One of my favorite holidays to celebrate is St. Patrick's Day.
No, I am not Irish, but when I read about who Saint Patrick was
I began to love the day we celebrate him.
In teaching my students about St. Patrick
I read all about him first.
This book tells the tragic childhood of St. Patrick in a way
that isn't too scary for children.
It shows how he trusted in God even when he was all alone
and how he listened for God's voice.
It's a great story for children because St. Patrick's young life
is something that kids can have sympathy for.
After reading about St. Patrick we made our craft-
Snack time...A Shamrock for each child to remember
that there is one God, but three Persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Another great day rejoicing in all that God
can do in the life of an obedient child!
