Children will learn about the first Christmas, the birth of Christ Jesus. Participants will be grouped by age and grade, rotating through four stations: "The Bethlehem Star," "Mary," "The Sheep," and "The Innkeeper." Each station will be led by a teacher in costume representing the Nativity character they portray. Teachers will present stories, short videos, narratives, games, crafts, and projects aimed at facilitating learning about each facet of the Nativity. Among the activities, children will create their own set of 4 ornaments for their home tree. Lessons, stories, narratives, and crafts will be differentiated to appeal to the various ages of the children. A pizza lunch, veggies, and a drink will be provided. In the afternoon, we will learn songs, wrap gifts for needy children, and celebrate Jesus's birthday. Staffing: Children will be assigned to a small group of 10, based on age and grade. All staff members undergo background checks and United Methodist safety training. Teaching staff includes current or retired public school teachers, while support staff consists of Cason Church members. Slots are limited, and pre-registration is required.
