I love when holidays roll around, because it’s a great excuse to incorporate some kind of theme into our school work. After the newness of the new year wears off, we are always looking to mix things up and make school a little different. After the winter break, we seem to fall into a slump in regards to our school work. The kids have the winter blues, and are ready to go outside and play. No one feels like doing school, especially this mama.
Spring is one of my favorite times of year. It brings forth such a newness, and the feelings of a fresh beginning. If you are a Christian, it brings your focus back to God and what He has done for us with the Resurrection. We love celebrating Easter and incorporating Bible and Easter themes into our homeschool. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Easter than by incorporating some FREE Writing Prompts for Lent and Easter into your homeschool.
Lent is a season of spiritual preparation before Easter. It is similar to advent when we prepare our hearts for the birth of Christ. Many Christians observe this Lenten time with a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose of this is to set aside deliberate time for reflecting on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
