Daily Assignment for Parents of Pre-K/Kindergarten Students

Take 15-30 minutes each day or evening to complete this Prayer/Journaling Assignment

Gather every day as a family to pray. Encourage your child to say their own prayer aloud. If they are hesitant, tell your own prayer first. These do not have to be formal, recitation prayers. This is simply to get the child used to the idea of having a conversation with God. Have your child pick a bible story to read together. Using “Pope Francis Family Devotional” book, discuss with your child what they feel/think/understand about this day’s devotion. Tell them what you got from it. In the daily journal, have your child draw something relating to the day’s prayer. Then write a quick summary of what you discussed.

*Drop Off the journals in the West Room before heading to the Library for snack time to ensure they’ll be returned in time for the coming week
