Teaching Little Ones the Prayers of the Rosary

Hello to All!
I am so excited to be a part of this new collaborative blog for teachers searching for religious materials to share with their students! When Charlotte approached me about being a part of this, I did not hesitate to say "Yes!" It is so difficult to find age appropriate religious material for our littlest learners and I am so happy to share my ideas!

In the Catholic church, October is the month of the rosary. I KNOW that I am super late on sharing this rosary packet, but before I post and share any of my materials, I try it out in my classroom; working out the bugs and mistakes I USUALLY make in my original prototypes! :)

The rosary is such a MYSTERY to little ones. In our school, we pray a living rosary at the beginning of October and then are required to pray at least one decade of the rosary sometime during the month. I want my students to understand and begin to enjoy this beautiful prayer, so I have broken the prayers down into chunks and we take them one prayer at a time and discuss what each prayer means. I assigned a symbol to each prayer: A house and hands for OUR FATHER, Mary and Baby Jesus for HAIL MARY, and a dove for the GLORY BE.

I found a beautiful coloring page of the rosary on the Catholic Mom website. You can find that coloring sheet HERE. I also used Charlotte's BEAUTIFUL drawing of our Holy Mother, Mary in the packet, too!

Peace and blessings,


  1. Cindy,

    I love your post! This is sooo awesome! Thank you for sharing!


  2. Cindy,
    This is so awesome! I can't wait to use it during the month of May when we pray a decade of the rosary daily in honor of Mary!

  3. Hi! I lost your thread on the TpT sellers forum but would love to share with you and your readers about some of the freebies at my TpT store for various holidays. For example there is one there for Fall (Help Your Family Fall in Love with Jesus) and 2 for Christmas (Advent). Feel free to link to them or contact me! Shannon :-)
