Thankful Tree-Each night, the kids will take a leaf and write something they are thankful for on it. Then they will place it up on a branch of the tree. By the end of the month the tree will be filled with colorful leaves and thankful thoughts.
Using a bird and tree theme with the title "Welcome to _____ (teacher's name) Nest" is a fun title for classroom door display for the beginning of the school year. Might go nice with my new bird theme!
How to make paper dogwood flowers - great spring project for classroom. Could plant a bare branch in plaster-of-Paris in a small bucket and have the class decorate it. Make a bird's nest and put in the top branch to go along with unit on Spring.
