Month of the Rosary - Making Rosaries to Share

For October's art project, we decided on making rosaries for missions and people who live in my mother in law's home. We made rosaries years ago for missions, using the chord rosaries, and enjoyed sharing our rosaries with many people. I knew this next set of kids would get into the fun of designing patterns of bead colors.

Prayer Booklet for Sunday School

I have a few kids that memorize everything easily, then some others that need a little help. A visual aid can be a big help. I made flash cards last year, but thought I would send home something more tangible with my Sunday School kids to work on this important prayer.
Every Catholic should have a version memorized for nightly review of their conscious, and prayerful recitation in their confession.

O my God,
I am heartily sorry for
having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins,
because I dread the loss of heaven,
and the pains of hell;
but most of all because
they offend Thee, my God,
Who are all good and
deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve,
with the help of Thy grace,
to confess my sins,
to do penance,
and to amend my life. Amen

We have been discussing how sin dirties our clean soul (white and sparkling from baptism) so I am going to have them smudge up this shirt for effect.
 For this page, they are going to red circle with line through the sins.

The rest they will color. *
Most the kids in my class this year are good with their handwriting.
Since writing something helps get into memory, I will have them copy mine.

*Most of the color pictures are from St. Anne's color pages
which I use most Sunday school classes
