Help with lesson planning please
« on: December 10, 2011, 11:05:23 PM »
I teach the 4-5 year olds at our parish. This is my first year teaching and I want to do a project with them that might seem slightly ambitious. I bought some cheap wood frames at the craft store. I want to have the children glue/affix/decoupage icons for each week of Great Lent around the edges each week ending in the Resurrection in the center. I will be starting this project with them in late January so we can be about a week ahead. I am due with our 5th child March 13/15. But I haven't gone past 38 weeks in the past. So there is a very good chance that I may not make it past the first few days of March. Then I won't be returning to teach until after Pascha. I need to get everything prepped and ready for my sub now because January is rapidly approaching.

Could anyone please link me to some nice icons for each week? I need icons that will shrink down nicely to about 1.5" square since these are small frames. I want to make sure that the icons are still recognizable when shrunk to size.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
