CCD Troubles Again

I've been sitting here for hours trying to come up with my lesson plan for CCD tomorrow. I still have nothing. I always have such a hard time doing this. I worry that I won't actually teach them anything or I'll teach them something wrong, that I sit here for hours with nothing.

I teach 8th graders... It's my first yr doing so, actually, my first yr as a Catholic... I know how you feel. It is tough to capture their attention, and get something relevant across... Maybe something on Lent? One of the readings from Mass... a saint? and apostle?? a fave teaching from the 4 Gospels??

What grade?? good luck, cant wait to hear what you come up with!

I do K & 1st.

I came up with a presentation on the temptation of Jesus. I thought it would work because it is the reading and also works well with lent. I never really got through it though, I had them finish a project from last week which took the whole time since it was a short class because we went and said the rosary in the church.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
