Meet Elfis

http://hangingaroundinprimary.blogspot.ca/2014/12/a-week-of-elfsome-moments.html

Christina, from Hanging Around in Primary, shared what her classroom elf Snowflake is up to.  She has inspired me to share my exciting elf news from this week!
 On Monday, December 1, my class received a very special delivery!  The package was delivered by our vice-principal.  He said it had just appeared in the office!  He wasn't sure who delivered it, but it sure looked important.  It was labeled Santa's Workshop, North Pole after all!

We polled the class to see who had a birthday in December.  The birthday closest to Christmas got to open it, since it was from the North Pole.  The person chosen to open the gift was very careful and gentle opening the package.  I really wanted to just rip into it, but I resisted.  :)

Inside, we found a cute little elf!  After much debate, we named him Elfis.  Not my favourite name, but it was certainly better than some others suggested.  (Hockey Player? Hmm.... not very Christmas-y.)  My choice was Bells, but majority rules!

Somehow, my picture for December 2 is missing from my phone!  I am fairly confident I took one, but I do not know where it has gone.... Elfis was sitting on my bookshelf with a Lego City advent calendar.  Two fun things to look forward to every day!

Wednesday was an excited and scary day.  There are three elves surveying our school.  All three of them created a very festive zipline to hang off of.  Better view to keep an eye on everyone!  However, Elfis must have been getting tired of hanging on all day.  By lunchtime, the little daredevil had let one hand go!  It was quite scary!  We wrote in our agendas "Elfis is a very tricky elf."  We put a beanbag chair underneath him for a landing pad.  If he fell, we didn't want him to get a concussion.  Luckily, he stayed up.  Although, but the end of the day he was only hanging on my his feet.  Eek!

Elfis played it a little safer Thursday.  He relaxed and played a game of Battleship with Hello Kitty.

All week long we were collecting food for the Food Bank.  Elfis brought some healthy food donations.  However, he couldn't help himself and had a little tasty snack.  

I wonder what he'll be up to tomorrow?
