Celebrating Easter and Mary’s Month!

Stephen Lajoie

Hello Friends,

Happy Easter! I hope this email finds you well and still basking in the Light of the Risen Lord! 

May is dedicated to our Blessed Mother; and for many schools, the end of the program year is quickly approaching. You鈥檒l find lots of Marian resources like A Simple Marian ProcessionMary鈥檚 Month and Mother鈥檚 Day, saint bios, weekly Gospel lessons and more right here on our Online Resource Library

Beyond this, here are just a couple of simple ideas on how to use Spirit of Truth to enhance your lessons as you head into the final stretch, also found on our Online Resource Library at SophiaTeachers.Org

  • Use the quiz/test questions to create individual and/or team challenges (grades 2-8). 
  • Likewise, use the index of vocabulary words to reimagine spelling bees, Jeopardy and/or Charades-type games.  
  • Create an art gallery using sacred art images from lessons throughout the year. Have younger students identify who is in each image and what they are doing. Older students could also tour the gallery and write one new thing they noticed, and/or short reflections on their favorite images.  

I hope that you have a blessed conclusion to your Lenten fasts and a joyful Easter! Please know that you and your students al*If you would like a tour of the Online Resource Library or need assistance with locating these materials on the website, feel free to schedule a call with me anytime, or use my calendar the schedule a time most convenient for you!*

I also wanted to share some inspiration with you. My colleague created a presentation 鈥淐rossing the Finish Line鈥 a couple of years ago, but I find it has some wonderful insights that are relevant for any season. I’ve taken a short segment of this presentation and shared it here. Enjoy!
