A9 – Prayer in the Classroom
Presenter: Dianne Dias (Durham)
Description: Prayer can be a powerful way of fostering community in the classroom. This workshop will help you involve your students in various ways of praying that also tap into different learning styles, and, with very little prep. Engage your students in traditional prayers like the rosary and meditation as well as non-traditional prayers with the use of media and movement. Simple prayer table ideas can incorporate the liturgical seasons, bring symbols to life and create a sense of ritual that help a classroom community to connect with God and others. Workshop is especially for elementary classes.
