I love the month of December in my kindergarten classroom. My own kids are teenagers and even though they are excited about Christmas, it just doesn't compare to the excitement of young children. I feel very blessed to share in my 5 year olds' spirit of Christmas each year.
This year I decided to have an "Elf on the Shelf" in my classroom. (I received a free one from the company.) I have a very well-behaved class. So I figured that they could handle the craziness of finding the elf in a different place each morning.
They love finding the elf each morning. I love seeing their smiles when they find him. They also love to share his escapades with the teachers across the hall.
Here are some pictures of our elf from last week:
Our elf, Red, played in the magnetic letters on Tuesday night.....
and he left the students a message.
On Thursday, he brought the class a special treat from the North Pole, to celebrate
the last day our student from the local college was with the class. (He began eating
one before the class came in.)
