Learning Catholic Words and Meanings {Vocabulary Notebook Pages}

One way I like to help my kids learn and retain knowledge of our faith is through Catholic picture dictionaries. Their simple design makes them easy to pick-up and read when you have only a few free minutes. To help them retain these words and meanings, I created a "Catholic Words" printable notebooking sheet.

This page has space for:
  1. the name of the Catholic word they are learning
  2. the definition (some definitions may need to be shortened)
  3. a picture of the idea/item, if possible
Each page has space for 3 words. 
My kids have these pages in a 3-ring binder and they add a word a day. They do this during the school day when they are finished all their other work and they are waiting on me to check/help them.
Each night I write a Catholic word onto our blackboard. Then, during school time the next day, they pull out their Catholic dictionary look up the word and write it down, along with the definition. They also draw a picture of the item or idea if they can.

These are the books we used to look up the Catholic words:
This book is the one my older kids use:

This one was better for the younger kids:

Has anyone ever use this book?
 I'm wondering if it's good:

Vocabulary Sheets

Along with the "Catholic Words" sheet I created a "vocabulary" sheet. This one is for everyday words. My kids use this one when they come across a word they don't know. They write it down and look it up.
The word area on this page has space for:
  1. the word
  2. the definition
  3. antonyms 
  4. synonyms
  5. a sentence 
  6. and they can draw a picture, if possible
These are also kept in the same 3-ring binder. They have a page with a tab between the two sections.

Both these pages and a cover page are available in our shop - for free. 

Hope you have a blessed school year!
