School Year, Church Year
Customs and Decorations for the Classroom.
Coloured leaves in September, pumpkins in October, Advent wreaths to the birth of Jesus in December and snowflakes in January. Hearts in February, Shamrocks in March and Easter bunnies in April. But why? Do you ever long for something a little different and think, “Instead, maybe I could. . . . ”? This amazing new book will walk you through the school year, give you a crash course on the Church’s year and suggest customs you can use with children of all ages from Advent to Easter, autumn to summer. You’ll learn how to set up and decorate a classroom that will form your students in the tradition of biblical and liturgical images as well as how to make spectacular bulletin board and table top displays. You’ll also have an invaluable resource to turn to when questions arise.
