There are 7 cards with the words to the Hail Mary on them. If 2 copies of the cards are printed, one could use them to play concentration. I also created a board to go with where the cards should be placed in sequence order. (Print the board on LEGAL size paper!!) There’s so many uses for the cards because they could just be used to recite the prayer as well.

Green With Envy (file folder game)





10th Commandment: You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods. (Catholic version of the 10th Commandment.)

Introduction: Coveting means wanting something really bad. It includes jealousy, but also taking things from other people, or ruining them so they can’t have them. We can do this with people—have you ever heard people say, “He’s my friend, he can’t be yours!” Or with property—for example, you might be angry at your brother and don’t want him to have the last cookie, so you eat it or hide it on him. Coveting is a way of being mean. It starts in our thoughts when we judge others. We think about things we can’t have, or that we think others shouldn’t have and then sooner or later, we act on these thoughts.

Gloria File Folder Game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.

Gloria File Folder Game is a simple board game with the straightforward objective of racing the player's 4 pawns from start to finish with dice throws. Similar to the brand-name board "Sorry!" marketed by Parker Brothers, Gloria (Ludo) shares similarities with the game Pachisi (or Parcheesi), which in turn originated in 6th century India (from fun-free-party-games.com)



Gloria File Folder Game: Players race against other players in advancing his/her 4 playing pawns from start to finish by answering questions about Gloria and with successful die rolls. Each player has four specifically-designated finishing positions. The winner is the first player to successfully rest his 4 pawns on his designated finishing space. This game can be played individually or in teams.




*This game is in accordance with the new Roman Missal that was implemented on November 27, 2011.


What's Needed:

• 2 - 4 Players (or players can be in teams)
• Game Board
• 8 - 16 playing pieces (pawns) in 2 - 4 colors (4 per color)
• 1 - die


About the Game Board:

The game board is laid-out as a "Cross" (having 4 arms). Each arm contains 4 colored "resting spaces" -- also called Home Spaces, which are the destination spaces for a player. These home spaces are bordered by the spaces along which the pawns are intended to travel. At each corner of the board are the 4 colored Starting Zones, where each player's pawns sit at the start of the game awaiting entry into the game board proper. A successful die throw of 6 is required for a pawn to jump from the starting zone onto the starting square. Lastly, the single colored space between the Starting Zone and the Home Spaces is the Starting Space where each pawn starts its journey toward the Home Spaces.


Set Up: This game can be played individually or in teams. Each player gets 4 pawns of the same color. Players put all 4 of their pawns resting in the Starting Zones located at the 4 corners of the game board. Next, shuffle the deck and place it face down in a small basket near the game board. Put an empty basket nearby for the discards. Players choose who will go first and then game play goes clockwise. Players can roll the die and have the person with the highest number go first.


Moving Pawns:

The playing pieces are meant to travel in a clockwise direction along the cross-shaped. Each playing piece is required to travel 1 full rotation around the game board before it can move into the player's Home Spaces. A die throw is used to determine the number of spaces by which pawns may advance.


At Start of Play: The game begins with each player's 4 pawns resting in the Starting Zones located at the 4 corners of the game board. Players take turns answering questions (the first person to their left reads the card). Players must answer a question correctly to roll the die. In order place your pawn on the Game Board a player needs to roll to exit the Starting Zone and enter the game board proper, a player needs to roll a 6. On a successful throw of 6, the player then places a pawn at the colored Starting Space.

The 4 colored Starting Zones are located in the same place. The single Starting Space is designated as the tail end of the colored Arrow pointing towards the center.


Moving One's Pawns:

The player has choices: Provided the player rolls enough sixes, he can have all four pawns in play. Thereafter, he can choose to move any of his pawns on any valid die roll. Conditions for valid moves:

* The destination space should be empty, or,
* The destination space is occupied by another player's pawn. If so, this pawn is "Captured" and gets sent back to its Starting Zone.

Capturing Pawns: Landing one's pawn on a space occupied by another player "Captures" the opponent's pawn. The captured pawn is then returned to its Starting Zone, where it must remain until a successful die throw of 6 makes it possible to be returned to the game board.

Forced Pass: A player is forced to pass his turn if his die roll results in no legal moves. If the only way to complete a move would result in a player capturing himself, the pawns remains in place and the player loses his or her turn.

Landing on the Home Spaces: A player needs an exact die roll in order to land on a vacant home space. Pawns that are already resting on home spaces can no longer be moved.

The game board is laid out as a "Cross" (having 4 arms). The Home Space is the exact center of the game board, which means all 4 pawns must reach the colored "Arrow tip" by means of an exact die roll.


Rule Variations for Faster Games:

*Throwing Multiple Dice: To make a game proceed faster, each player can roll 2-3 dice at the start of the game and keep throwing multiple dice each turn until he rolls a 6. He then uses the results of the multiple dice throw to move his piece. In subsequent turns, the player should only roll 1 die to move.

For example, if a player rolls "6-1-2", he can place 1 pawn on the Starting Space, then move it 1, then 2 places on the game board. Thereafter, he can only roll 1 die each turn, and must roll a 6 before he can place any other pawn at the Starting Space. On the other hand, if the player rolls "4-4-2", then all his pawns remain in the Starting Zone, forcing the player to pass his turn. On his subsequent turns, he can throw 3 dice until he gets a 6, thereby allowing him to place a pawn on the game board proper. Thereafter, he should throw only 1 die.

*Rolling Sixes: Under this rule, a player is allowed to roll again whenever he rolls a six. This way, a truly lucky player can have all four pawns advancing toward his Home Zone in record time.

Fruit of the Holy Spirit Bean Bag Toss





*This game is an adaptation from confessionofahomeschooler.blogspot.com


Use a 12 hole cupcake baking pan and write the 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit on blank label stickers and put one in each of the holes. Have the students take turns standing behind a chair tossing bean bags into the holes in the order from CCC 1832: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self control, chastity. The first student or team to complete the list in the correct order wins.

*For an added challenge you can have the players define the word or give an example of what it means.

*TIP: If you don't have time to sew a bean bag, pour beans into an old sock, knot the open end, and turn down the cuff.
