As promised, in this post, I will share a little tutorial on how to “Elf Yourself” and your students!!
I have been doing this fun little project since my first year of teaching Kindergarten 13 years ago. It’s always a parent favorite. But, I’ve gotten a little bit better and faster at it over the years. And, my elf pattern has gotten a little cuter 🙂 Ha!!
Here is a picture of an elf that I made during my very first year of teaching. It’s hard to believe, the elf boy in this picture is a Senior in High School and is the person who has been doing all of my videos for me!!! (You may have seen him in my classroom reveal video 🙂 It’s the most amazing thing to watch your students grow and see who they become!!! So, so proud of this one!!
You can find my new and improved elf pattern along with some other fun elf activities in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Just click on the picture below!!
Aditionally, in the pack above, you will get printable ears that you can copy on multicultural construction paper. Then, you would glue them to your little elves’ heads. Going that route, is a little bit easier and less time consuming than the more “techie” version that you will see below. You can see a picture of an elf with the paper ears in the picture above of the front cover of the pack.
UPDATE: If you own this pack, you can now download it again to get the newly updated version. It comes with bulletin board graphics and title to print. Also included, is the slightly larger teacher/head elf pattern. (Now includes 49 pages)
