3 Correlation of Alive in Christ School Edition This correlation of Alive in Christ School Edition Grades 1 6 provides page references for the Student Book. Other program components offer additional opportunities for instruction and development of the guidelines. The Teacher Editions include background content on Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, as well as formation in developmental appropriateness. There are also opportunities for teacher formation on-line. Lectionary connections for a three-yearcycle, assessments, and optional activities are provided, as well. Catholic Social Teaching and lessons for the feasts and liturgical year can be correlated with core chapters or stand alone. The Alive in Christ website (aliveinchrist.osv.com) includes extensive online resources and interactive connections between the Student Book and the website, along with music, assessments, social media interaction, customized lesson planning, program support materials, a multimedia glossary, question of the week, and many other features. Alive in Christ deepens children s experience of faith through song, with two unique components to meet diverse needs and developmental models. In some cases this music is referenced. Our Sunday Visitor has partnered with LicenSing Online* to provide music for students and teachers. This includes the Alive in Christ theme song and age-appropriate music for each grade at varying steps of the catechetical process. Songs of Scripture: Deepening Children s Understanding of the Word of God is an original work of forty songs designed to teach or unfold the meaning of Scripture. Songs from both of these resources may be sampled and downloaded at aliveinchrist.osv.com. Take Note of the Following: A. Because of Alive in Christ s approach to its scope and sequence, which is structurally organized around seven foundational doctrines of the Church, many of the standards are presented at an earlier grade level and expanded in subsequent years, or will be treated at greater depth in a coming year. B. Alive in Christ School Edition contains an intentional use of activities to assess learning, aid in understanding, reinforce concepts, and apply learning to the child s life. In some cases the activities are cited. Cross-curricular activities to integrate the faith in all aspects of curriculum are found on the Chapter Connections page of every chapter in the Teacher Edition. C. The Vocabulary references in Alive in Christ are named Glossary of Catholic Faith Words, and are cited in the sidebar and found in the Glossary of Catholic Faith Words in the Student Book. D. Our Catholic Tradition: Faith Basics is a reference section found in the back of the Student Book. This section is patterned on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and presents content divided into the four sections of We Believe, We Worship, We Live, and We Pray. This section is referenced in both the Student Text and Teacher Edition with suggestions to teach the content as part of the lesson. E. If a standard is not specifically presented in Alive in Christ, a suggestion may appear for the teacher about where it would be most appropriate to add this content in a lesson. F. In each grade level, Alive in Christ s Teacher Editions present a developmental overview of a child at this age and discuss the content in relationship to the catechetical readiness of the child. G. Kindergarten correlations for our Kindergarten programs Allelu! and Call to Faith Kindergarten are available upon request. H. The NCEA IFG: Acre Edition is directly related to objectives for every chapter in the Teacher Edition on the Chapter Connections page. I. While grades 7 and 8 follow the same catechetical process and contain comprehensive theological content delivered in precise theological language that is developmentally appropriate, a correlation for grade level 7 is not available until April 2014 and grade level 8 in May 2014 as final editions are currently being completed.

12 Task Two: Catechesis Promotes knowledge of the meaning of the Liturgy and the sacraments. LITURGICAL The Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist are the Sacraments of Initiation. BAPTISM Through Baptism each person becomes united with Jesus Christ, sharing in God s life and receiving His grace.

Through Baptism each person becomes a child of God. We become members of the Church, we are Catholic Christians. At our baptism, our parents and godparents made promises for us and agreed to help us learn about God and keep those promises. At our Baptism each person had water poured on their head. At the same time, the priest prayed to the Holy Trinity saying, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. The water is a sign of new life in Christ. At our Baptism each person receives a special sign on our soul. Baptism begins our journey to live with Christ and be like Him. The Sacrament of Baptism is received only once in a person s life. 281, 282, , Catholic Faith Words 293 Becoming Members 292 Catholics Believe 298 We Worship , 282, Catholics Believe 298 We Worship 364 Alive in Christ 2014 School Correlation to the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend Indiana Catechetical Curriculum Guidelines June

13 EUCHARIST In the Sacrament of the Eucharist Jesus comes to each person in a very special way. Mass is another word for the celebration of the Eucharist. Each Sunday, Catholics worship God by going to Mass at their parish church. During the Mass the priest puts his hands over the bread and wine. He asks God the Father to send the Holy Spirit to make the bread and wine holy. This is called the epiclesis. The next part of the Mass is called the Consecration. The priest consecrates the bread and wine and it becomes the Body and Blood of Jesus. The priest says, this is my body, this is my blood , 304, Catholic Faith Words 307 Catholic Tradition 302 Activity 283, 305 God s Word 306 Reflection Prayer 312 Chapter Review 313 Catholics Believe 314 You Wonder? 303 Our Catholic Life 282 We Worship 364 See the song Great Feast found on Songs of Scripture and Supper of the Lamb found on And With Your Spirit- lyrics and music found at aliveinchrist.osv.com , 304, Catholic Faith Words 307, 308 Activity 305 God s Word 306 Reflection Prayer 312 Chapter Review 313 Catholics Believe 314 You Wonder? 303 We Worship 364 The song Great Feast found on Songs of Scripture and Supper of the Lamb found on And With Your Spirit- lyrics and music found at aliveinchrist.osv.com Catholic Faith Words 307, 308 Catholics Believe 314 We Worship 364 Epiclesis is not a term that is presented but the understanding and meaning is taught and reinforced in all grades. 44, 304, Catholic Faith Words 307, 308 Activity 305 God s Word 306, 314 Reflection Prayer 312 Chapter Review 313 We Worship Catholics Believe 314 You Wonder? 303 Alive in Christ 2014 School Correlation to the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend Indiana Catechetical Curriculum Guidelines June

14 Before He died Jesus ate a last meal with His apostles. This Last Supper was the first Eucharist. Until we are able to receive Jesus in the Eucharist we can go up to receive a blessing from the priest. Young children can pray in their hearts that Jesus comes to them. The Church has a liturgical year. Easter is the most special feast in the liturgical year. Other liturgical seasons are: Advent, Christmas, Ordinary Time, Lent and Easter Advent is the four weeks preparation time for Christmas. During this time we await the coming of Christ. Lent is the six week preparation time for the celebration of Easter. Lent is a time of penance and sacrifice. It begins with Ash Wednesday.

15 Grade 1- Task Three: Catechesis Promotes moral formation in Jesus Christ. MORAL God graces us with His love. Each person can choose what is good or choose what is wrong. Each person can ask God to help them choose what is good. A person sins when they choose what is wrong. When a person chooses what is wrong they offend God. It is important to have a good relationship with God. When we do what offends God we must ask Him for His forgiveness. We Live Take Note of the development of the Fruits of the Spirit, related to each Seasonal Lesson- 13, 20, 26, 32, 40, 46, 52, 58 These fruits will help people make good moral choices.

18 God wants each person to worship him each Sunday at Mass. God wants each person to obey their parents and other people in authority; such as priests, teachers and police officers. God wants each person to always tell the truth. It is wrong to say hurtful things about other people. It is wrong to hurt someone on purpose.
