This is a 28-page packet that contains a readers' theater, poetry activity, and craft that focuses on Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Not much is known about Mary, and this theater gives the kids more background on her than her journey into Bethlehem to give Birth.
It includes Mary's parents and how they were gifted with Mary. Mary's presentation at the temple, Mary and Joseph's initial relationship, how Joseph was chosen as a husband, the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem and of course the journey, the raising of Jesus, Jesus in the temple. It ends on a strong note and does not go into the crucifixion of Jesus. Although it can be done at any time, it is perfect for the Christmas season! It makes a great bulletin board, the craft and poetry done after the Reader's Theater. I title the Bulletin Board: Mary, Did You Know?
This is very successful in my classroom. I hope you find as much success with it with your students. God Bless!
