Here’s what Irene says about being a catechist of intermediate age children:
I also love working with intermediate children. I’ve taught fourth grade for a number of years and found the children so ready and willing to learn about the Catholic faith. They love doing posters, dioramas, role playing, group work…I even gave them opportunities to be catechists. Wow! That was an awesome experience! One particular unit of study on the Way of the Cross turned out to be something which I thought went beyond their years. They created the Way of the Cross with props, costuming, etc. but gave it a contemporary twist. It was amazing.
