Recycled Paper and a Christmas Tree

Thursday, December 18, 2008

I mentioned last week that a friend at work was coming into our classroom to teach a lesson on paper making using discarded materials. It was meant to be a fun, creative way of teaching the kids about recycling and conserving natural resources. Well, she came and the kids had so much fun. They each got to make their own sheet of paper. She gave up a lot of her time in the classroom and at home setting this up for the kids. As a little thank you, I used her paper (the flower and lining of the box) to create a little box containing a thank you and some chocolates:)

We finally got our tree last night! It has been raining a lot here lately. We have been trying to pick a dry night to get our tree and last night was the night. Now it feels more like Christmastime around here. Tonight we will decorate it and wrap some presents. I made dinner (if you can believe it) so that we will have more time after Ryan gets home to relax. The cabinets come tomorrow for the kitchen and I am really excited to see them.
