R is for Reindeer

The past week, we have been studying about reindeer. With Nathaniel, we have done an activity, where he had to use the internet to answer questions about reindeer and a labeling activity where he had to label the reindeer and answer questions (this I found at enchanted learning). We also used Draw Write Now (a series that teaches drawing techniques and then after you draw the picture, it has a factual sentence about it for you to copy down, so you practice your handwriting too) to draw a reindeer. To finish off our session on reindeer, we made reindeer cookies (and gingerbread too- since we didn't have time before Christmas). The kids had fun and the cookies were yummy. Which one do you like best?

The younger kids have been studying the letter R, for reindeer, so next week, we will be doing more work with the letter R and if I get my act together, there will be a stuffed animal R, the first in a series of 26 letters.
