OK, we all know the Elf On The Shelf, right?! I’m sure many of us even use the elf in our classroom. It’s so much fun and really does help with behavior during December when the ‘staches have lost their minds. And it really is a hoot watching the ‘staches react to the antics of the elf. Well….I have a confession. The elf creeps me that crap out. I just have visions of him roaming around my house, messing with my stuff. And honestly…dolls in general creep me out. When I rode “It’s A Small World” at Disney it wasn’t pretty. And for that matter…people in costumes are a phobia. Mascots, characters, clowns. No. But it never fails when a mascot makes an appearance at school, they always seek me out. They know…just like that elf. But I digress.
This year I wanted to do the elf in my classroom. I have a student who is a Jehovah Witness so I wanted to respect her. And let’s be honest, I don’t want an elf roaming my room at night. So, with the help of my Facebook friends, I decided to use a fox. It tied in perfectly with our What Does The Fox Say? centers (which are an epic hit in our room, btw!) and our fascination with that amazing song.
So, an idea was born.

Would you mind sharing the letter you have from Jack Frost?
Not sure what you mean. Can you tell me where you are seeing that we have a letter from Jack Frost?
Oh, you had said that the Fox left a letter and it was from Jack Frost…?
Ohhhh…this was is a blog post from 2013 so I am not really sure what I wrote in the letter but you can just get creative and use your imagination to write a letter! 😉
