Holiday Elf Editing Activity
I have been hard at work creating my latest product, just in time for the holiday season. It's the second in my series holiday editing stories. It is a 4 day editing story called "The Diary of Jingles the Elf".
Two of the teachers I work with introduced me to this idea by sharing a Halloween editing story that we use every year. The students LOVE it! In fact, they loved it so much they begged me to create another one for Thanksgiving, which I did! Guess what they asked for next? That's right! One for the December holidays!
The best part is that each story ends with a surprise for the class (which is optional), but it really creates a "buy-in" for the activity. The kiddos are having so much fun, they hardly notice that they are learning!
