This morning for Jesus time we went up into the church to look at the Christmas Trees. The Christmas trees in church are decorated with special ornaments called Chrismons. All the ornaments are symbols the remind us of Jesus. We looked especially at the crown, star, cross, and Trinity. The students have been asking lately about the difference between God and Jesus. We have touched on how God has three parts and the Trinity symbol reminds us that God is three parts, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
|After looking at the different ornaments, I quizzed the kids to see how much the remember. If you attend church at Zion or another church with Chrismons, see what your child remembers or can tell you about them.|
After visiting the Christmas trees we took a walk outside to see some of the construction.
|It is so exciting to see the beams put in place and to start to see the building take shape!|

|Back in the classroom we reviewed the shapes we had talked about earlier in the week.|
|We played a guessing game to see if they could figure out which shape was missing. They had to work together to remember some of the names of the shapes: cube, sphere, cylinder, triangular prism, and rectangular prism.|
