1-2-3- Come Do Some Elf Activities With Me
Since the story Elf on a Shelf continues to be very popular, I wanted to make a few new elf-themed activities.
I think you'll really enjoy how many skills & standards you can cover with this cute Little Elf emergent reader packet!
The book incorporates 34 Dolch sight words, rhyme, end punctuation (period, question mark & exclamation point), descriptive writing, use of adjectives, plus the five senses.
To spice things up with a little math, I’ve also included 5 graphing extensions as well as...
An interesting and super-fun rhyming activity that matches the 5 pairs of words that rhyme in the story. I’ve included answer keys.
This can be done independently on the worksheet provided, or students can work in teams.
As another option, do a different set of words orally, by having students stand up.
You start the game by saying the word go. (I chose this word for the oral competition, because I found 135 words that rhyme with it.)
The first student gives a word; you write it on the board so there are no repeats.
If a child can’t think of a word, they’re out.
Play continues ’til there are no words left, or whoever is left can’t think of another word.
There's a teacher's edition in full color, as well as black line masters, with 2, as well as 4 pages, on a one-page template.
To further reinforce the 5 senses, I've also included boy & girl elves to color and label.
There's also a mini "cut & glue" similar version. It's an Itty Bitty booklet where children read, add end punctuation, circle the capital letters, underline the adjectives, trace & write the 5 senses words; then color, cut and glue the matching picture.

The featured FREEBIE today is the Santa's List packet. Students write why they think that they should be on Santa's "nice" list.
After students share their page, collect, collate, add the cover and make into a class book.
Includes a Santa's List poster to use as a good-behavior motivator, as well as a template for students to write a note to their Elf on a Shelf or to Santa. These make fun Daily 5 writing activities.

Well that's it for today. My brain is on overdrive, brimming with all sorts of things I want to design.
I LOVE December and all of the themes. My little ones make it even more magical. Wishing you a fun-filled day.
