Tuesday: Snowflake was sitting by the fire reading a stack of Christmas books and had stolen one of our gingerbread books as well! (They were so excited to share one of their favorite stories with him.. they are crazy for anything gingerbread!)
Wednesday: Snowflake brought us a gift! North Pole snow and magic elf seeds. He told us to plant them and something special would grow over night.
Thursday: Snowflake was patiently waiting to eat his candy cane until the class came into to discover what had grown from the magic elf seeds.
Sadly on Thursday, a student touched our elf and he lost his magic! One sweet student suggested cinnamon to help Snowflake feel better. At lunch she asked the cafeteria for a bag of cinnamon and returned excited to fix our elf! We placed a circle of cinnamon around Snowflake and hoped for the best. When the students returned later in the day from specials, it looked as if Snowflake had finally eaten his candy cane and returned to the North Pole.
