September 15th is the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. Today we offer an F3 Piece on the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This activity is a wonderful go-along activity for our Little Lesson on Our Lady of Sorrows by Michelle Scott or any Faith notebooking project, CCD class or feast day celebration. In order to complete this Flip, Flap, & Fold Piece, children will need to prepare the pieces, look up some scripture passages and match religious images to the passages and titles. It is easy to complete and requires scissors, glue, our file, and a Bible. Older learners could complete this project on their own taking about 30 minutes or so, but it is a nice family activity as well. This really is a great way to practice using the using the Bible while finding concrete examples of our Catholic Tradition in our Lord's word.
Here's what to do: First cut out all the pieces on the lines as directed in the instructions on each sheet.
Next look up the scripture passages in the Bible. Match the scripture pieces to the appropriate pictures and glue them onto the proper numbered sorrow piece in their designated spot.
Create the pocket for the completed pieces by folding as indicated on the pocket sheet. Be careful to fold the flaps all in the same direction and glue only where indicated.
Finish off F3Piece by assembling and gluing piece into folder, notebook, project, or onto cardstock.
We hope this helps to bring some fun into your day while teaching about some of the most core beliefs and traditions of our rich Catholic Faith.
