Free Printable Beatitude Fill-In Worksheet for 4th and 5th Grade

I hope you love teaching the Beatitudes as much as do. This Beatitude Fill-In worksheet works really well for 4th and 5th graders when used as part of my Beatitude lesson. I emphasize that the Beatitudes can really be thought of as the”BE”attitudes. They are internal attitudes that help us live as Jesus intends us to live. By following them, we will BE our best selves.

Teach this worksheet as a whole group exercise. Use the table below the worksheet to guide the students in the discussion on what the Beatitudes are all about. Don’t forget to print the answer key. And if you would like a Beatitude poster for your classroom to facilitate discussion, I have free ones in different sizes.

Use Beatitude Examples and Shorthand when teaching

Students need help understanding their confusing wording. After I pass it worksheet out, I talk about each Beatitude verbally using the examples listed in the table below in the second column . As I do that I write on the write board a shorthand way to refer to the Beatitude. Then the students can choose something I’ve written on the whiteboard to finish the statement “BE ____________________” on the worksheet.
