I was looking for a way to add in more handwriting practice for my first grader that would tie into the liturgical year. I borrowed one of the Seasonal Missalettes that we use at daily Mass and am pulling the Responsorial Psalms for the days I want to add onto. (I guess I could also use my Magnificats, but I generally leave them safe in the wrapper until the start of the month.) I am also going to have all my children write out the Baltimore Catechism answers to help with retention.
Does anyone have ideas for things to do about the saints? We read about the lives of the saints on Fridays and are very lucky to have a priest that will give a short bio about whichever saint's Feast Day it is every day at Mass. But I would love to find way to do more.
