This year I started reading more about Elf on the Shelf in the classroom and nearly all of my students have their own elf at home. I was extra super jealous. I decided to email my parents and ask if it would be ok. Guess what?! Everyone was on board! I'm so excited!
***Our elf showed up while we were at recess. She had her note from Santa rolled up in her arms and the Elf of the Shelf book behind her! Christmas music was blasting and I was of course so annoyed. (Wink wink!) "WHY is Christmas music blasting?"
"Mrs. Tice! We have AN ELF!"
"Don't touch her! She'll lose her magic!"
"It's a girl! She has earrings!"
"What does her note say?!"
It was great! We voted on her name and it's Rosie. (My favorite choices were Pinky and Glitterbell! I do LOVE me some glitter!)
I'm using a great product for my Elf in the Classroom that you can check out here!
Rosie graffitied our classroom with her name. Here' how my students will find her tomorrow morning:
Seriously, I hope she doesn't fall. I'm so short and was standing on a desk when I did this. I couldn't actually see what I was doing!
PS: If you read my Currently you should know I STILL haven't unpacked. Ugh. I hate unpacking! My poor husband is one of those people that unpacks thirty seconds after we return from a trip. I know it's driving him nuts!
