|Flower arranging is a peaceful work.
As we begin the new year, we've been creating opportunities for the children to become engaged in the materials provided in the atrium. There are such riches in each work to be discovered. We present each material to the children, but often the deepest learnings are made by the children themselves while working on their own. It was a joy to see the children working peacefully with many different materials this week. I am so thankful for all three of our atria and for all of our beautiful materials made by Christ Church's catechists and parishioners!
I took a few pictures of our little group working on Sunday and thought I would share them with you here. We have made a beginning!
|Many hands have set the model altar already this year.
|Deep concentration is needed to find the unfamiliar names of Israel on the pin maps.
|Matching the cards describing the articles we find on
the altar is a work that seems to satisfy the children.

moving up from the Good Shepherd Atrium.
