Perfect Teacher Idea! First day project: Friend Tree. Everyone puts their thumb print on the tree then teacher later frames it and hangs it as a reminder that we are all friends.
Make Christmas tree ornaments from folded paper or old book pages. Add a piece of paper for a trunk. Punch a hole at the top for adding twine or ribbon for hanging. There are many printables you can use, some are Christmas songs - would make a more festive look.
