"Who wants to be an elf?" I certainly do, and hopefully your kiddos will too!

“Wanted: Elf Help” is a super-fun, creative writing prompt.

Collect everyone’s page, add the cover of your choice, and you have an “awwww-dorable” class-made book.

There are 15, elf-themed pages for your kiddos to choose from.

To make sure that you have a nice assortment for your class book, simply run off only 2 copies of each page, which will be enough for a class of 30 kiddos.

For pre-writing, have students fill out the “My best qualities for being Santa’s helper” worksheet.

There are 2 options to choose from.

They can refer to this list to write their letter to Santa, convincing him that they’d make a terrific helper.

Although students can certainly write about their real qualifications, toss out a more creative option, where students think outside the box.

Have them pretend to be a “real” elf applying for the job, and go from there.

I’ve included a silly letter from Jingle, my made up elf, that you can use to help explain things, and jump start those creative juices.

I'm sure that thinking up a name for their "elf-self" will be fun.

To add to the hoopla, I’ve also included:

* 3, “I’m an official elf helper for Santa” badges

* A “Congratulations! You’re hired” certificate.

* 2, Wanted Posters to hang up to peak students’ interest and introduce the lesson.

Later, you can use them for a festive holiday bulletin board, if you want to display students’ letters before you make them into a book.

* There’s also a “We’re Qualified” poster you can use for the center of that display as well.

Because of the way I designed the pages, you can re-use the templates for other writing activities you may have throughout the month.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you and your little elves a magical December.
