So, today I had a sixth grader that needed a "time out" spend the day in my room. I told my class that he was an Elf sent by Santa to make sure they were being good. They stared at him in disbelief and told me that he was too tall to be an Elf.
We went on with our morning and I kept catching my students staring at the "Elf" sitting in the back of the room as they tried to figure out who he was and why he was in our room.
I was working with a group of kids when I heard a voice on the other side of the room ask, "Do you make toys?" I looked up to see that one of my students had finally gotten brave enough to walk over to where our "Elf" was sitting and was standing there waiting for an answer to his question.
I can't even begin to tell you how happy it made me when this kid just went with it! I couldn't hear his answer, but he was smiling and shaking head as he answered.
My student stood there listening and then asked, "So, you've met Santa Claus?"
These are the moments that I love the most!
