Wow! Pretty slick phrase-by-phrase system to learn what the Lord's Prayer means, or write what this wonderful prayer means to you phrase-by-phrase.
Lord's Prayer Fold-up Revealer
Version on the bulletin board revealing the meaning.
It's not enough to learn the Lord's Prayer by memory, if you don't know what it means - or if it has no personal meaning for you. Let's help our children understand this prayer.
If you don't agree with our definition of the phrases in the Prayer, use the fill-in-the-blank version and create your own definitions. MAKE IT PERSONAL!
THIS IS A REALLY EASY LEARNING TOOL TO MAKE.
Lots of ways to learn and use this prayer teaching aid!
Suits most popular variations of this prayer as shown below.
2 sizes - Student Personal (Medium) and Bulleting Board (large)
Debts or Trespasses versions
Long version: includes "for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen"
Short version: ends with "deliver us from evil"
If your church uses "Your" instead of "Thy", just cross it off and print "Your" in its place.
Defined: Our meaning of the Lord's Prayer: definition or interpretation is in the "Defined" selection
Fill-in-the-blank: You can write in your own meaning in the "Fill-in" selection.
|Grades: 2 thru adult|
Matthew 6: 9-15
You can see the variations in the samples below.
Use the thinnest paper you printer will take!
This is an easy and pretty fast project. There is no particular need to color unless you want to. (I suggest you do not color unless you have lots of time.)You can print in color or black and white. Color is pastel background which becomes light gray or white on black and white printer. The emphasis is on the meaning of the prayer.
Note: heavy paper may not fold as well. Be sure to double press all folds to flatten.
See the beginning of the Children's instructions and guide the process.
The Bulletin board version is BIG. "Trespasses defined long version " is about 25 inches long when all done. All others are a bit shorter. (It's about twice as long until you fold it)
Open PDF or print one selection and read our definitions to see if they match your understanding. You can have the class make small changes or print the fill-in-the blank version to complete it as shown in teacher instructions.
Pre-cut at least one page to show how the folds work.
