Teaching With Fulton Sheen {150 page FREE Curriculum & a giveaway!}


Today is Venerable Fulton J. Sheen's birthday!  In honor of this great man who has so profoundly impacted my role as a teacher, I'm happy to share with you the second edition of my Teaching with Fulton Sheen Curriculum- 150 pages of printables and instructions available to you for free!  It is the fruit of five years of teaching faith through the lens of Fulton Sheen's life, and I'm happy to be able to share it with classrooms and homes around the world.

Common questions:
-Most of these activities were created for use with my 5th graders.  Many of them have been successfully used with varying ages with small adaptations or different purposes.  I would say the target audience of the content is 2nd-6th graders, but some activities could be used with younger students and some activities would work for older students.
-The pdf ebook contains not only the printables, but also instructions, lesson purpose, cross curricular connections, timeframes, and photos of projects.
-Most of the ebook is content common to all CCD and school classrooms- prayer, Saints, Sacraments, Mary, Adoration, the Rosary, etc. This book shows how you could teach those activities in connection with Fulton Sheen's life, but they also could be stand alone activities.
-The ebook could be used in pretty much any order and with any amount of content.  You could use one lesson, five lessons, or the whole book.  It's meant to be a flexible supplement to your existing classroom content.

Would you like to use the Teaching with Fulton Sheen Curriculum?  Click here to get your free copy!

And what's a birthday without presents?  In honor of Fulton Sheen's birthday and my excitement over the new edition of the curriculum, I would love to send one reader this stack of books!  Sheen was a prolific writer and reader, so I think he would approve. ;)

You could win: (affiliate links to Amazon just in case you're not the lucky winner!)
And I might just send some other surprise goodies too!

So how do you win?
All I ask is that you share the Teaching with Fulton Sheen Curriculum somehow.  You could:
-email this post to a teacher, catechist, or DRE
-tell a homeschooling parent or co-op organizer about the curriculum
-send this post to any Catholic parent for help enriching their family culture
-pin an image from the post on pinterest
-share this post on facebook
-post a pic on instagram, etc.

To enter, just leave a comment below telling me you shared the post and who you shared it with.  If you have trouble leaving a comment, or can only leave an anonymous comment, you can also send me an email at looktohimandberadiant (at) gmail.com with your entry and I'll put you in the running.  I'll collect all the entries submitted by midnight next Monday, May 15, 2017, and randomly choose a winner to send the stack of books to.  Good luck!

Thanks for sharing the life of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen with others, and most of all for spreading love and devotion to Christ and His Church.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, pray for us!

  26. Hi Katie!

    I am new to your blog...I just came across it a couple weeks ago...and I am so glad to have found it! It is full of Catholic goodness!!

    This is such an awesome giveaway! I am just beginning to learn about Fulton Sheen and who he is and all that. Up until recently I'd only known of a few quotes by him (which are all AWESOME!), and am now enjoying learning more from his wisdom. I would love to be entered to win these treasures. I shared this post on Pinterest. (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/152911349831007344/)

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

    Grace and peace,
