Elf in the Classroom

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Ultimate-Classroom-Elf-Kit-1013397
 I can't believe I am going on my fourth year of doing the #elfintheclassroom! Where has the time gone? I get completely and over the top obsessed over this #elfintheclassroom every year! I can't wait to show you what I have planned for the elf arrival! 

I have included all of the above which is pretty self explanatory. Click on any image for a complete description. 
 
In the meantime, take a trip down memory lane and check out some of my previous #elfintheclassroom escapades. Click on each year to go back to that post.

Last year, Michelle from Apples and ABC's and I teamed up & hosted 2 linky parties. If you use the hashtag #elfintheclassroom on Instagram you will see a TON of other ideas for the elf in the classroom.

I created The Ultimate Classroom Elf Kit last year but never blogged about it...whoopsie. I added nearly 30 pages of fun! This kit is up to 158 pages & you can purchase for ONLY $5! I like to keep my prices low and affordable just for you!
Above shows you just some of the pages I added. This is for a keepsake for your students. I will use red construction paper (9x12) and fold it in half. Place the sheets in and make the booklets so your classroom elf can deliver them. Of course, make enough copies of the daily elf report for the amount of days the elf is appearing. As you can see in the calendar at the bottom of this post, our elf will appear 15 times.

As you know I am a huge fan of Daily 5. My students are obsessed with writing. I decided to add some exciting #elfintheclassroom components to meet the CCSS standards I have to hit. 
We do a class book together (shared writing). We also have journal prompts to write in their December journal. What do you think they want to write about in December??? Either they want to write to the elf or about the elf or about themselves. 
This kit takes care of all of that. There is a TON of writing papers, lists, graphic organizers, & notes to fill your entire month!

 We also have to hit all those ELA & Math standards as well! Your students will just FLIP over my "Elftastic Unit"! My students absolutely love each and every station! Check it out HERE!

  In case you missed this FREEBIE. Grab these signs for your classroom and I also made some for your school! I added about 5 new styles a few days ago! 
If you want the calendar, right click & print! 
I am giving away 5 kits to the first 5 stalkers who leave their email! I will be checking after I get finished with my lesson plans! Have fun! 
Happy Elfing!
