WEEK 15 -- Feb. 21-27

Hello,

Welcome to the 15th week of Fourth Grade Religious Ed.

Continuing on our lesson of the Beatitudes, let's recall the following beatitudes:

  1. The first beatitude is "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" People who are poor in spirit are grateful for what they have and know that they can depend on God first.
  2. The second beatitude is "Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted" People who mourn are sad, and it's okay to be sad. Sometimes when we feel sad or cry it helps us feel better.
  3. The third beatitude is "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land" People who are meek don't brag and don't show off. Instead they are patient and kind.
  4. The fourth beatitude is "Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness" People who hunger and thirst for righteousness want all to be treated fairly. Sometimes we make mistakes, but that's okay. It happens and we will try to do better next time. We try to be more like Jesus. Please watch a video from Douglas to learn more about the fourth beatitude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5JR8AHpMsg

Also, this past week was Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. During Lent is when we really try to be more like Jesus, and prepare for Easter. And just as Douglas mentioned in the video, the Fourth Beatitude reminds us to be more like Jesus.

Please also read Unit 4 Session 20, Celebrating Lent and Holy Week (pages 163 - 167), and email me back with any Lenten promises (see p.164) that you will do during Lent. As an example, my sons, Ro and PJ, promise to really try to be nicer to each other during lent. PJ also gave up chocolate for lent, and Ro gave up YouTube so he can spend more time helping his parents out instead of watching YouTube.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Thank you

WEEK 12 -- Jan. 31 - Feb. 6

Hello,

Welcome to the 12th week of Fourth Grade Religious Ed.

Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season!

Let's start the year with The Beatitudes. The Beatitudes are the teachings of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-10). You can find them on p.56 of your book. Jesus teaches us that if we live according to the Beatitudes, we will live a happy Christian life. The Beatitudes inspire us to live our lives by making the right choices and doing good just as Jesus did, and when we do this we lead a happy life.

The first beatitude is 'blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" People who are poor in spirit are grateful for what they have and know that they can depend on God first. Please watch this video on the first beatitude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QgeNDb1nck. Over the next couple of weeks, we will continue to watch videos on the rest of the Beatitudes while continuing our lessons in our books.

Please also read and complete Unit 2, Session 7: p.55 - 59 (The Beatitudes) and then complete the interactive review on this link: https://isr.findinggod.com/fg_g4_s7
and follow the prompt at the end of the review and email the results to sainteulaliafourthgrade@gmail.com .

WEEK 11 -- Dec. 20-26

Hello,

Welcome to the 11th week of Fourth Grade Religious Ed.

As we prepare for Christmas day, let's remember what we are celebrating...Jesus' birthday! On this day we are also thankful to God for the gift of his son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior. And let's continue to follow in Jesus' footsteps by spreading love and peace during the season. The cards were a great start...so maybe we can continue in Jesus' footsteps with a little less fighting with your brother or sister, or a little more listening to Mom and Dad or something extra helpful for a friend or neighbor. I'm sure you can find many ways to spread love and peace this season!

Please read and complete Unit 3, Session 15: p.121 - 125 (Celebrating Christmas) and then complete the interactive review -- 
https://isr.findinggod.com/fg_g4_s15 -- and follow the prompt at the end of the review and email the results to sainteulaliafourthgrade@gmail.com .

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Remember we will be on winter break from December 27th - January 24th. Our first day back will be Jan. 31 (week 12).

I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and a happy new year! Peace and joy to everyone!

WEEK 10 -- Dec. 13-19

Hello,

Welcome to the 10th week of Fourth Grade Religious Ed.

Thank you for sharing all the beautiful cards last week. I am sure you made some hospital workers very happy! By the way, there were two students who contacted Mrs Clancy for addresses of hospital workers. However they didn't leave an email address for her to contact you back. If you are still looking for a hospital worker to send a card to, please let Mrs Clancy know. Her email address is religioused@saint-eulalia.com

Tomorrow, December 13th is the third Sunday of Advent. Advent is a time to prepare to celebrate Jesus's birth, Christmas.

