Here is another Jan Brett Christmas book we read during our Circle Time last week. It is The Twelve Days of Christmas. It is the traditional Christmas song put with the gorgeous illustrations of Jan Brett. I love pretty much all things old-fashioned, and this song and picture book combination is just that!
After reading/singing this book aloud, we began making Christmas gifts for my good friends and Classical Conversations tutors, Miss Amber and Miss Becca. Since this song/book is all about gift giving at Christmas time, it was perfect!
"On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree."
We made wet felted Christmas ball ornaments. Then we needled felted a dove on each one.
