Festival of Trees



Every year for Thanksgiving Break homework we give a fun little activity for our first graders to do at home with their family. We send home a large piece of green construction paper with a Christmas Tree stenciled on in pencil. The assignment is to decorate the tree at home with your family over the Thanksgiving holiday. We ask them to send back their finished product. We hang all the trees in our classroom windows for everyone to enjoy. We call this the festival of trees.

  1. Cute family project! We have the kids decorate a house and write about their family traditions. I really like decorating a tree a whole lot more though! I will keep this in mind for next year!
