The Elf Assistant Project is a fun tradition every holiday season in my classroom. Each morning a different student will receive a note from either Emma or Erik who are elves from the North Pole. They leave a hat, a letter, and a badge for the student and a request to help them promote kindness throughout the school. We collect the letters from the students and send them back to the North Pole as we leave for winter break. My students love the surprise and the responsibility of the kindness mission. The file includes both color and printer-friendly versions.
