Today we applied to be elves at the North Pole! First we discussed all of the things that a "good" elf might do.
How to be an Excellent Elf
-Clean the sleigh (we had to discuss the difference between “slay” and “sleigh”)
-Help Santa eat the cookies and drink the milk
-Wash the reindeer
-Make toys and fix toys
-Watch out for kids that are being naughty or nice and report back to headquarters
Then we started writing. Students that finished early, practiced being helpful elves by helping students that were still working.
This was a great activity to end our first day in December at school. How do you get your class in the Christmas spirit?