Please read about Advent on p. 213 - 215 in your book and watch this video (watch up to 3:30, as we do not have an advent calendar that is mentioned at the end of the video). 

Parents, please respond to this email once the assignment has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you

WEEK 9 -- Dec. 6-12

Hello,

Welcome to the 9th week of Fourth Grade Religious Ed.

This week let's take the time to thank our doctors and nurses who have been working so hard to take care of many sick people during COVID. Please write a christmas card/thank you card to two hospital workers. You can write in a card or make your own card. As an example, please see the ones my younger son, PJ, wrote to his aunt and uncle last March.

You can either write the cards to someone you know or write to someone in the parish.

If you choose to write someone in the parsh, please complete this form on the link https://forms.gle/aPFXg37CzNK4Z6bJA Mrs. Clancy will give you some members in the church who work in a hospital. Please use the parish mailing address, 214 Blue Shutters Road, Roaring Brook, PA 18444, as the return address. Once completed, you can drop them off in a waterproof box outside the lower level entrance of the Conlan Center of the church.

Parents, please just respond to me that the assignment was completed. If you can share a pic of the card that would be great!

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend!

WEEK 6 -- Nov. 8-14

Hello

Welcome to the 6th week of Fourth Grade Religious Education

With this gorgeous weather, please go out and enjoy some time with the family. Perhaps take a walk or have a fire and enjoy nature. Last night I enjoyed a campfire and this morning I went for a run outside. I felt so lucky to be able to do all these things with my family and friends.

Recall in Unit 1 Session 1 (God Creates the World), you learned about God creating the world and how we can thank God for this gift by taking care of it. For example, some of the things you can do to care for the world include recycling or picking up litter. Please watch this quick video of what you can do to take care of the earth (and help out at the house).

Please respond to this email and let me know how you enjoyed the earth and great weather this past weekend and one thing you do or did to take care of the earth.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend!

Dear Fourth Grade Parents,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 year of St. Eulalia’s Religious Education program. I am excited to be your child’s teacher this year, and look forward to sharing my faith with them. I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Pia Mclaine.  I have been teaching religious education for about 6 years.  I also taught a very long time ago when I was in high school in NJ.  I work full time for a financial company and am a mother of two great boys, Roland and PJ.  They are in 6th and 8th grade and we are a proud NP family.  Roland aka “Ro” will be helping me with the 4th grade class this year.        

As you are aware, we are beginning this year virtually. Depending on your personal preference, you have been given a physical or digital copy of the book for your student. Each Sunday morning we will send the week’s lesson and any supplemental materials via email and Remind (see below for instructions on joining the Fourth Grade Remind class). Lessons and announcements will also be available on a dedicated religious education section on the parish website.

http://www.sainteulalias.com/religious-education/fourth-grade-religious-education.html

We suggest saving 9-9:30am on Sundays for the lesson and then either attend the 10:05am mass or watch the livestream mass together. However, we do understand the various constraints on each family’s time and mass preferences so as long as you can attend mass and complete the weekly assignments, we consider it a WIN.

Aside from the book materials we will also work on the Ten Commandments, the beatitudes, and making moral choices. 

We would also like to encourage you to join both the parish Facebook and the parish Religious Ed Facebook pages. Throughout the year there will be resources and announcements available to you as members of our parish community as well as parents of a Religious Ed student.

We realize the Religious Education virtual learning program is new and different for us all so please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time with any questions or concerns.

NOTE: Each week I will be sending you a lesson and/or activity to be completed during the week.  Please look out for my next email for this week's assignment.

Thanks and Regards, Pia McLaine

Below is a brief outline of what children enrolled in St. Eulalia's Religious Education Program learn during Fourth Grade

As each grade builds from the previous, the students learn more in-depth about the bible, its use, praying the rosary and saying it reverently. The Ten Commandments are studied with a break down of each commandment, and the beatitudes, teaching the students how to live and bring about the kingdom of God.
