Every year I make my students ornaments. This year's ornaments turned out really cute thanks to the Cricut machine. As a child my parents would get me ornaments each year. I was never very excited about an ornament. However, when it came time for me to have my very own Christmas tree I very much appreciated the ornaments that my parents had saved for me. Each ornament reminded me of something that I was interested in or a phase of my childhood. My hope is that your children will look back on their ornament and be reminded of fond memories from their 5th grade year.
