What do you think your Elf on the Shelf does while you are asleep at night? My students and I use our creative writing skills to come up with a new adventure every day!
Sometimes, our elf, Steve, writes us notes on the Smart Board that pop up during our morning meeting. He leaves pictures and tells us a little about the fun he had at the North Pole the night before. This gives us a place to start. Last night, he told us he went bowling with his friends at the North Pole! We had a great time writing about that one!
What will your little friends come up with?!?!?
I always copy a cover page for each student in black and white and then as many pages as I think we will need to get from the start date to Christmas vacation! Students must also write the date correctly at the top.
I teach 4th grade so we discussed "Point of View". We are writing our diary entries from Steve the Elf's point of view.
