    Last year my third graders hosted a rosary program for K-6 graders. We are a small school. There is only one class of each grade.
    They read about St. Dominick who received the rosary from Mary. I made three big posters that each had spaces for the 5 mysteries of the rosary, the glorious, joyful, and sorrowful. I had a book of the rosary where I could run off copies of the pictures that go with each mystery. The children colored them and I glued the name of the mystery and a sentence about it on the back of each picture. After a child read their mystery they place it in the space on the poster. (tape was in the space) After the presentation of the three mysteries we served punch and a rosary made out of cupcakes. I used a long lunchroom table. The Our Father was a cupcake frosted white, the Hail Mary's brown frosting. I had a crucifix at the beginning of the rosary. I placed sticky dots on the table so I knew where to place each cupcake and so it looked like the shape of a rosary. The kids loved it and they learned a lot about the rosary.
