A Visitor From the North
This past Christmas our class had their own Elf on the Shelf named Zippy. They loved looking for Zippy each day and looked forward to his notes and treats. I have to admit that their behavior was wonderful when they thought Zippy would be watching. Well lately our behavior has been a bit...well...naughty! So, it was time for Zippy to pop in for a visit! He has to keep his reports current for Santa you know. The kiddos were so excited to see him at their Valentine party! Zippy even hung around in the classroom for an extra day. I think the kinders wore him out though because when we came back from P.E. he was taking a nap on his shelf. The class was VERY quiet during his "nap time" and wrote a few stories about him that I'm sharing with you. Enjoy!
"I think Zippy is getting a sun burn because the lights are on."
"I like you Zippy. You are my friend. Are you going to be watching the party?"
"I like you Zippy. You are my friend and you are in the North." This was written after we discussed how tired Zippy was. He usually is on vacation at the North Pole this time of the year!
