JOHN: (reaches for a crayon but Carl pulls the crayon closer to himself) Ms. Thomas, Carl keeps hogging all the crayon.

CARL: (pulling the crayons closer - has numerous pieces, and three unopened boxes) I need it.

MS THOMAS: There is plenty for everyone. (walks to the table and takes two of the boxes that Carl has in front of him and gives one to John and another one to Tia)

CARL: That’s mine!

MS. THOMAS: It’s for all of us. You must share with others.

CARL: But my mom brought it.

MS. THOMAS: Your mom donated it to the church.

CARL: What do you mean donated?

MS. THOMAS: She gave it to us.

CARL: I don’t think so. It’s mine.

MS. THOMAS: Okay, you keep working, I’m going to go ahead and get started. Today we are answering the question, “Why was Jesus born?” Each of your pictures, tell a story. Carl, what does yours show?

CARL: It is baby Jesus in the crib with Mary and Joseph standing next to it.

JOHN: (interrupting, holding up his paper) I’m finished.

MS. THOMAS: Good job, John. So, Carl, your picture is showing us the arrival of Jesus on earth. He was in a manger, because as we studied last week there was no room for him in the inn.

TIA: That’s because they didn’t make reservations!

CARL: (sounding sad) I like the toys.

MS. THOMAS: I know you do, but that is not what the birth of Christ is about. This time of the year should help us remember the sacrifice that God made in giving His only begotten son so that we can live eternally with Him. Every day, we should share, help those less fortunate, and show others the love of God.

TIA: That’s right, Carl. (emphasizing the word) Share.
