This kindness elf will help teach your students respect, sharing, caring, & learning through the month of December. You will have your students focused on giving and not receiving and bettering themselves. This unit provides daily activities from the elf that ask the students to do for others or better themselves. This “elf” based unit is created to teach your students the true meaning of the holidays! This elf will come to your classroom on the first school day in December. He will come with a poster and a note. You could also buy a real stuffed elf if you prefer. Your note to the students will explain that he is here to teach them learning, helping, sharing and caring. The students will then work together to come up with a name for their elf. They will also get mini booklets to record and write in each day for the daily elf activities.
Each day the students will find the elf in a different place in the classroom. The elf will have a different note for the children to read, or for you to read to them. With the note is an assigned activity from the elf to teach the children life-long skills and have fun doing them. Your Elf will have your class visiting and making simple things for all of the staff around the building!
