Making our class Christmas tree

This week Room 14 decided to make a DIY Christmas tree for our class. A few students' found sticks and branches that had fallen off trees around the field to make the tree with. We then ordered the branches into a shape that made a Christmas tree and tied them together so we could hang it on the wall. Check out our pictures... we will be adding decorations over the next few weeks that we make. I think the kids are pretty proud of themselves!
