There's an elf in my room

I ordered this elf from Amazon. He came in yesterday morning and I took him straight to my room and put him in our Christmas tree. I brought this Magic Elf package on TpT. Each day this Magic Elf will move to a different spot in our classroom. He will leave notes about the true meaning of Christmas encouraging my students to treat each other with love and kindness.

My students will find this on their desks when they come in Monday morning. I can't wait!

I found this printable on Pinterest. The Magic Elf package I bought on TpT includes notes to leave on students desk that says something like 'caught you being a magic elf'. I plan on leaving that note along with an "elf kiss" when I see someone being kind to a classmate.

I hope that this Magic Elf will keep the behavior in my class on the positive side during the month of December.

I love Christmas. I love the colors, the smells, and the joy of sharing it with my 2nd graders. I can't wait to do all kinds of activities with them and share them with you.

I also ordered this elf ornament for Magic Elf to leave for my kids to make.

What are your plans for December? I would love to hear your ideas. I love to read comments.



  1. We had an elf in our classroom last year and it was so much fun! :) Since I am team teaching, this year we will be having two elves, named Jingle and Jangle, come to our class :) We are going to keep a journal because our elves are mischievious!

  2. Cute! I just got my elf and can't wait!
