The Importance of Pentecost

Hi friends! It's been awhile since I offered you a freebie on here!  I've had a super-hard time finding the clip art I needed to make this one, so I decided to leave the pages of the mini-book blank for your kiddos to illustrate!

As you know, today was Pentecost.  In my class, we've been talking about how Jesus promised to send a helper to his followers so they would be brave enough and know the right words to say to continue his work after he ascended into heaven.  We've talked about how, on Pentecost, the helper Jesus promised appeared to Jesus' followers, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit!  They felt brave enough to go talk to people about the Good News, and they knew exactly the right words to say!  We also talked about how Pentecost is often called the birthday of the Church.  I've made this little activity to use tomorrow with my students, and I would love to share it with you!  Click on the picture below to download my Pentecost mini book and craft.

What are some things you do to teach the importance of Pentecost?
