Reindeer Day

Friday was Reindeer Day in our 1st Grade Class.  We began the day by reading a story about our favorite magical reindeer . . . Rudolph.  We have all heard the story of Rudolph’s 1st Christmas but we got to hear all about the adventure he had the following year.  We read Rudolph to the Rescue and then made our very own Rudolph art project complete with glittery red nose.

We also learned facts about real reindeer.  We began {at the end of the day on Thursday} by brainstorming a list of things we already knew about reindeer on the Promethean board and then we listed some things we would like to learn.  On Friday we read a book about reindeer and learned many interesting facts about their antlers, what they eat, where they live, etc . . .


We also made a book with reindeer facts in it and decorated the cover to look like our favorite reindeer of all . . . Rudolph of course!!!


After lunch we made our own book filled with reindeer facts.  We are continuing to work hard on using the lines and spaces correctly, leave spaces between our words, begin each sentence with a capital letter and end each sentence with the correct punctuation mark.

We ended the day by listening to one of my favorite reindeer stories, Olive the Other Reindeer.  It’s about a dog named Olive who hears on the radio that Santa is looking for “All of the Other Reindeer” and goes to the North Pole to help out.  Then we made our very own set of reindeer antlers just like the ones Santa gave Olive.  Don’t we look cute!!!DSCN3277 Happy Reindeer Day!!!
