The 'frozen' elf has arrived and currently

Monday, December 2, 2013
The best part of our job besides lovin' on kids has got to be hammin it up and just being an actress/actor.  I have no shame and just get all crazy for my kids.  So...with that being said I asked our principal this year to deliver our her son is in my class this year and I thought it would be so fun for her.  She walked in and told the class a very cold package arrived from the North Pole.  So as you can imagine we had so much fun with are some pics...

My principal walking the package around so the kids could touch it.

We made these cute reindeer craftivities today...they had a blast and we can check off that we hit a CCSS with it.  Boo-yah!  You can grab it here:

I had to get a picture with this sweetie because her shirt today said love your cute is she?!!?

Lastly my currently ~  have been craving hot chocolate for some reason and I have too much gray to deal with right now...ugh!  I am obsessed with our elf and love thinking up things I can do with her each day...I think I am loving it so much because my own precious kids are too old for it so I can enjoy it at school.

Here's where they will find Snowflake tomorrow...each morning they look forward to our helper of the day...Well as you can see she wants to be picked for it.... LOL  What are some things you are doing with your elf this month?  Link on up with Farley and tell us what you are up to.

Oh' boy fourth grade


  1. I just got back from getting my hair cut and highlighted. It does feel good! We had the same tradition with our children. There are so many ornaments with so many memories. Love that tradition!

  2. Our elf arrived this afternoon frozen as well!!! They named him Charlie. Tomorrow he will be in the reading center with a book. Love the shirt your student is wearing. How cute!

  4. I never thought to do an elf in the classroom....if I was still teaching (even thought I was in middle school) I would have totally done this after reading your blog! Enjoy your moments with the fun!

  5. Love that your principal delivered your elf!!!! Adorable! I don't know what I'd do with the elf so I haven't started that tradition in my classroom. Found you through Farley.


  6. The other kindergarten teacher brought in our special delivery today and she was hilarious! I love how we get to be actresses as teachers. It's the best! I can't wait to see what is in store for snowflake! :)
