Our Elf on the Shelf Has Arrived! Link to a GREAT Freebie!

I linked up with my good friend, Mel, from Seusstastic Classroom Inspirations who is hosting an Elf on the Shelf Linky Party.  She has more ideas than you can imagine and now others are linking up with their elf shenanigans, too!
Here is my sweet (and SMART!) 2nd grader reading the long note to them from Santa.
It detailed what the elf's role in the house is, what they need to work on, and what they needed to do.
I caved this year and got the "real" Elf on the Shelf set for both my home AND my classroom.  I kind of messed up and packed our house elf in with all of our Christmas decorations and, low and behold, the kids found him as we were unpacking.  So, we decided he must have stayed with us because he was retiring (look, he does look to be an "older" elf, right?), like grampy did recently AND because he liked the boys so much, too, of course.  My youngest (5 years) was perplexed by the fact that the elf didn't fly back to the North Pole with I had to do some damage control (he was very concerned that there would be no elf this year at our house):  I called Santa with the concern (I know...lies, lies, lies....) and he said elves are usually sent out to homes around the 1st of December). 
 Well, guess who the boys found sitting in the freezer on December 1st?  Yup, it is Chris (short for "Christmas is coming" you know!).  He had a nice letter from Santa, the book and a printable chain to create and countdown to Christmas.  You can get yours from Royal Baloo (along with many other FREE Elf on the Shelf freebies) here!  This was an incredible find and it is all FREE.  Thank you Royal Baloo
 Day 2 had Chris sitting on the dining room light with the video that the kids really enjoyed watching.  It really impresses on them the importance of NOT touching the elf (or he will lose his magic).   I just bought the girl elf for my classroom.  She will be delivered by our incredible, fun-loving custodian in a box of ice at some point this week.  I am so excited and I know the children will be, too!
We will also be making our gigantic dancing elves this week to deck the halls with the cutest, little elves you ever did see!

You can make these fun elves with your students/children as well:
