The children will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the message from the angels to the shepherds.

(2) God sent Jesus to Mary and Joseph.
(3) God sent Jesus to the shepherds.
(4) God sent Jesus to us.
Be sure to have a message written on every note card for the children. Though the groups can share one among them, it will be easier for them to recite the message if each child has his or her own card from which to read.
