Diary of an Elf

Our kids are loving the perspective writing they do each day because they are writing it from an elf's perspective in our diary of an elf. It's been so fun to take the tradition to school by adding the academic component. Every morning the elf does something mischievous and the kids walk in trying to find her. When they do...they usually crack up! They go to their desks and write about the elf's adventures in our classroom overnight. If you want to use the diary of en elf in your classroom click here for the free resource! If you like it, feel free to add a positive rating :)

Here are a few images of our mischievous little elf.

  2. How creative! LOVE the idea of an ELF diary. What a great way to get the kiddos motivated about writing and also learn about perspective writing. Thanks for the tip.
