Websites add sparkle to Christmas in the classroom

Teacher Alex Wilson, who blogs at Alex's Class, explains how his students are using a variety of creative media tools to help celebrate Christmas. It's been a very busy few weeks in class for these students. The class had a discussion about which kinds of work we would like to do for Christmas and the children decided they would like to make a song, read a poem and make a tree for the class. Composing and recording a Christmas song was quite a challenge. After listening to various different examples and after a vote the students decided that they would like to make a pop/rock song. First, the class worked on the lyrics and thought of lots of different words relating to Christmas.
