Reindeer and The Grinch

We spent a day on reindeer this week. Love the extra touch on the reindeer Teacher Bits and Bobs added.

We also wrote reindeer applications. We had already read non-fiction books about reindeer and completed a reindeer tree map so the kids knew what skills were needed to be a good reindeer. The application came from ??? I used this last year.

We used interactive writing to complete the reindeer tree map. Kim Adsit wrote a great post on interactive writing over at her blog. We get in a circle and pass out the white boards and markers and everybody writes while I share the marker with someone.

Interactive writing in action

We've been singing this cute song to the tune of camptown ladies.

Grinch Day!!!!
Activities inspired by Deanna Jump and Cara Carroll

This one is so cute! It says, "To make the Grinch grin I would be his girlfriend." Love it!


Grinchy adjectives for when his heart was two sizes too small.

 Who pudding and green candy canes.

Grinch dolls were at Kohl's last year.

Grinch shirts are from Wal-mart. All but one kid dressed in green today. It was so fun and everybody looked adorable.
