The Good Shepherd Calls Us By Name

Jesus is the Good Shepherd

The main message of the Montessori catechesis for toddlers is that Jesus calls each of us by name.  We know His voice and follow Him.  This message will last a lifetime!

The first lesson can even be given with materials made from cardboard.  Here, the sheep, shepherd and sheepfold are made of wood, but it's the children's work with the material that's important--not the material itself.
In only 10 minutes the children took in the most important lesson of catechesis:  Jesus is the Good Shepherd, who knows us and calls us by name.  Afterwards each child had a chance to work with the material.


  1. I just discovered your blog, and I love it ; I very happy especially about de "cathechis of the Good Shepherd" part, I find it rather difficult to find information about it. I'm currently reading Sofia Cavaletti's book, and looking forward to do it with my 3yo !
