Thanks to

Teachers Pay Teachers I have had some real fun with my first grade loves!  We have been busy answering Christmas themed prompts and crafting away!  Everyone in school has something to say about what the 1st grade is doing(Granted my husband and bank account aren't too happy about my love affair with TPT)!  Our pilgrims from Deanna Jumps unit were a hit and now we are "elfed up".  Here is what our hallway display looks like... 

 Totally stole this idea from Abby at The Inspired Apple.  The only thing I changed was to add the red pom-poms for noses.  I often wonder if I am the only teacher who makes one of every project / craftivity her students do.  I swear I live first grade every year again.   
On my To Do List this weekend is to some of my school's teachers reindeer as well.  
Next we elf'ed ourselves!  Using a template I got off TPT I had my kiddos make themselves elves and then answer the questions
  1. If were an Elf on the Shelf my name would be...
  2. I would hide... 
I used the AWESOME Christmas clip art I won from What the Teacher Wants and hope I can share this (very simple) printable soon.  I named myself Spice :)
