In the Classroom: The Year of the Perfect Christmas

Anne Phillips read and discussed The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree by Gloria Houston.  Students were excited to learn that the story takes place right in Spruce Pine!  The main character is given the angel from the tree as a gift, and in reference to the book students created their own angels to take home for their Christmas trees.  They used lace doilies for the body, silver cups cake papers for the wings, circle cut outs for the head and students added hair, eyes, etc. with colored pencils and glitter.  Lots of GLITTER!  When they were done, they decorated the classroom Christmas tree with their creations.
