This is a fun seasonal lesson to practice writing statements and questions. An elf craftivity template is included, along with a dialogue bubble that can be attached. In the dialogue bubble, an elf statement and a then a question an elf might ask is written. I used Photo Booth and iphoto on my teacher laptop to add student's photos to the elf face. Be sure to look at the notation showing "top" when adding the photo face to the elf face template.
This lesson lended itself to a great whole group brainstorming session. What would an elf say? What would an elf ask? We made a list and then students chose from the list or thought of their own .s and ?s.
