I actually ended up not putting this up in my classroom... We were lucky enough to get the display case in the World Language hallway (which actually gets a lot of traffic). It'll be up there all month (end of November to beginning of January) - a great way to advertise German in the school!
Overall I really like how it turned out...
|Here's the full display... or as much of it as I could get to fit in the picture|

|Here's the other half of the board, decorated with generic Christmas-y stuff :)|
On the half day before Thanksgiving break started, I had most of my German classes help out by making snowflakes. They were surprisingly into it. Turns out, the kids were initially pretty bad at making snowflakes (lots of squares, got some jack-o-lantern-like ones, very distorted/lopsided ones...). I ended up using Paper Snowflakes to show them how to make them look... well, a little bit more like snowflakes. It worked pretty well and as you can see, we made a lot of them.
