Elves At Work

Our Whale classroom has been filled with busy little elves! Through our study of the classic Grimm's fairytale The Elves and the Shoemaker students have explored math, literacy, art and drama. We have been growing their fine motor skills through sketching, painting, sewing and beading as we prepare holiday gifts and beautiful art for our classroom walls. Our skills in literacy and numeracy have been stretched in "wintery ways" as we wrote letters to elves, threw snowballs at sight words, and played games of "Blizzard Take-Away", "Ice and Snow Addition" and "Shoe Shop Sort and Measure"!
