Words for the Journey for Kids
, Les Miller
Number of pages: 96
An original collection of fifty ready-to-use prayer services that encompass liturgical as well as secular themes.
Words for the Journey for Kids is perfect for the classroom. Each fun, easy-to-use service has simple ideas for set up and is divided into seperate reader's sections. All the themes are firmly rooted in the Word of God, and each prayer service contains a reading adapted from the Good News Bible.
Words for the Journey for Kids is organized by month and can be used in a classroom or whole school setting. Some of the services have parts for the students to act out. Others are more contemplative. All are designed to include the involvement of many students yet can be easily adapted to suit the individual needs of those who are using them.
