In the days leading up to Christmas the English Class second graders were very busy elves indeed! They created elf paper clips from pieces of felt and clothes pins. They also made wonderful snowman lanterns by gluing bath salts onto baby food jars. Every day of Advent meant that a different member of the second grade class got to sit in the Elf Chair and be Elf-of-the-Day, depending upon whose name was in the numbered cubby on their Advent calendar. Once the Elf-of-the-Day was seated on the Elf Chair, classmates took turns saying kind things about the Elf-of-the-Day. As can be seen from the photo collage above, it was quite an enjoyable experience!
First, second and third graders all go to hear Ms. Sylvia read the famous poem, The Night Before Christmas. Second graders also had time to work on colourful crosswords featuring Christmas vocabulary words.
