Hello all!! I’m working on updating one of my printables and I could use some input. I’d appreciate if you’d read through and then vote in the poll to help me out with this.
I have a booklet for the 10 Commandments. There is a little kids and a big kids version. In the little kids version, I try to simplify all the Commandments so that they’re easier to understand. In the big kids version, they’re the actual words of the Commandments. My problem is with the little kids version.
Since I work with littles (PreK-K), I had to have my DRE double check what I was using in class. The wording that she let me use for the 6th Commandment is “Do not love another”, which is actually “Thou shalt not commit adultery”. Obviously I can’t use adultery because the littles don’t understand it and we actually don’t discuss it that much. It is more along the lines of “you should only love the person that you’re with” (and of course family and friends).
My issue is that I’ve had a couple complaints about this wording. I’ve been told that it doesn’t make sense unless it’s fully explained to them (2nd graders) and it’s confusing for children and should be worded differently (grades K-4). No input on what the other wording could be or how to make it less confusing or how it wouldn’t have to be fully explained.
So, how should I word it?? I can make it “Do not love another than the one you’re with”, but that gets pretty long and awkward looking for text to be colored in by the children. Please take the poll below to help me with this dilemma. You can also type in your own choice for wording as well. Also, feel free to leave a comment on this post with your ideas.
Thanks for reading….and voting in the poll to help me out!!

I’m going to be rewarding my newsletter followers with exclusive freebies just for them!! This is something that I’ve wanted to do for awhile and I’ve finally gotten ready to implement it, so I’m really excited to tell you all about how to get exclusive freebies.
The best way to keep up with The Treasured Schoolhouse is to sign-up for the newsletter. That way, you’ll know every time I post to my blog. You won’t be spammed or anything else. You’ll just simply receive an excerpt of the post and you can click on the link to come back to the blog to finish reading it. Best of all, you only receive the newsletter when I post something….and not for anything else!!
So now onto the exclusive offer for followers of the newsletter. YAY!! If you sign-up to receive the newsletter to The Treasured Schoolhouse, you’ll receive a password the next time I post to a freebie. To access the freebie, you’ll be able to click on the link in the newsletter or you can come here to the blog and click on the “For Subscribers” tab. You’ll have to input the password, which will give you access to any freebies that are on the page. Sometimes they will be forever free and sometimes they’ll be free for a certain amount of time.
My goal is to offer a new freebie at least once a month. I can’t promise that though, so we’re going to say a new one will be posted as often as possible. I don’t want to disappoint anyone or break a promise, so for now, that’s what we’re going with!! You never know though, so you’ll want to check back, as there won’t be a notice when a new freebie is listed. I plan on having the freebies that I list be both Christian and educational so that I can cover both of my types of followers.
Also, the password will change often, so you’ll want to check with the newsletter to make sure you have the newest password. You don’t want to lose access to the “For Subscribers” page to grab the freebies!!
If this sounds good to you, please just sign-up to receive the newsletter. If you don’t already subscribe, you can enter your information on the sign-up form over in the right hand column of this blog. If you already do subscribe, then the password will be included in the next newsletter!!
This week, we worked on what’s inside the church. Next week, we’ll go tour the church and Father will have items for mass set-up for the kids. This all leads up to the week after when we attend mass for Ash Wednesday. I do lots of prep because of many of the kids, this is the first or only time attending mass, especially for the little ones.
I start by talking about the things that they can see outside and as they walk into the church. This is a great book for discussing the different objects in church….
I then discuss several objects with them. We do a fun activity of matching items that we’d see in church or not see in church. Sometimes they circle the items or color the items that they see in church. This time, we drew a line from the object to the church.
You could also simply place an “X” through items not found in church.
Next, we work on tracing the names of some of the objects in church.
Finally, we do a cut and paste activity. I had them color the church and then they were told to color the objects that they would find in the church. We should have cut them out and then glued them onto the church, but we ran out of time!!
