Elves wanted!

Every writing activity we do has to align with the Common Core and I  want my Christmas writing to be no different.

Last year, I saw the cutest Elf Application, printed it and USED IT as my example for my students. Which means I didn't have a black line.  So, I made my own {the Common Core part is the opinion...why would you make a good elf}:






Long story short...I remade it because I couldn't find it. Low and behold, I FOUND IT ON PINTEREST!!!  It was originally made by the lovely Cara at The First Grade Parade.  So, thanks Cara, for the wonderful idea and inspiration!!

Here's my bulletin board! :) I included the letters that I used with DJ Inkers fonts and Pixel Papers background.

Super cute - we just made the elves from glyph girls and are going to write journals from their perspective. This will be an excellent warm up activity!

That is so adorable, i was used to be a school bus driver. And you know sir, my lovely little school bus mates always surprises me with little decorated cards. Their teacher Mrs. Trinity gives them assignments with ideas to create cards and then i used to select the best one of them every week. But times changed, when i became a computer guy nowdays not kids but some good teen makes me happy with their type of stuff.
