Happy December friends!! Let the Christmas Break countdown begin! So, thanks to the great suggestions on my last post, project: Elf on a Shelf has begun. I wrapped it and put it in the deep freezer over night to get nice and cold. Then, the office called down to my class to say we had a delivery. I purposely sent the most dramatic vibrant students because I knew they would overreact make a big deal out of the temperature. It was addressed to my class from SANTA! They were SOOO excited! We read the letter and then opened the box. Then, they all gave suggestions for his name. Suggestions included: Elfie, Hannah (random right?), Kevin, Jolly, Jingle Bell, and the winner “Snowflake.” OMG they were off their rocker excited about Snowflake. We read the book and put his box on the cubbies so he could watch us. I just knew the kids would be so quiet when the elf came to town…wrong! They sang Christmas songs (which I don’t mind), screamed at him, they were nuts. Now the classroom next door was walking on pins and needles being good for their elf. Luck teacher elf! So, while the kids were in activities Snowflake split and went back to the North Pole because of their “poor choices.” Don’t worry, he left a note and will be back tomorrow…baring good behavior. Fingers crossed people! I paid $30 for good behavior for the next 11 days and it needs to work. Haha! I have a lot of fun stuff planned with this little guy. Hopefully tomorrow will be great…it just has to be…its Friday!! Here’s my letter from Santa, another freebie from my Elf Unit. You can purchase the rest of it here.
Have a great day tomorrow. May the ELF be with you!!
