Creating a Rosary Notebook
Towards the end of October after a discussion with our tweens and younger children, we've been enjoying a different approach to our Faith lessons, notebooking. Some ideas are quickly pulled together, some take a little more searching. I thought I'd share here in the desire to help anyone who may be searching for ideas for Faith notebooks too.
That Resource Site, Celebrate the Month of the Holy Rosary, there were many links here we didn't have time to use including beautiful notebooking pages.
The first two notebooking sheets were a Rosary handout sheet that included an overview of the mysteries, of both words and pictures and a snippet of the history of the rosary. For this particular notebook we used paper from Catholic Stationery.
Next we created Rosary mini-books. Mini-books and I have a love-hate relationship but we finally managed to cut and staple.
We then coloured one of Charlotte's lovely colouring pages of Our Lady of the Rosary.
For colouring pictures of the decades of the Rosary visit Jenn for beautiful pictures and links.
We finished with counting and colouring this simple rosary worksheet. (click on image and copy, link is not working at present)
We finally managed to print and laminate The Bookworm's Rosary Three Part Cards. A big hit, and all the children spent time matching pictures, pictures and words and sorting into mysteries.
Other ideas to encourage participation in the Rosary with little ones include Rosary Boxes and Rosary Roses. The older ones may enjoy making a Rosary. A guaranteed hit for the Month of the Holy Rosary would be to make an edible Rosary.
Stay tuned as we have more faith notebooking to share.
