Do you have a classroom elf who visits the students each day in December with a fun message or trick? Or, do many of your students have an elf who lives on a shelf at home? Extend students' thinking with this narrative writing prompt, which asks them what they would do if they were an elf who lives on a shelf.
This product encourages students to critically think while enhancing their Common Core writing skills for narrative writing (W.2.3, W.3.3, W.4.3). Students are provided with a graphic organizer which helps them organize their thoughts into a sequential story with a closing. Once the students have completed their brainstorming, then they can transfer the information to a final story board. This would look awesome on a bulletin board or in the hallway!
