The Great Spruce!

With snowy weather here at last, NHCS Kindergarten can no longer walk to the library once a month - but I can go there! I brought this book with me, The Great Spruce by John Duvall. It tells about a young boy who has a favorite evergreen tree and the compromise he suggests when folks want to cut down his tree for their far-away city's Christmas tree. There were notes at the end that showed how the author had a personal connection to this very story!
We made a quick two-triangle Christmas tree, then decorated it with stickers and gems. But before we did that, we made special top-down and bottom-up cuts so the tree could stand and be three-dimensional! We added yarn at the top so we could hang it up at home!
