Teaching the Lord's Prayer with Visual Faith by Lisa Stanley

Updated: Jan 21, 2021

This year we worked on creating a Lord's Prayer visual faith project in the Kindergarten and Young 5's classrooms.

I chose to teach the Lord's Prayer at the beginning of this year because I had a number of new students who didn't attend our preschool last year and whose families do no attend our church. I always want my students to learn the words and be able to pray along when this prayer is used in church and school.

I remembered seeing the Lord’s Prayer Tracing Cross on the Visual Faith Ministry website, so I printed a copy for each student. Every week we did a section or two of the cross, focusing on each petition and talking about what each part of the prayer meant.

I would have liked the students to write different names we use for God, but since we did this at the beginning of the year and many younger students were just learning to write, we just talked about the many names there are for God.
