This week we are talking about Easter … which is still going on. (The Easter season lasts till Pentecost.) We use Easter pictures on our Smart Board (here below with our leader of the week), and Easter themes in literacy and math.
We talk about how much we love our plastic eggs and bunnies, hula hoops and bouncy balls. Easter baskets are a highlight of the year! But we also say we mustn’t forget about Jesus!
We have a poster about Easter time to help us remember. It has pictures of Jesus with the disciples, a dog … everyone. It’s been a great tool to help the kids imagine what life was like with Jesus back then … and how – in a lot of ways – it’s just like now. That is, Jesus is with us and dogs and everyone!
The kids are especially drawn to the poster, stopping to look at it and talk about it frequently.
You can never underestimate the power of a picture!!
