Elf on the Shelf in the Classroom

I just introduced "Elf on the Shelf" in my classroom today and the students loved it! It's such a fun way to get into the holiday spirit and is a great tool to use to enforce good behavior.

First, I read the story to the class.
Next, we voted on a name for our classroom elf. After many choices, the class voted on Bella!

Once our elf had a name, we decorated the door. After all, she needs a way to get in and out of the classroom!
Lastly, we did a craft activity. Students created their own elf and wrote about it!
I printed the craft activity from Teachers Pay Teachers using a variety of worksheets:

Both activities are free to download! 

On Monday, the class will walk into Bella's first mischevious activity!
Someone was a bad elf!

Stay tuned for updates on Bella's adventures!
