Lighting the Tree

Just created a center for my lovely Kinders.  This one has 20 bare trees, with a number in the star.  They need to place a specific number of lights on the tree, matching the number shown in the star. The trees go up to the # 20 and there are three different sheets of colored bulbs.  Check it out on TPT if you are interested...

Elf on the Shelf Tears

Oh my... We started our Elf on the Shelf this week, and if you have done this you know the rule.  DO NOT TOUCH THE ELF!  Of course there are always certain students that have to "test" and see what they can get away with... and of course that happened.  HOLY TEARS! The students were crying that a student touched him and he couldn't return home.

So what to do??!!  Well I couldn't take him away from the whole class, so I came up with this poem and made it look like he wrote it out (very small scribbled writing... harder to do than I thought haha)  I figured it would look more realistic if it was written out.... otherwise you could always place him at the computer to make it look like he was typing it.

Either way, here is the poem I wrote (he wrote):

Please stop touching me,
It made me so sad.
I couldn't fly home,
and miss Mom and Dad.

You have all been so good,
so please let me be.
I want to tell Santa
All that I see.

If you don't touch me
My magic can grow.
Then at night...
to the North Pole I'll go!

(name of your elf)

Hope this helps...ENJOY!
