So many families I know are getting ready to have a good time with their little elves during the Christmas season. So, I decided to let my little kindergartners join in on the fun. Every morning after Thanksgiving, we'll have to find our new little buddy in the classroom and see what he's been up to during the night. This tradition is, in most ways, purely for fun... but we'll be journaling all about his adventures, so it's also motivating student writing! Or, at least, I hope it will.
What's he doing around so early? Offended he was never invited to enjoy Thanksgiving! I hardly recognized him in his 1621 disguise! What a tricky little guy.
