The second grade made these paper ring Advent calendars. We began by writing everyone’s name in the second grade on thin strips of paper. (The yellow “star” ring got 2 names to be opened on Christmas Day). The idea being, that each day a ring would be opened and they would pray for the student whose name they had written. Once we had everyone covered, we started at the top and worked out way down. We glued the rings in a special pattern so that the finished Advent calendar would resemble a Christmas tree with red ornaments.
