    The lessons of Grace and Courtesy in Montessori environments that replace “classroom management” help children to build community together. Simple sentences and related art will quide you through the lessons of Grace and Courtesy and serve as a gentle reminder of the practices that create harmony among children.

    Artist and Montessori teacher Alicia Olsen has created an easel book with paintings of 16 lessons for Grace and Courtesy. Each page is a painting with a simple sentence that you can use to demonstrate a lesson to children, or reinforce by setting a particular page on a shelf at the children’s eye-level.

  • Sing with Joy: Music of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for Children Three to Six Years
    $40.00

    A book and CD set of 39 songs with music, chords, lyrics and notes by Catherine Maresca regarding use of each song in the atrium. The CD is recorded by the children’s choir of Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, TN.

    Music has a very important place in the prayer of children and life in the CGS atrium. To encourage the use of good music and lyrics, Treehaus Communications, musicians in Nashville, and catechist/formation leader Catherine Maresca created Sing With Joy and Songs of Love, two books with a CD of age- and theme-appropriate music for the atrium.

    The books were created to provide legal access to the lyrics, music notation, notes and recordings of music for catechists, respecting the rights of the composers, writers, artists and publishers who created and brought this music to the public. This or any other music should not be reproduced without permission.

    After 30 years, and feedback from the catechists who use these beloved texts, we have updated our scripture booklets to better suit the needs of the children of the atrium.

    Scripture Booklets isolate texts particularly appropriate for children and presents them with one verse per page so that attention can be given to each idea in the text. The texts were chosen by Sofia Cavalletti. Simply illustrated with only one drawing in each booklet so the child’s reflection will be encouraged but not limited by the artwork.

    The color of the covers follows the coding of Sofia’s own hardbound set.

    Buy Scripture Booklets Sets I and II together and save $30. This new edition matches the materials of the Level I and II atriums, plus the parables of Level III. Smaller size, laminated covers, new calligraphy and art work, and a Spanish translation in the back make this affordable new edition more attractive and usable than ever.
