Year 1 – Lesson Plan Package – Level 1


23 downloadable PDF lessons for Level 1 (ideal for Pre-K through 1st grade but are easily adaptable for older children)

Our lesson plans are a companion to our book, Love First: A Children’s Ministry for the Whole Church so please be sure to read it!



Ideal for Pre-K through 1st grade, this lesson plan package includes:

  • 23 lessons, including:
    • Love Self, Jesus Heals the Paralytic
    • Thanksgiving
    • Advent
    • *Love Neighbor, The Good Samaritan
    • Lent/Easter
    • Love God, Jesus has Breakfast with Peter
  • Lesson plans include step-by-step instruction for teachers to implement Love First in their classrooms, including tips and strategies for developing a predictable classroom rhythm

*Love Neighbor is not an entire unit of lesson plans. Instead, we provide suggested projects and books that pair with the unit. In other words, we intentionally leave space for communities to seek ways for children to love their neighbor in their own communities. Want to see how other parishes are doing it?
