Here is a fun game to play with your students during that last week before the holiday break!
Just print and cut out the twelve numbered elves and hide them around your classroom.
Tell your students that twelves elves are hiding in the classroom, and it is their job to find them. During the week, students can search for the elves whenever they have a few spare moments and record the hiding places on the recording sheet. For younger students there is a separate recording sheet that does not require writing.
Be sure students know that they must keep the hiding places secret!
Another option is to play this game in one session, perhaps at your holiday party.
