Nutcrackers

Kindergarten started on their Nutcrackers today! First grade will start next week after their concentric circles!

We are connecting geometric shapes to our nutcrackers by drawing them out of geometric shapes and with symmetry. We are listening to Tchaikovsky’s ballet while we work on our drawings.

Nutcrackers have a rich history that goes back about 300 years ago in Germany. The carving of nutcrackers developed as a cottage industry in forested rural areas of Germany. They provided a supplemental income during the winter months or when other industries, such as mining, dwindled.

Nutcrackers only became popular in North America about 50 years ago after the Second World War. American soldiers stationed in Germany began sending nutcrackers home to loved ones as gifts. Thus began the tradition of collecting nutcrackers in North America.

As well, when Tchaikovsky’s ballet, The Nutcracker Suite premiered in St. Petersburg in 1892, the popularity of nutcrackers grew tremendously. The ballet became very popular in the United States in the early 1950’s and ignited the passion for these fascinating creatures. The strong following of this classic production greatly increased the popularity of collecting nutcrackers in America.
