At my (former) parish, there is a Catholic grade school. When the students are in 4th grade, they begin to learn how to be altar servers. The current priest is not extremely invested in the kids, and I have been asked by the religion teacher to give the 5th graders a “review” on serving and in the future will probably be teaching the 4th graders.
Now she has given me a basic view of what she wants me to cover, but she told me I am free to say whatever I want, whether it is directly about altar serving, or just anything, even something like vocations. I will be formulating what to do/talk about, in the next 9 days before I do it, but I am posting for some further suggestions. My question, then, is what would you say to a group of 4th/5th graders who are either brand new or quite new to altar serving? a) about altar serving, and b) anything else related to Catholic liturgy and whatnot?
For those wondering, there are both boy and girl altar servers.
