Fun to use with Your Elf on a Shelf activities...."Teacher.... There's an elf in our classroom!" Does an elf come to visit your classroom around Christmas time? If so, then this little poster activity might be a way to open and close the activity. There are a few parts to fill in when he arrives and a few to finish out when it's time for the elf to go.
IMPORTANT... Everyone tends to introduce their elf a different way. This poster may or may not go along with your plan. Please read all parts of the poster BEFORE you buy. That way you will be able to use the poster and won't be disappointed :-) Thank you ahead of time.
This little poster is 8.5 x 11 poster (landscape).
Please feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like, but it was designed to have two parts: one for the day of introduction and a second to close out the 'elf season' by reflecting.
This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
The elf poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.
The sections for the students to fill out are:
*place for name
*When I first say him, he was.....
*mini sketch of where he was first spotted
*Adjectives to describe him....
*He is in our classroom because.....
*possible names: list 3 (come back as a class to choose a final name)
*Lately, our class has been (check one) naughty or nice....explain
*Our classroom elf will report to:
*Little elf image with a quote..."My elf rules...."You would discuss a few rules with the class that you want them to follow. Possibly no touching the elf.
Part 2 (pass back out or come back to before the holiday break)
*Elf Reflections- 2 photo snapshots for an illustration of:
-funniest place he was found
-the biggest mess he made
*There are then blank lines for students to write. This is open ended. You can have them write what they thought about the elf visiting, best memory, or whatever else you choose.
