We’re back from our Thanksgiving Break and ready to hit it hard for 15 days before our Winter Break. I decided to host an Elf on the Library Shelf this year, to add a bit of fun and magic to our learning space.
I can’t make it too complicated, or I’ll get discouraged. So, I’m just using simple materials like index cards and craft sticks.
(What you can’t tell from the photo is that our Elf on the Shelf is perched next to a solar dancing elf from the Dollar Tree. That solar elf boogies all day long!) Our students had a giggle out of it today.
I thought the elf would hold the sign, but his arms are soft, so they couldn’t really hold anything. I improvised with a binder clip.
I could probably get away with only changing the elf scenario once a week, but I’m going to change it and post about it every day. Because a lot of my students still believe that he magically moves around at night while we are away from school. And I like that.
I may have also gone a little elf crazy on our library doors.
I hope you have some elf magic in your library at this time of year.
