Great Ideas: Guess the Saint

From the TCT archives: a bulletin-board guessing game

To celebrate the saints in a way that includes both students and their families, we developed a “Guess the Saint” bulletin board. Each week a new clue is added about a particular saint, along with part of an illustration. The same information is posted in the weekly Parent Memo.

Students submit their guesses, and a winner is chosen at the end of the month. The winner receives a special prize, but all win as they discover and are inspired by a new saint every month.
