Teach the Children

flannel board figures:
 
Tell or read the story of “Teach theChildren” and
have the children hold up each object as it is mentioned in the story, then attach it to thetree. Discuss how the symbols of the season can remind us about the true meaning of Christmas. Makesure you reinforce these meanings in the future to help keep it fresh in their minds.
Lesson:
 
Kids Retell the Nativity:
Using the flannel board figures
have the KIDS retell the story of Christ‟s
birth. Give them assistance if needed, but try to let them be as independent as possible.
Review/Quiz:
Go through the symbols
on the tree you decorated previously during, “
Teach theChildren
and see how many of the meanings the children remember. Use the enclosed review sheet if necessary or even hang it up in the house to help you all remember throughout the season.

Grandma’s English Toffee
 
The ingredients:1 cup
butter
1 cup
sugar
1 Tbs.
light Karo syrup
1/4 cup
watersaltine cracker
s1 cup
chocolate chips
1/2 cup
sliced almonds
(optional)To prepare: Arrange saltines salty side up on cookie sheet. Have the chocolate chips measured and nearby.Have a glass with cold water right next to the stove, ready to test the stage of the candy.Combine the butter,syrup, sugar, and water and stir constantly on medium-high heat until boiling. Boil until it reaches the hardcrack stage (when dropped into the cold water it will crack and break easily) and the mixture will be brown (nolonger golden). It took about 10-12 minutes for me to reach this point.When you've reached the hard crack stage--pour and spread quickly covering the saltines. Immediately pour thechocolate chips over the hot mixture and spread them covering the toffee (they will melt themselves when theytouch the hot toffee). Spread the sliced almonds over the top, pushing them down slightly with the back of thespoon. Allow to cool and set. Break apart into bite size pieces. Enjoy!
