First Communion Activities

First Communion Activities

I’m very excited to be teaching second grade this year! I will be helping young people prepare for their First Communion and First Reconciliation. Since I’m new to this age level, I’ll be collecting as many First Communion activities and ideas as I can throughout the year and adding my own contributions I create them for my class. If you are teaching second grade or preparing children for their First Communions and Reconciliations this year, I hope you will check back here for more activities or send me your ideas and experiences with what worked best for you and your students.
