This year, my first Elf on the Shelf came to visit our classroom. I started Elves early November... everywhere I went. I think they were following me :) I fought it. A little. Then I realized I had to bring the magic to my classroom....and the adventure began.
Let's do this...picture style!
I had a ball doing this!
I was more worried about the Elf than any lesson plans :)
The kids adored him and the 'extra' work made it all worth it.
I look forward to continuing this traditions in my classroom.
I may buy an extra one next year since my own two kids were quite jealous about my classroom elf.
There was no mentioning of the guy in the red suit. No upset parents...woohooo!
One more post related to our awesome friend coming tomorrow. Sorry for the extra post in one day :)
