I never thought that trying to convince 2nd graders that a stuffed elf was actually real would be so much fun. I am not outright lying to them, and honestly if they continue to just "pretend" to believe me I am okay with that too.
What struck me yesterday was the amount of joy that Elsa brought to our classroom. Just to have a fun game to play was enough. My students loved coming into the room and seeing where she was this morning. It was such a fun game to play. I am excited to see what these next few days have in store. Even if they don't believe...we will have fun pretending.
