Where did the month of December go? Seriously, it flew by. I have completely neglected this blog. Because we had four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas I finally had enough time to do all the fun Christmas stuff I normally just whiz through.
We had a whole week of Grinch fun. We brainstormed some adjectives that describe the Grinch. We also brainstormed some adjectives that describe the Grinch's heart at the end of the strory.

These are the reindeer ornamants they made for their parents. I got the idea from Mrs. Lemons over at step into second grade.
Here is a peek at the non-fiction reindeer unit I actually had time to teach. We never have four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We compared real reindeer and fantasy reindeer and made a venn diagram. I read them the sentences and they had to tell me if it was fantasy or real.
We added this poem to our poetry journals. They had to illustrate the poem and butter the popcorn words.
We learned that an adult reindeer stands about four feet tall. Then we measured to find out how tall we are compared to a reindeer.
We used interactive writing to write about reindeer.
We practiced non fiction writing.
We started the unit with a schema chart and added to the new learning section throughout the week.
Enjoy your time off. It goes too fast. You can find the reindeer activities in my reindeer unit on TPT.
