Creating an Easter Sunday Mindset in our Classroom the Entire Year
He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
The euphoric, emotional high that is felt by Christians throughout the world on Easter Sunday morning is intangible. On one day of the year, we unite together proudly proclaiming a risen Savior.
Perhaps, you had an extra-special focus on our Savior’s actions throughout Holy Week in your classroom as it all culminated with a joyous worship service on Easter Sunday.
When we think of Easter we think of joy, victory, enthusiasm, and an inward reaction to run and go tell others the Good News!
Wouldn’t it be great if we took that same attitude and emotion that we feel on Easter Sunday, and have it permeate our classrooms throughout the entire year? Having that attitude of joy and victory and enthusiasm in all that we do.
That mindset always begins at the top. Yes, teachers, I’m looking at you. You are the one who sets the tone of your classroom. What type of tone are you setting? It is one of joy? Is it one of that no matter our weakness, we are victorious through Christ?
Students notice the smallest of imperfections from their leader, their teacher. If you are often stressed out, they will notice. Do you come to school with tired eyes? They notice. Do you stand to yourself rather than smile and laugh with the other faculty and staff at lunch or recess? They know. Are your lessons taught with the enthusiasm and importance? Oh boy do they notice.
