As a wishing you a very Merry Christmas
, I'm pricing this packet at just $3.95, instead of the usual $4.95 price for a packet this size.
"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.
, 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”
* 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.
