THIS PROJECT IS SO MUCH FUN!
How many funny or silly Christmas trees have you seen
left in the "for sale lot" ? No one wanted them! They
were too fat, too skinny, too empty, or too crooked.
Well, guess what? They were still full of the love and
the spirit of Christmas! This lesson gives the children an opportunity to create their own " funny triangle tree" in the
happiness of the holiday - growing that tree "any way
they want ", in their very own original way, and feeling
good about it.
It is a good social lesson as well...helping children realize
that not everything "good" is perfect! The different
qualities in the appearance or personalities of
other children are to be accepted. It helps them see the
good in the world around them, and they learn that it
comes in many shapes and sizes!
PROJECT OVERVIEW-PURPOSE: To provide the primary student
with holiday related quiet independent seat work for small muscle
development and exposure to creative pattern design. Also, helps the children realize that the special things come in all different kinds of "packaging".
The project also provides the teacher with printables to be used when independent quiet seat work is needed. GREAT BULLETIN BOARD!
