The Adventures of Snowy the Elf

Hi friends!

And the countdown continues, only 17 days until Christmas! The tree is up, the decorations are displayed, the shopping is in process, and our elf has arrived!

This is the very first time I incorporate the Elf on the Shelf in my classroom, and my kiddos are loving it! A very cold package was delivered on Monday. Everyone was curious about what was in that special delivery package.
Sorry about the poor lighting on this pic. I guess the North Pole workers were working double-shifts and were extremely tired!

Everybody helped opened the package and we read the Elf on the Shelf book. The reactions from my kiddos varied. Some were pretty excited about the elf's arrival and some of my students were scared. I was asked lots of questions: how big will be the elf? will he be scary? will he take me to the North Pole? will he bring presents? do we need to leave him cookies and milk like Santa? This "simple" introduction took a loooong time! 

On Tuesday, we had the so much anticipated visit. Choosing "her" name was an adventure itself. After negotiations, voting, and consensus our elf was named Snowy, like Snow White!.....so cute!
Snowy arrived into our classroom with some very nice behavior cards. Courtesy of the North Pole and Rebecca Stone - you can download them {{HERE}}.

Day 2: Our mischievous Snowy appeared on top of our fire alarm. 

Day 3: Snowy appeared on our white board. To have a closer look to everything that was going on in our classroom.
Stay tuned to learn more about the adventures of Snowy the Elf.

Keep learning!
