A Classroom Tradition

Last year was the first time I brought the Elf on the Shelf into my classroom environment. The children enjoyed reading his letters, writing letters to him, and looking for him as they entered the classroom. This year I thought I would bring him back  and continue with what is now a classroom tradition.

Jean-Jean, the class elf, always brings a smile to the children’s faces. Smiles which I enjoy seeing. As the Christmas breaks draws nearer, I find myself running out of places in which to put our cheeky elf.

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf at home or at your workplace?

Gratetful for iPads

Last week the administration at my school gave me a gift of five iPads. The tablets are brand new and have been given to me for use exclusively in my classroom. Apps are being added to our selection as the staff come across interesting ones that may be useful.

The children explore an app on the iPads in small groups. They enjoy this way of learning and cannot wait for it to be their turn. I am pleased to have another way for them to hone their skills in Math and in French. One of the iPads have been given to me for documentation purposes and I am grateful for this as my personal one kept running out of space!

What have you been grateful for this week?
