4th grade students in Mrs. Sindoni’s class learn a great deal through their Bible Journaling exercise. Students look up verses, learning about the Old Testament and the New Testament and where to find passages in the Bible.
This exercise is more than just learning where to find Genesis and the Gospel according to St. Matthew. Students find a Bible verse that has meaning and speaks to them. After some thought and quite prayer, students copy the verse and illustrate it in their journal.
The mood is thoughtful and prayerful in the classroom during this exercise. Students are encouraged to find a verse that has meaning to them and to reflect on the Word in their journal. Students are learning about God’s word and practicing their research and ELA skills as well. This is a great example of how our faith is infused in all aspects of the school day at Holy Family.
