Love thy Teacher
Our church is celebrating 40 days of Hope this lent, and this week we are thinking about how wonderful our school teachers are.
Have a little think about your teacher or a teacher at your school.
What do you like best about school?
What is the best thing about your teacher?
Why not make them cards and tell them all the things you like about school and all the ways they make you feel happy. Let them know you are thankful for all the help they give you. Maybe you could draw a picture to show how much you appreciate them. Or use really kind words to explain how much you enjoy being in their class.
How are you feeling about returning to school again? Are you excited? Relieved? Nervous?
Maybe a little bit of everything.
Your teachers do a really good job of helping you understand all these feelings and how you can use them all for good. If you’re feeling nervous, your teacher will help you feel relaxed again. And if you are feeling excited you’re teachers will help you pass on your good mood to other children who might be worried.
Aren’t teachers wonderful?
Not only that, they have been working really really hard to make sure you don’t miss out on any of your learning whilst your at home!
They deserve a great BIG THANK YOU!!!!
In the bible, it says we should love our neighbors as ourselves. That means we need to look after everybody the best we can, including our teachers. Jesus said this is the second greatest commandment after loving God.
Gratitude and thankfulness can go a long way – be sure to share your beautiful smiles on Monday morning!
Pray for your teachers and your school friends and the start of school again on Monday.
