Classroom supplies: I am quite aware that most of you do not like crafts, but the children and parents have lobbied to include crafts; indeed most 11-12-year-olds love crafts. So…Each week there will be a small craft but it is critical to do each craft because at the end of the year, each student will have completed his own Jesse Tree, which his family can use every year during Advent. A Jesse Tree includes small objects symbolizing the Old Testament characters who were forefathers of Jesus (either genetic or spiritual). The crafts were chosen for the theme, but also to give the students a chance to see various mediums – clay, fabric, pipe cleaners, etc. The box will contain markers, tape, scissors, glue, and staples, in addition to your usual pencils, paper, and huge pad of paper to serve as a “blackboard”. Each student should have his own Bible and should either leave it on the shelf or bring it each week.  There are also maps of the holy land and of the temple and a classroom copy of God is With Us.
