I am soooo excited about doing Elf on a Shelf with my kiddos. I went to Target to buy it along with the DVD. I wrote a unit to go along with it too. J I made their Elf Journals yesterday. Below is the cover page for your downloading pleasure. J If you want to purchase the whole packet, click here. J
Anywho, today we watched the 25 minute DVD and it was adorable. It is created based off of the actual book. If you use just any stuffed elf (which is totally fine, I used to do that too) then it may not be as effective (with the movie that is). The movie goes through how the elves get their “assignment”, how they are packaged (which looks just like the box I got at Target), and the rules. The kids loved it…LOVED IT!! When it was over, they were asking if Santa would send an elf to watch them at school? Needless to say, they have no idea of their teacher’s master plan. Bwhahah ha haaaa! (Insert creepy laugh, haha!)
So, I brought home the box tonight and wrapped it. I addressed it to Mrs. Radke’s class with a return address from the North Pole. Tomorrow I am going to ask our sweet secretary to call down to my class and say we have a special delivery. My students are going to be soooo excited! I hope it makes the next 13 days of school more bearable. I’ll let ya’ll know how it goes. Have a great day tomorrow!!
