This lesson is dedicated to review. It includes a board game with rules and pieces and a review booklet that goes through everything we've talked about this year.
- The Messiah
- The Gospel of the Kingdom
- Note Sheets for the videos
- Heaven & Earth
- Image of God
- The Son of Man
- The Covenants
- The Day of the Lord
- The Temple
- All of the summary videos for the books covered (Ezra, Nehemiah, Zechariah, Haggai, and Malachi) can be found here.
As noted in the home lesson outline: This video offers a different viewpoint on the tests of Israel. The one in the book is more faithful to the scriptural tradition, so keep that in mind.
First Communion & Reconciliation
The home lessons for 2nd graders are the lessons from the program "Blessed", produced by Dynamic Catholic. Not only are the books filled with beautiful and insightful illustrations, but the program comes with a free online leader guide and multiple animated episodes that go along with each lesson. The program consists of two books, one that walks through First Reconciliation and one that walks through First Communion. We go through First Reconciliation in the first semester of the year and First Communion in the second. We ask that you be diligent in completing your lessons in the month that they are assigned. The kids review them the following month during class.
Our hope in using this program is that you as parents are supplied with as many resources as necessary to do these lessons at home with your child and have them resound deeply with them as they prepare for First Holy Communion. Here is a schedule for which lessons are assigned for each month. I will also include a link for each session so you can access the free leader guides and videos. You can also purchase the DVD's and physical copies of the Leader Guides if you would rather have those by following this link.
- August: Session 1: You are Blessed!
- September: Session 2: The Best-Version-of-Yourself & Session 3: God Sent Jesus to Save Us
- October: Session 4: Forgiveness and Healing
- November: Session 5- Your First Reconciliation
- December: Session 6- It's Only the Beginning
