St. Patrick’s Day Lap Book
“The St. Patrick’s Day Project Pack includes a 9-page Research Guide and 17 hands on activities that cover information about St. Patrick, the man, how the holiday started, symbols and traditions of the holiday, a brief description of the country of Ireland and much more! Everything your student needs to complete a lapbook about St. Patrick’s Day.”
I downloaded it last night, and it looks ok, though I think I’ll be making a few little modifications (i.e. using definitions from our Catholic Children’s Dictionary for some of the Vocabulary Words — Saint, Mass, etc.– to keep it simple, and not to confuse my children.). I think we may use the Catholic Mosaic Stained glass coloring page for the cover… We’ll see how it goes.
Even if you don’t have time to make it this year, you can always download it for later!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
