Our Family Tree Projects started arriving today. We could call these Christmas trees but we won't. We will call them Terrific Trees and Winter Trees and Family Tree Projects. Just to be safe and so no one gets offended. So far, it has worked. The majority of the trees come back green and red, BUT I absolutely love the purple and pink ones and/or the Superhero ones. For real. My partner just got a THOR tree today. We weren't sure when we were first
I just got a tree today covered in coconut. I do NOT like coconut. The smell is killing me. I may just have to disguise it with some febreeze. I don't know. Right now, the coconut is winning.
Here's the tree we send home (we enlarge it on the copier):
I also give the kids an award (as in, I staple it right up next to the tree. We don't have a ceremony or anything because I have to be honest and true and married to my core curriculum).
Here is a partial pic of the Family Trees from last year. The trees are on "snow" because you never know. It could snow here. I haven't finished this year's board because
I haven't taken down Harvest Hank the trees are still trickling in. They are due by Friday.
I have a letter that I send home explaining the project and I'm including it HERE. It's editable so you can change the date or whatever you might want to. Remember, it's editable. My fonts won't show up. And I did not use whatever font shows up (unless it's cute and then I did). Click any of the pics to grab whatever you might like.
Well, I am off to stalk a little and then catch up on the Housewives. I caught a little bit of the end of Atlanta and I believe I am traumatized from Kandi's 35th birthday party. Much like her mom. Anyone else? I am thinking of Phoebe from Friends. "My eyes! My eyes!"
