During our Fall break, I wrote a letter to Santa asking if he would consider sending us another scout elf, the way that he did last year. It was exciting to have our school secretary arrive at our classroom on Monday morning after recess, with a little parcel, that was cold to the touch.
Inside was a lovely letter from Santa, saying that he would like the children to remember that he comes to visit them on Christmas Eve because it is Jesus' birthday. He sent us an elf!
This book explains all anyone needs to know about how the elf manages to fly back to the North Pole to report to Santa every night. (It's magic!) That's one of the reasons that we can't touch our elf. Her magic would rub off!
Here she is! The children named her, just like Santa asked them to.....Snowflake!
On Tuesday morning, the children found a pencil at each of their table spots. Snowflake was on the back bench. She had used some pencils to spell out the work "HI"
