Welcome to 2015!
Students in my first class of this year were taught about the 3 Kings Day or Epiphany. The Epiphany is 12 days after Christmas, Jan. 6th.
I read from Matthew Chapter 2, verses 1-12 to give the students historical and biblical information on the 3 Kings.
2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders folded and cut paper Kings. The 3 Kings were supposed to stay connected at the elbows and bottom of their cloaks, but some needed a little tape. The children decorated the 3 Kings to look majestic.
The 6th, 7th and 8th grade students used oil pastels to draw various perspectives of the 3 Kings. Sixth graders drew up-close faces of the kings.
Eighth grade students drew the 3 Kings on their camels following the star.
Each student also heard how other countries around the world celebrate the Epiphany in their country.
