The show that I'm doing is a Sally K. Albrecht and Jay Althouse production/mini-musical called "Fiesta! The Legend of the Poinsettia!" This show tells the Mexican folk tale of the origins of the "Flor de Navidad" or Poinsettia plant. Here's a little blurb from the Musick8 website:
As Nochebuena (Christmas Eve) approaches, all of the villagers celebrate the wonderful traditions of Las Posadas - from the nightly candlelit processions to the breaking of the piñata. But young Alicia is troubled, as she has no gift to present in the plaza on Christmas Eve. She learns that giving from her heart is magical, as her lowly gift blossoms into the fiery poinsettia plant.
Don't reinvent the wheel
Anyway, if you look at this bulletin board compared to the last one you can see some similarities. Here's my challenge to you, what can you do to preserve some of the work you did with the last bulletin board and still make it new? What can you do to cut down on bulletin board creation time and still make it feel fresh? This feels like one of those "Highlights" seek and find activities, but can you spot the differences? :D
special elements - creating the poinsettias
Then I try and make the bulletin board specific to the concert coming up. This concert centers around the poinsettia plant and Mexican traditions celebrated during "Las Posadas." I found the piñata, guitar, and fiesta graphics in the teachers lounge at the beginning of this year in our "teacher rummage sale" where people leave things that they don't want anymore. Easy peasey freebie!
