Our class has been asking ever since we got back from Thanksgiving break if we had an Elf On a Shelf in our classroom. Well he never showed up so yesterday I told them maybe we should use our writing time to write Santa a letter asking him if we could have one, why, and how we would care for him. Here was my letter to Santa from our class yesterday.
Apparently our letters worked! When I showed up to work today our newest class member was hiding in our tree, had written a letter back to us, and left a book about him for us to read! Please welcome Mr. Beau Jingle to our class! Mr. Jingle left specific instructions that we need to follow and let us know he will be reporting back to Santa nightly about our class behavior! I hope we can show Mr. Jingle and Santa how awesome we can be!
