Elf Watch 2011

Our Elf on the Shelf classroom experience is rolling on like a runaway snowball! We've been journaling the mischief of our elf C.C. (I nicknamed him because I was not diggin' the name Christmas Chris that the kids came up with). These pages come from my Elf on a Shelf unit at TpT. (P.S. The unit also comes with a more primary version of the journal.) We put the journal together inside a construction paper folder and glued the introduction page to the inside cover. Then we've been keeping track of C.C.'s mischief each day with the investigation pages.

Here are some shots of where C.C. has been found so far:

Then we made the elves from First Grade, Blue Skies. Seriously, how cute are these? 
Are my kids the only ones obsessed with mustaches??
 I mean, they don't even know Tom Selleck! I had plans for a whole writing activity that was going to go in the middle, but between field day, a field trip and an unexpected day off to have my tooth fixed,  time was running short. Instead, we used this elf name generator that Tamara shared over on TBA to find their elf names. Happy Fluffy-Paws, Sparkly Tum-Tum and Mistletoe Monkey-Buns were big favorites!  Click {HERE} to download the sheet if you'd like. 

I'm home from school today. Apparently my teeth are made of a substance only slightly stronger than chalk and are no match for macadamia nut cookies. I don't blame the cookie, but it did cost me half of one of my incisors. Heading to the dentist soon, hopefully just a crown will do the trick.

I'd love to see what your elves have been up to, click {HERE} to add some pix to my facebook page!

  5. I had great intentions of creating some Elf on the Shelf activities, but haven't had the chance to really create anything. So I have been debating about using this year, but I just purchased your "Elf on the Shelf" and I'm inspired to do this for our last 7 days of school before break.

  6. I nominated you for the Sunshine Award! Stop by my blog to pick it up!

  9. I am looking for your Elf on the Shelf Unit on TpT and I can't seem to find it. I've gone through all your posts on there and tried doing a search for it but it doesn't come up. When I click the link in your blog it goes to you Tpt account page, but not the Elf on the Shelf unit. I'd really like to see your unit is there a way to send a link to it?

    1. Hi there! I had to update the pack a bit to comply with copyright issues - you can find it here :) http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Santas-Spy-Resources-to-Welcome-your-North-Pole-Mischief-Maker-168882
