“In the beginning, the earth was a formless void, and darkness covered the face of the deep.”
“Then God said, “Let there be light.”
And there was light.”
These are the words that the children heard during worship on Monday morning. Hearing these words prompted the Sky Class children to notice the times and places throughout the school day that they see and manipulate light.
Like the way that our hands look like the flame of a candle as we pray.
How a rainbow shows on a wall when the sun shines just right through a crystal hanging in a window.
Or the tiny lights that appear from the reflection of something sparkly.
Or the sliver of light that peeks through the buildings at the school yard.
These are just some of the ways that the Sky Class children have noticed light in the last few days. This week, the children have begun working on their creation collages, making a small collage that represents each day of the creation story.
Fine motor skills also improve as children become more adept at cutting, folding, tearing, and gluing.
As children reflect on their own work, they see that it is so, and that it is good…and they see that God’s Creation continues in them.
