This week, we read the story "Night Tree" by Eve Bunting.
In this story, a family goes to the woods just on the edge of town to get their tree. Instead of cutting it down and bringing it home to decorate, they actually decorate the tree with popcorn, birdseed, fruit and nuts. Then they leave the tree in the woods with all the goodies for the animals so they can enjoy a holiday treat, too.
We made our own illustrations of the "Night Tree". We hung them in the hallway near the office because they turned out so beautiful! If you get a chance, check them out!
We had a surprise visit from the choir from Eagan High School. They sang some holiday songs for us and they sounded just awesome!
