6 days of writing prompts. I'm going with the premise that your elf on the shelf is actually a time traveller. Gives students the beginning of an adventure with specific details that reference a time period or a certain atmosphere/event, and then they will write the rest of the little story. The elf's "voice" is humorous. I tell them to write a page for each prompt (spaces provided on here). You could have them write one a day as a writing warm up, or have them do a bunch all at once. Fun! Younger students and older students love it.
