The holiday season is upon us! Do you decorate your library or classroom for Christmas? I decorate for every season for Christmas is my favorite. I always put up a tree and string lights around the door. (Don’t tell the fire marshall!) A few years ago I started having the students make ornaments to put on the tree: Christmas ornament book recommendations! This is such a fun and engaging activity. You can use it with students in any grade level, the kids love to make them and they make your library look so festive! What could be better?
Making the ornaments
- Display a paper cutout Christmas tree on a wall in your classroom, your door or in the hallway (wherever you have room) and have students tape the ornaments to the tree.
- If you have a Christmas tree in your room you can put a ribbon through the top of the ornament and hang them on the tree.
- You can string the ornaments together and make a chain.
- You can make a display and pair the book and the ornament together.
