Catechists are always looking for ways to get parents talking with their kids about what they learned in faith formation. Here’s a simple idea I came up with that can help you to review the main points of your lesson and to provide parents with something they can ask their kids about when they pick them up. It’s a half sheet of paper that you can distribute to kids near the end of class. Have them fill in the theme/focus/big idea of the lesson in the top box and the vocabulary words they learned in the lower box. Kids can hand this to their parents when they get picked up, and parents can ask them to share what they learned. Here’s an example of what a fifth-grade student might fill in for chapter 17 of Finding God:
Here is a PDF of the handout with two copies on one sheet so that you can save paper when copying.
