This Week’s Theme – Easter
Spring has arrived, and with it comes Easter, a holiday that holds great significance for many. Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It is the oldest and most important Christian holiday, and it is celebrated by millions of people all around the world. The date of Easter changes every year, and it is determined by the first full moon after the vernal equinox, which usually falls between March 22 and April 25.
Easter is a time of renewal, hope, and joy. It is a time for families and friends to come together and celebrate the victory of life over death. In many cultures, Easter is also associated with the arrival of spring and the rebirth of nature. This is why many Easter traditions involve eggs, flowers, and other symbols of new life.
Despite the religious roots of Easter, it has become a popular secular holiday as well. Many people, regardless of their faith, enjoy the festive spirit of Easter and the opportunity to spend time with loved ones. It is a time for reflection, gratitude, and connection, and it reminds us of the importance of faith, hope, and love in our lives.

One fun activity for celebrating Easter in the classroom is to have an Easter egg hunt. You can fill plastic eggs with treats or small prizes, and hide them around the classroom or schoolyard. For older students, you can also incorporate puzzles or riddles that must be solved in order to find the hidden eggs. This activity is a great way to bring some joy and excitement to the classroom while also celebrating the holiday.
