Each children is greeted at the door and then they enter their special space in a circle and after a prayer, the story teller starts the story. The children hear the stories, sees the stories and then wonder about the stories. They can also create things that goes with the stories expressing their own understanding of each story. They begin to identify the things God did and how it relates to them in their own life.
