We did another project called In This Box. We had to bring in a wrapped box. We typed a paragraph about anything we want in the world. Some people asked to bring back family members who are not alive. Finally we get to move on to Christmas Crafts. For Christmas Crafts Mrs.Ward came and did sock snowmen. Mrs.Walsh and Andrew came and made snowman ornaments. Mrs.Mortali came in and did snowflakes. Finally Mrs.Abate came in and gave everyone gingerbread ornaments that you can’t eat. We had a very fun holiday.
