Doing school at home can be so confusing! Both for teachers and for parents who are navigating school assignments and many children in different levels of learning.
It's not quite homeschooling.
Teachers are having to teach by remote services and sometimes have to teach families how to use the services. It is taking so many more hours than simply teaching in the classroom! Not to mention grading once students return their assignments.
Families are having to navigate several children's assignments from each of their teachers. God spare us the grades where there are many teachers per student! One lady shared she has eleven children in ten grades with multiple teachers per child!
Do include all of these in your prayers. We do.
A healthy and holy Lent to you and yours! ~Mary

The Catholic First Communion and Catholic Confirmation catechism cover most of the truths in any Roman Catholic catechism so they're a great place for children and adults to learn or review the basics.
Did you know that the main difference in levels is greater explanation of the truth? Most catechisms, both child and adult, cover the very same questions:
Simple! A child's catechism is merely an outline of an adult catechism. If you're an adult, read an adult catechism for more details and stories from the Bible and the lives of the saints.
If you're new, be encouraged that you don't have to go through all the "levels".
It all began years ago when our pastor asked us to teach the First Communion class, early in our marriage. Later, and after we had taught the Roman Catholic catechism to our own children through the years, using many different catechisms and programs; I was thrilled to find that the catechism is super simple.
In the course of time we developed First Communion and Confirmation catechism worksheets and audio recordings that you can use in CCD, RelEd, Catholic schools and Catholic homeschool.
Whether you're using the Baltimore Catechism for children or a giant compendium for adults, the exact same topics are covered. What a relief to new students!
Be encouraged by this knowledge and encourage your students with the same. Once they've made it through the basics, you've got a great outline to use for the rest of your life unto the great pearl of final perseverance.
