Throughout the year, students add gems to our Lady’s crown as a reward for practicing the virtues at school.
Set up a bulletin board in the classroom with crowns labeled with the students’ names. These crowns are symbolically representative of crowns for Our Lady. As the school year progresses, the students have opportunities to practice virtue. If the practice of virtue is witnessed by the teacher, and she chooses to use it as a learning moment for the class, the student may earn a “gem” for Our Lady’s crown.
In giving these virtuous acts to Our Lady, Queen of the Classroom, she purifies them and presents them to the Father on the behalf of the students.
The hope is that by the end of the year there will be visible evidence of the many virtuous acts that were done to give glory to God. In giving these virtuous acts to Our Lady, Queen of the Classroom, she purifies them and presents them to the Father on the behalf of the students. It is, namely, a way of reinforcing the ongoing practice of virtue by modeling and showing a good example to each other.
