It's time for Five for Friday!
Monday was the day our elf made his official visit.  Everyone was so excited when our package arrived!  There was a letter from Santa telling us all about our elf and how to take care of him.
 We named our elf Jingle.  Jingle has been busy keeping an eye on our little sweeties.
On Monday Jingle stayed on top of my desk.
Tuesday, he ventured out to the chandelier!  
He had a better view of us during circle time!
Wednesday, he flew on top of the projector of the Teamboard.
On Thursday, Jingle settled right next to our class rules.  Imagine that!  
We made our own elves.
 They did a fabulous job of listening and following directions.  Check out those 'waiting hands' before we move on to the next step.  :)  We have been working very hard on that.
I got the idea for the elf craftivity from The First Grade Parade.  I think they turned out pretty darn cute!
We also have been keeping a journal of our 'elfcapades', which was a part of Cara's post.  You can check it out HERE.
Depending on the level of my little learners, we worked on color recognition and color word recognition.  
You can grab these for free HERE.

We also read 'Mooseletoe' and made these.  Love!
Link up 5 random facts about your week at Doodle Bugs Teaching!
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
Freebie Fridays


  1. I really liked these tips! I need to tell my mom. She is a first grade teacher though. I think it will help her with play time. Thanks for the preschool tips!

  2. Hi Lola,

    I popped over to visit you from the linky and am your newest follower. Working on the 'waiting hands' is a whole year effort sometimes, isn't it? :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!
