Resources to help celebrate St. Francis of Assisi's Feast Day on October 4th

Printable St. Francis Trading Card
 Here are some learning goodies to help you learn about and celebrate St. Francis of Assisi's Feast Day.

St. Francis of Assisi is perhaps one of the most popular and well known saints in the world.  There is so much to tell about this holy hero of the past.  Many remember him for his association and gentleness with animals others recall the wonderful prayer of St. Francis which tells us specifically how to be better Christians, but I remember that St. Francis is the one responsible for the nativity scene as we know it today.  We offer these resources to help inspire young Catholics to learn more about this wonderful, beloved saint.

From our book study on In God's Garden by Amy Steedman, read and print a story about St. Francis of Assisi Here.  Listen to that story read Here.

Printable Prayer Page
This two per page prayer sheet colourfully displays the prayer of St. Francis in an easy to read and inviting way.  This would make great copywork too.  Find this and other printable prayer sheets at this link.

Saint Trading Card - Pictured above.
Find a saint trading card that highlights St. Francis of Assisi with one of his most famous quotes and a notation of his feast day as well.  They are printed with four cards per sheet.  Find this and other saint trading cards at the link above.

Use our eight page My Book Mini-book of St. Francis of Assisi to have children narrate the details of the life of this famous saint.  Prompted pages help keep learners on track.  Prompts include symbols, what makes this saint special, when would you call on this saint for intercession and more.  These books are always a hit with learners and are perfect for families who follow a Classical or Charlotte Mason learning style.  This resource is especially handy because it can be used with any resource you may already have on hand at home or can easily find online.  Download this and other books from this link.

If your child likes card learning, little narrations, or card collecting, then this resource may be just what you are looking for.  Paired with a Doctor of the Church, St. Therese of Lisieux, this sheet provides two cards in one.  Our children love using these little recall cards.  Simply print it out, fill it out, cut it out, fold and glue.  We laminate our cards for future game use and lots of handling.

Help children learn one of the most famous and inspiring quotes from this great saint using our trace copywork sheets available in print as well as cursive styles.  Find this and other saint quote copywork sheets at the link above.

We hope you find these resources fun and uplifting.
