Today, the PK 3 children celebrated the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. In class we listened to a story about St. Francis and learned that he was a friend of animals. One day while teaching about Jesus the singing birds were so noisy that St. Francis asked them to be quiet. The birds were silent until he was finished preaching. St. Francis thanked the birds and then all the birds flew into the sky in the form of a cross.
We then constructed our own bird to remember St. Francis. The best part of the morning, was meeting Father Bob outside near the St. Francis statue. He told us more stories about St. Francis and then blessed our animals.
