I can't believe Christmas break is only one week away! Woohoo! I am in desperate need of some rest and relaxation. This is my favorite time of the year. I LOVE all of the beautiful Christmas lights and decorating the house and my classroom.
This year we had a little scout elf come to our room again! I am having so much fun with this little lady. My class has named her Lillybell… How adorable is that!?!?! I have been posting all of the things Lillybell is doing in our classroom on my Instagram using the #elfonourclassroomshelf. Here are some of the silly things she has done the last couple of weeks:
Santa sent a special gift to our classroom… our new elf Lillybell!
The students each wrote a note to Santa and we asked Lillybell to take them to him that night. One kiddo wrote that another student said the elf wasn't real. Seeing that this child was going to tattle on him for saying that, the student quickly apologized to Santa in his letter :).
Lillybell decorated our room by writing her name all over the place!
We are working on "How to" writing in our classroom, so Lillybell thought she would join the fun and write her own "How to"… How to be on the nice list.
Then she tied all of our Dr. Seuss characters up with twinkle lights!
The next day, Lillybell and another second grade teacher's elf, Snowflake, had a party at the copy machine! They took some pretty cute pictures.
Here is a close up of the cute pictures Lillybell and Snowflake took at their "Copy Party".
Lillybell helped dress up our tree by adding some cute ornaments and a few presents around the bottom.
Lillybell tried to add a touch of Christmas to our room by putting up some twinkle lights… she broke half the strand in the process. Oops!
We had a rough day in our classroom, so Lillybell needed a break. Her dog Steven watched the kids that day so she could be well rested for the next day.
The kiddos were so good and let Lillybell rest the day before. She decided it was a good day to relax in a bubble bath.
You have to admit… Lillybell had this coming :).
This is just the start of all the fun we are having with the elf on our classroom shelf! I can't wait to show you what she has been up to this week.
