    Lenten Bulletin Board
    By Virginia

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I also take a positive approach to Lent with my first graders. I type positive actions such as help to fold laundry, pick up my toys, hug a family member, etc. onto green leaf shapes.

    On my bulletin board, I have just the trunk of a tree with the caption "Lent is a time to grow and change for Jesus" just above it.

    Each day a child closes their eyes and chooses a leaf from our bag. We discuss the action and staple onto the tree tunk. By the end of Lent the children can see how many good deeds were performed and our tree is in full bloom.
