Elf Glyph

This Mathwire elf glyph comes complete with legend and downloadable patterns to create your student glyphs.  As with all glyphs, teachers should feel free to adjust the legend to best fit the information on your students.

Creating their own glyphs requires students to follow a legend.  However, teachers should be sure to also provide opportunities for students to analyze the class glyphs with questions that require them to identify specific information in the glyphs such as:
  • Does anyone have a "twin glyph" or someone whose glyph is exactly like yours?
  • How many people in the class like to make snowmen?
  • Do more people like warm weather or cold weather?
  • How many girls like to go sledding?
