On December 5th, 2009, Maria will celebrating her First Reconcilliation. She has been attending classes at our church and we have been preparing her in her Religion classes at home. I would like to share some of the things that we have been doing in order to prepare her for this wondeful sacrament.
We are working on a First Confession Lapbook and are using some of the activities from the blogpost on First Reconcilliation from the blog: I blog, therefore I am. We especially like the File Folder game, which Maria is working on making as I type.
The following is a video clip that I found on the above mentioned website.
We are using the following books to help with preparation:
Catholic Prayer Book for Children
My First Catechism
My First Holy Communion (it has a great section on sin and confession)
Living the Ten Commandments for Children
Going to Confession
