"Hoppy" to Know Our Prayers

This year's theme for our K-1 RE class is.....Frogs!
As you can see above, we are using a similar bulletin boar to track and recognize our students as they memorize their prayers.  In our local Archdiocese, the students memorize the Sign of the Cross, Prayer Before Meals, Prayer After Meals and Prayer to One's Guardian Angel in Kindergarten.  In First Grade, they memorize the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be and the Prayer at the Stations of the Cross.
On our first class, each child created a frog prayer book with their four required prayers, to take home a work on memorizing during the week.  When they come to class, they recite a prayer to a teacher and earn a frog prize and we put their name on a frog and post it to the bulletin board.
Free printables for the Lily pads are here , just write in the names of the prayers you are tracking, and the frog prayer books will be posted soon.
