Check out this cutie. I thought he had some great ideas about what Santa is looking for in a lead reindeer. 🙂
Meet Randy, Rudy’s crazy cousin. It’s okay – we all have them.
This is another great art/writing activity that I found HERE! We made our reindeer today and though I did get started on the glittered noses, we will have to wait and finish next time while we write about them. We made the reindeer and after gluing them together, we put them on a Christmas scrapbook paper patterned square. I am offering red glitter or black glitter for the noses. Some of the kids started naming their reindeer as well. Examples: Crazy Connie, Wrinkle, Icky Nicky Nacky Nook, and Harris. Ha! Funny stuff. I’ll post some more pictures as we finish!
A fellow art teacher made these with her students last year and though she is braver than I and let them paint the whole thing, we did paint the background. It was a directed drawing and then we colored the smaller parts and painted the sky. They have turned out so cute and as always, each little reindeer has it’s own personality!
I found this awesome art and writing activity at What the Teacher Wants! I am excited about this and so are the kids. I took their pictures while they were working on another project and this week we will be putting it all together and filling out our applications. I can’t wait to see what they write and share with you!
