Our chicka chicka boom boom tree was just too cute to put away after the first of the year! So, I found a nice little place in the classroom for it. Sonoco, our classroom Partner in Education, donated the trunk of the tree which is a big tube. The top of the tree is a green umbrella covered with green bulletin board paper. At the beginning of the year I had coconuts made out of brown balloons but those did not last!
This is where the kids meet for the Morning Meeting, Kid News, or any time we gather at the carpet.
