Behind the Scenes at a Winter Wonderland

December 13, 2005 – Posted at 5:54 p.m. CST

BROOKLAND, AR -- Every year parents pack the cameras and load up for the kid's annual holiday program. But just what goes into planning a "winter wonderland?"

“They just come one time a week, so it takes a long time if you are learning 10 to 14 songs,” said elementary music teacher Tammy Robertson.

More than 100 students from six different first grade classes are singing and signing together.

“It’s about Christmas!” said first grade student Blake Martin.

But it's not easy teaching or controlling such a big group....they started practicing way back in September.

“You have to know all the signs and all the motions, and you've got to do it at the right speed,” said student Kylie Meredith.

“Every kid at Brookland Elementary gets to participate in music program one time or another,” said Robertson.

And there are some big responsibilities...

“I have to push Jesus’ birthday cake, I get to push the cake,” laughed student Kailee Hitton.
