe in homeschooling as a viable and preferable way to educate.
Grateful for the experience to tailor each child’s curriculum to meet their individual needs we want to pass on the blessings we have gained. In an effort to help parents customize their child’s curriculum we offer individual subject lesson plans. We often had to tweak lesson plans to move ahead in some subjects while slowing down in others. By having them laid out by subject you will find more options to pick and choose from, to find what works best matching curriculum to each child’s learning style and stage of development.
We believe that Kindergarten is all about joy, discovery and wonder. Therefore you will find in this 32 week day-by-day lesson plan that provides an inspiring and engaging year with our beautiful Catholic faith. The lesson plan uses the threefold study of Catholic Catechism, lives of the saints, and Salvation History. Therefore, you will see that this course of study includes a “framework text,” which utilizes the most important Bible stories to help your child begin to know Jesus in a personal way. You will mesh this by coloring books and manipulatives, all of which reinforce and present these Bible stories in a concrete manner and teach each of the lessons in an illustrative and narrative manner. You will begin a simple, age-appropriate and accessible introduction to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. There are also suggestions to begin learning Bible verses each week to add to your child’s memory work, as well as learning by heart the first Catholic prayers. And lastly, you will spend time reading and familiarizing your children with the lives of the saints as well as hymns.
