This was my 1st year to have an elf visit my classroom. It was a lot of fun!
Students loved collecting "evidence" to prove Brutus was the suspect of the mischief. Not too sure if there were real behavior improvements shown from Brutus's visit, but writing skills sure improved by completing a investigation journal each day.
This activity helped my students make connections to our Weekly Written Assessment Question: Provide "evidence" from the story to support your answer!
NO MORE BRUTUS!
Snowballs left by Brutus!
