Catechists in Action – Nick Concludes His Lesson

November 9, 2011

Catechists in Action

In this segment of Catechists in Action, 5th grade catechist Nick Yonto wraps up his lesson on the Eucharist. Watch for the following as Nick:

  • invites the children to remember the story of the 2 disciples on the road to Emmaus and prods them to re-construct the story.
  • emphasizes how Jesus is recognized in the breaking of the bread and links the discussion to the BIG IDEA of his class: Eucharist.
  • invites the children imagine they were one of the disciples on the road to emmaus.
  • makes space for his aide to join in as a co-teacher.
  • has the children read from the text book one last time and has the children add the words REAL PRESENCE to their vocabulary list.

Questions

  • How do you integrate story-telling into your lessons?
  • How do you help your learners to use their imaginations to enter into the story?
  • How can you/do you utilize an aide in your lessons? Do you have a co-catechist? How does that work?

    90% of our catechetical year is basically a series of Bible stories told, drawn, acted out, and read from the Bible, with Catholic themes emphasized during discussion.

    How do you help your learners to use their imaginations to enter into the story?

    I get the kids to tell as much of the stories as they can. In many cases they can tell entire stories on their own.

    What did they do at stewardship? I’m interested in what that was/entails. Sounds interesting :)
