New year – Classroom Religious Education

The following are 3 items I will check off as I prepare the classroom for RE next year:

1. Ask for copies of school policies/practices such as homework, RE programs, proformas, school reports etc.

2. Prepare room for RE (setup prayer table, liturgy box, sacred space, prayer promts etc.)

3. Plan first day – welcome liturgy, get to know you, class prayer etc.
