With Christmas just around the corner, first graders thought what better way to get in the holiday spirit than decorating our AFS Elementary Christmas tree! Last week, students gathered pinecones during their Physical Education class with Ms. Athina, and this week they used the pinecones to make natural ornaments in their English class with Ms. Michaela and Ms. Lexi! With the help of some googly eyes, pom-poms, and pipe cleaners, we magically transformed ordinary pinecones into festive reindeer! They were just the ornaments our school tree needed to be complete for the holiday season. Throughout the month of December, our first graders will be learning Christmas songs, vocabulary, and doing crafts to learn about this special time of year in exciting new ways!
