Today we learned about the origin of the Christmas Tree. We also read a book called The Little Christmas Tree by Karl Ruhmann. It was about a little boy who found a fir tree in the woods that was just his size and he wanted to chop it down for Christmas. Instead he and his family went back and decorated it every year.
During center time we all got to make our own Christmas tree complete with ornaments, garland and a star on top. Some of us even made presents underneath.
