Christmas Countdown--9 Days Until Christmas

Luke 2:21-40 told us about Jesus' presentation in the temple at 8 days old. It also told of the responses of Simeon and Anna who met Him there. We sang the Nunc Dimittis (Simeon's song) from our hymnal.

Our countdown project today was to look at some Christmas art painted by Raphael in the 1500s. We especially discussed his use of line, color, and texture to create a subject and a mood. Then we made drawings to reflect these elements in our work.

We continue to read through the Read-Aloud Christmas Treasury.
