We learned facts about real reindeer this week. I know the kids were amazed to learn the remarkable facts. We made Reindeer Facts books, made these cute reindeer antlers, and got to take home some magical reindeer food to leave out on Christmas Eve.
We have spent the week at guided reading time sharing Christmas stories and playing vocabulary games. Today the kids got to pick out a book from me for their Christmas gift and also a candy cane to use as a pointer as they read. The kids received a Christmas card from their pen pals. They have been getting letters from the Emporia State Softball Team and they sent them some really neat cards this week. The ESU team is writing to us as part of their community service hours. My daughter Karley is on the team. They also got to decorate a holiday doorknob hanger. They had a lot of fun fixing these up.
