Pathway to Lent
After learning about the season of Lent this week in Religion, the 2nd grade students colored a “pathway to Lent”. The class discussed promises they could make for Lent. Ideas ranged from being nice to their siblings to doing things before their parents ask them to. They also discussed giving up some of their favorite things such as donuts, soda and gum. For everyday that the students follow their individual Lenten promise they will place a cross sticker on that day. This is displayed as a reminder to keep their Lenten promises.
Discussion also centered around how sometimes we forget to keep our promises, and that's understandable, as long as we are making an effort. The students are working hard to get their cross stickers each day, and enjoying the challenge to be mindful of their promises during the Lenten season.
