Great Ideas: God’s Message Today

God’s Message Today

My second-grade students each keep a writing journal. After returning from weekly Mass, the children are given the writing prompt: “God’s message today is….” They each write a paragraph about our pastor’s homily and complete the entry with an illustration. This activity keeps them focused at Mass and provides an opportunity for my students to share their thoughts about what they’ve learned at Mass.
