In this corner, not a turkey, cornucopia or cluster of maize in sight:
While in this corner, a lone cornucopia, autumn quilt, and honeycomb turkey are slowly herded out by snowy border and a bare staple board:
December is a short month, so I stretch the room's seasonal decor and student displays with a winter forest theme instead of just winter holidays:
I cut large trees in green, light blue, and white off-the-roll paper...
...and use the larger scraps to make smaller trees for my students:
I stapled two trees together and stuffed them with tissue paper or coffee filters (which can be re-used for other crafts at a later date):
I love how the happy colors peek through:
Then I added some fiesta fringe (I find rolls of it in the gift-wrap section of stores like Michael's or Hobby Lobby):
And voila! Three stuffed paper trees...
...which join the plain trees, as well as the patterned trees my students made (here's purple/white/blue/purple/white/blue):
Now our math board looks like this:
Our hallway board looks like this:
... and as soon as these dry, we'll have a touch of winter glitter to add to the forest:
The Stars used red glitter too! Check back tomorrow to see what they made!
