My first year of teaching I made the mistake of creating a "Santa" themed project. I had one kindergartener that shouted out "He aint weel!" I was shocked and responded right back, "He is too weel." After this project was over I promised myself, no matter how awesome the project, I will never do a "Santa" themed project again. Instead I try to have each grade do some sort of a Christmas tree.
4th graders completed this patterned tree.
3rd graders completed this Christmas music project.
5th grade complete this Picasso inspired tree.
