Happy birthday Baby Jesus!  The story of Jesus' birth is the central theme of our Christmas unit.  Through songs and stories the children have heard the story of Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem and, after finding no room in the inn, staying in the stable where Mary gave birth to Jesus.  The animals, the shepherds, the angels and the wisemen came to see the baby.  The star shown brightly over the stable pointing to where the baby lay.  This week our classes have been acting out the story, complete with costumes and props!  We realize that Joseph did not ride a bike to Bethlehem.  However, this Joseph loved to ride a bike after the enactment :)
