Great Idea: Celebrating Mary

Celebrating Mary

Each day during October, I introduce an image of Mary to the class. I use images that my students colored from a book, but photos of the statues or paintings could be used. After telling the story of the image, I go to a large map to show the students the location of the country in which that image of Mary is found. As I place my hand on the country, we pray a Hail Mary for the people of that country and neighboring areas.
