Since getting a Christmas tree is a little bit difficult here in the Alaskan tundra I made it a point of turning my paint easel into a makeshift Christmas tree.  The students said they were ok with not painting for a few weeks during the Christmas season.  For the past few weeks students have been busy making presents for their friends in the class.  Some students made pictures/picture frames of them and their friend, some students made glitter ornaments, and some students made penguin thermometers!
