Christmas Tree Ornaments

Last week, Cole got a last-minute request to provide some literacy-based ornaments to be used on some Christmas trees at the Governor's Mansion for the holidays. The trees will be part of the official Holiday Tour. The ornaments turned out so cute!

Mrs. Knowles' class read The Night Before Christmas. They drew some great illustrations and added quotes from the book to their ornaments.

I do believe that's a pretty amazing illustration!

Mrs. Kaeser's class did the book The Rainbow Fish.
They made rainbow fish with sequins and cd's!

They turned out great!

Mrs. Bozeman's class did the book Where's Waldo?

They added their own names to the title and drew miniature versions of themselves and dropped them into the ornaments with some streamers.

See the little person inside?

Ms. Ridings' class read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. They made little palm trees with letter beads.

And, Mrs. Irvine's class did The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They made little fingerprint caterpillars onto glass ornaments stuffed to look like apples.

Mrs. Haslam loved the ornaments and a few of them could even be seen on Talk of the Town this morning when she gave a tour of the holiday decorations for the show! So exciting!

So, a very special THANK YOU to all the teachers and students who worked so hard to get these done in such short notice!
