An Expectant Easter is a Bible-based, Charlotte Mason-inspired curriculum designed with your whole family in mind. It’s an invitation to gather your family to center your hearts on what Easter is all about. Through Bible stories, hymns, poetry, art studies, picture books, projects, baking, tea time, and nature studies, your family will spend three weeks connecting together and focusing on the newness of Spring, the sacrifice that Jesus made, and the power of His resurrection. This curriculum is designed for the three weeks leading up to Easter with lessons for Monday through Friday, but you can easily adapt to more or less time.
What is included?
- Teacher's Guide with weekly grids, daily lesson plans, recipes, and handcraft instructions, 66 pages
- Set of Student Sheets with scripture, artwork, poetry, and hymn display sheets with copywork pages, 25 pages
- Narration Notebook, 12 pages
We suggest you print or purchase additional Narration Notebooks & Student Sheets for each child in your family.
The foundation of your lesson time will include reading a passage of scripture to your children. These passages will be studied in chronological order to complete the crucifixion and resurrection story by the end of the curriculum. Children will love opening a Bible Story Easter Egg each day that a new story is read, which holds a clue to the day’s story. Children will orally narrate each Bible story and complete a written narration in their "Easter Story Narration Notebook." They will then illustrate the day's passage, completing a 12-page keepsake by the end of the season.
Each week your family will also memorize a passage of scripture, worship together with a hymn, enjoy a poem, and study a biblically-themed piece of artwork. Along with that, each day you will snuggle together and read an Easter-themed picture book and then enjoy a coordinating handcraft or baking project that reiterates a theme in the story. On Fridays, you will have a sweet time together over tea and a treat and reflect on all you have learned. You will also complete a gentle and engaging Spring-themed nature study.

"Easter is a time to celebrate the greatest story ever told! My desire is to mark my children’s hearts with truth and traditions during the season leading up to Easter. I want those weeks to be memorable, fun, and most of all, draw them to their Savior. I designed An Expectant Easter for my family first, and now I’m so excited to share it with you."
