Our focus is on The Sacraments for fifth grade.
I wasn’t clear though, sorry, I don’t expect them to memorize them! I agree, that would be too difficult and take too much time, we have to focus on other things. I just want them to have them, know that there’s a spot where they can find them easily, and have a familiarity with them. Also, we start every session with a prayer, and I thought it would be good to introduce them to other prayers than the Our Father and the Hail Mary (As good, holy, and Sacred as those prayers are.)
Before I started I thought they might not even know the Sign of the Cross, what with the horror stories I hear on the forums all the time. They are actually all very well versed in their Faith, however. I guess we have a good program here. I just noticed that they didn’t know the Glory Be when we did a class rosary, so I thought they might not know others and would probably like to have them (they get excited about things like this. I told them I’d bring them Holy Cards of St. Michael and they were bouncing in their seats)
