It's that time of the year when the Elf on the Shelf has found it's way into our Kindergarten class. The Elf arrived this week in a wrapped package with a letter, and some other items it needed for the long journey (a tissue paper pillow, two half eaten crackers, and some marshmallows). The students were so excited to see the Elf that we named it Sparkle. Here is the letter from Sparkle.
We all made the Elf some items that it would need while staying with us, a table, bed, and we made some books for the Sparkle to read. One of our students decided Sparkle was hungry so she left her chocolate bars. In return, Sparkle brought two packages of smelly markers since he or she overheard that our markers were getting dry.
Now onto some other happenings in our room, we were getting creative with the letter J this week, some students have started to make jaguars, and some are just decorating it anyway they like.
This boy took our linking/snap cubes and made a guitar, this was too amazing to not share a picture of.
We are finding our students like to go through paper very quickly so we are trying to encourage them to use our 'beautiful junk' in the classroom. This was very creative of a student who said he was making a robot. This is a great way to get our students to use their creativity.
Lastly, we are busy getting ready for our Christmas concert, these are the stars that will be on top of our costumes, can you guess what we will be? OR what song we are singing?
