Bible Story Dominos (game)

2017-12-12T10:14:29.703-05:00



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.



Bible Story Dominos: Help your child's Bible knowledge with this game that requires players to match Bible story pictures. No reading required.



(image)
4 pages of dominos




Directions- Shuffle/mix up dominos and place them all face down on the table in one pile.

For a two player game, each player should draw 4 dominos at random, for a game with more players; each player should draw 3 dominos. Do not let the other players see your dominos.

The youngest player should go first by laying any domino on the table. In the typical game you'd lay a double (one with the same image in both squares, but I find it a tough rule to explain to the little ones and usually results in my having to look at their cards).

Player two tries to lay a domino on the table with an image that matches either end of the domino. If the player cannot go, they pick a domino from the pile and miss their turn. The next player may try to match the first domino image or try to match the end of the second domino image. Only one domino may be played per turn. Should the last domino be drawn with no play possible, the player passes and tries again on his/her next turn.

Play continues until one player has used all his dominos or until no one can play. The player with no dominos or with the least number of remaining dominos wins.


Dominos- Print out on card stock and trim. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.

Honor Thy Parents- Back Talk Game

2017-12-05T15:32:29.912-05:00



(image)


If you love me you will keep my commandments. John 14:15

One of the ways you show that you love God is to obey your parents and honor them with respect.

What is the fourth commandment? Honor thy father and thy mother. (Catholic)


This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.



(image)

Back Talk: The object of this game is for the children to honor their parent’s requests in the proper way. Print out the three sets of cards. One set is what a parent would say to their child (these cards are in red). Another set is a disrespectful response from a child to the parent. Another set of cards is what the child should say to their parent. Shuffle the cards and deal them completely out. Have the players put their cards face up in from of them so that others can see and read their cards and help them if necessary. By taking turns, have one player start with what a parent would say and read it out loud. After they have read the card, they place it in the middle of the table face up. The rest of the players then check their cards to see if they have one that says what a disrespectful child would say to their parent in response in this situation. If they have the card, they read it out loud and place it face up next to the first card. Then the players look at their cards to see if they have what a child should say to their parent. If they have the card, they read it out loud and place it face up next to the second card. Players can also play in teams so they can help each other answer the questions.


Directions- Print out Directions and cut it out.

Are You Ready To Clean Up Your Act? (game)

2017-12-04T08:28:57.538-05:00



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.


(image)
Are You Ready To Clean Up Your Act?- We're kidding ourselves, and we know it. And yet we carry on – thinking we are following all the commandments and meanwhile making up our own rules. Why is it so hard for people to follow the 6th commandment: Thou shall not commit adultery? (Catholic) It is harder than you think or is it? In this game players must answer correctly questions about the 6th commandment or they are sent to the bathtub to clean up their act.



Place your marker on START. Players spin the spinner and follow the directions. If you land on the picture of the bar of soap the player to your left draws a card and reads it out loud. On each card is a question about the 6th commandment. If you answer the question correctly, you stay where you are. If you are not correct, you must move to the bathtub and clean up your act. On your next turn you are asked another question. The player cannot get out of the bathtub until they answer a question correctly. If you answer a question correctly, you may resume your position on the game board. If a player lands on a rubber duck, they may change places with the leader. The first player to FINISH wins.


Directions- Print out Directions and cut out. Glue on front of file folder.

Game Board- Print out Game Board, trim, and glue on the inside of the file folder. Make sure the directions are on the front of the file folder. Laminate or cover file folder with clear contact paper to make it last.

Game Cards- (Questions are in MS Word and can be changed easily to whatever you want. Feel free to change the questions or use your own.) Print Game Cards out on card stock. Cut out Game Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last. *Use only the Game Cards that are age appropriate.

Spinner- Make Spinner according to directions.

Crafty Crafters: Angel

2017-11-22T08:25:38.946-05:00



(image)

So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for “Mary and the Angel”?


Here is a craft I make with my students using cupcake liners:


(image)
books.google.com- Crafts from Your Favorite Bible Stories by Kathy Ross, pages 16 & 17

Jacob’s Ladder

Just make the angel that is in this craft using cupcake liners and construction paper. You can also make the angel into a magnet by putting sticky-backed magnets on the back of the angel.

*To make it easier for young children just have them fold one white cupcake liner in half (like pictured above) and attach with glue.

Prior to class I cut out the little head. It is so small that my first graders have a hard time cutting it out. I also use a paper plate to show the students how to fold the cupcake liners.



Please comment so I can add the link to your blog to this post. We would love to see what you do!

Act of Contrition- Cut out strips and glue strips of the Act of Contrition in the proper order on a piece of construction paper. (For younger students you can do this together as a group activity.) You can also play this as a game by dividing the class into teams and give each team the strips of the Act of Contrition. See which team can put it in the proper order the fastest.Act of Contrition Board Game- For 2 Players or 2 TeamsThe idea is to answer questions about the Act of Contrition so players can roll the dice and move their pieces up and down the road attempting to capture their opponent’s pieces. The form of capture is unique because the captured piece is not immediately removed but instead is placed under the capturing piece. The capturing piece is placed on top of the captured piece to form a stack (if you capture an opponent’s piece, their playing piece is placed under yours). On his next turn the capturing player starts to move the stack of pieces back along the road towards his home position the number of spaces indicated by the throw count. When the capturing player reaches the home position the captured piece is removed from the board.Puzzle:Act of Contrition- (word search)Worksheet:Act of Contrition (worksheet)- Fill out the worksheet using the word bank.[...]
